|Nov-28-09|| ||returnoftheking: thanks-now it works for me too- very slow/bumpy feed though.|
|Nov-28-09|| ||achieve: Carlsen was easily winning and miscalculated in timetrouble; this surprised me, as I did not see any reason to let the a-pawn run while up a pawn... Naka off the hook, Carlsen on the hook for a change...|
|Nov-28-09|| ||returnoftheking: < Naka off the hook, Carlsen on the hook for a change>
Black (MC) looks winning to me.|
|Nov-28-09|| ||siamesedream: Nakamura - Carlsen 2-1.|
|Nov-28-09|| ||zarg: Good game by Naka!|
|Nov-28-09|| ||returnoftheking: How come I still see the game being played and you guys already know it's conclusion?:o|
|Nov-28-09|| ||siamesedream: < How come I still see the game being played and you guys already know it's conclusion?:o> There's delay on webcam.|
|Nov-28-09|| ||Jim Bartle: Because all the moves are prearranged. Didn't you know?|
|Nov-28-09|| ||dx9293: Magnus simply crushed Hikaru in Game 1, the other two games have been very entertaining!|
|Nov-28-09|| ||returnoftheking: Jim, in that case I don't think Nak would win a single game.|
|Nov-28-09|| ||siamesedream: Standings:
|Nov-28-09|| ||watermate: Naka has done it!|
|Nov-28-09|| ||Atking: Nakamura just won the match vs Carlsen|
|Nov-28-09|| ||Jim Bartle: I'm sure this won't heat up discussion on any player pages...|
|Nov-28-09|| ||baseballplayer: Surprised to see Nakamura beat Carlsen.|
|Nov-28-09|| ||supertimchan: Not very surprising. Nakamura has always been the the best blitz player and has beaten Carlsen many times on ICC......|
|Nov-28-09|| ||zarg: ICC king Naka showed his class, after a bad start. Well done!|
|Nov-28-09|| ||dx9293: Wow. Wow. Wow. Who else could win three consecutive blitz games against Carlsen besides maybe his trainer?!|
|Nov-28-09|| ||turbo231: I told everybody that Naka has a quick mind. He beat Rybka, and Crafty! You can go to youtube and watch him beat Rybka. He made Rybka look foolish.|
|Nov-28-09|| ||The Rocket: nakamura was lost in 2 of his games vs carlsen.. now thats suprising!|
even more so that carlsen manages to lose that knight endgame a pawn up.. but perhaps they had seconds left by that point.
|Nov-28-09|| ||The Rocket: "I told everybody that Naka has a quick mind. He beat Rybka, and Crafty!"|
LOL crafty? I mated crafty in a 5min blitz game as black!,
and drawn it twice in 1min bullet games..
the icc version of crafty you get for free that is... I dont now know the estimated elo on it?
|Nov-28-09|| ||metatron2: <ICC king Naka showed his class>|
Indeed, he proved he is not just an internet blitz "mouser", but a really great blitz player.
I hope he'll (finally) participate in the next blitz WC, show us if he can really handle the elite over a long series of blitz games.
|Nov-28-09|| ||Atking: <The Rocket: nakamura was lost in 2 of his games vs carlsen..> That's true but Nakamura keeping confidence and fighting spirit has my praise.|
Of course that's blitz and the lucky part is of value, but even with a little luck only few players can do what Nakamura did here.
I'm with <zarg> here congratulate Nakamura is showing respect to Carlsen too and sportsmanship.
|Nov-28-09|| ||MrMelad: Congratulations Nakamura for winning against Magnus! A great achievement for him although the quality of games was very low, Carlsen showed a very bad technique dropping his big advantages time and again. Carlsen will be eating himself up for missing so many winning moves...|
|Nov-28-09|| ||boz: <nakamura was lost in 2 of his games vs carlsen>|
Are you saying the first half of the game is more important than the second half?
