    Japan Update

    August 15, 2009 • General

    This is a quick update for those who are interested. I am currently in the lead by a whole point here in the Japan League with a score of 6/6. However, I will be playing FM Akira Watanabe (used to be 2400 Fide) tomorrow, so it should be interesting. Once I return to the US for half a day on the 17th, I’ll add a complete recap on the tournament.

    1. Woot! Get’em!!

    2. Nakamura-san,

      I met you at the U.S. Open and spoke Japanese with you at the closing ceremony. Congratulations on your slew of victories! I just wanted to thank you for graciously taking the time to speak with me and also for reccommending the King’s Indian — It’s really been serving me well.

      Could you comment on the state of Japanese chess and the tournament you are playing in? I lived as a student in Japan for a couple of years (when Fischer was there!) and did not realize there was a chess scene. I always saw shogi articles in the newspapers and shogi clubs near train stations, but never ran across an actual chess club. I am also wondering if Japanese players start out with shogi and have a different playing style from Westerner as a result.

      Good luck and ganbatte kudasai!
