2010 Cap d'Agde Invitational

The first part of the rapid chess invitational is over - the top four players from each group have been decided, as reported at Susan Polgar's chess blog.  Here are the players from each group going into the knock-out round:

Group B
1-2. Ivanchuk, Vassily g UKR 2754 5½
1-2. Le Quang Liem g VIE 2694 5½
3-4. Pelletier, Yannick g SUI 2592 4
3-4. Hammer, Jon Ludvig g NOR 2633 4

Group A
1. Nakamura, Hikaru g USA 2733 6½
2. Bu Xiangzhi g CHN 2695 5½
3. Nguyen Ngoc Truong Son g VIE 2633 4
4. Polgar, Judit g HUN 2682 3½

Can anyone beat Nakamura, a master at this type of chess?  Maybe he's the best ever at this type of chess.  Judit Polgar, the top rated female chessplayer in the world and the sole survivor of the other female players, has her work cut out for her, that's for sure!
