|Jun-13-05|| ||schnarre: <Rocafella> It happens, especially here on the one & only chessgames.com!!! Roll with it!|
|Jun-13-05|| ||SADDAM: Naka VS. Radga:
Nakamura is unpredictable.... Very good at swindling people, often plays with computer precision but also makes many positional errors and his opening is a weakness. Ratings are close but radga has played at the very top and naka has not! But in rapid or blitz match i would put my money on naka! And nowdays there arent that many classical mathches being played.
|Jun-13-05|| ||Rocafella: <schnarre> You got that right!
<SADDAM> I don't think that playing in the top level would help that much here even though it is a factor. I mean at that age, playing chess against any GM is going to make you crap yourself (Excuse the language)
I do agree though that Naka would have a much better chance in a rapid or blitz match. I would still put my money on Radjabov though.|
|Jun-13-05|| ||acirce: <I mean 3 losses 2 draws 1 win.>|
Yes, something like that. Although instead of playing around trying to predict the exact result, I'd just say that I believe Radjabov would win quite convincingly. He's simply a better player, and Nakamura is not likely to do well against anyone near 2700.
|Jun-13-05|| ||aw1988: That recent game vs Sasikiran for example.|
|Jun-13-05|| ||iron maiden: <Nakamura is not likely to do well against anyone near 2700.> Actually, his record this year against players rated 2650 or above is not bad at all: a win against Smirin, draws with Dreev and Aronian and only the one loss to Sasikiran. Four games is a rather small amount to make a serious judgement on, though.|
|Jun-13-05|| ||kevin86: Today is the 25th anniversary of the first Friday the 13th movie-as well as THE SHINING.|
For the second time in a week-a bishop is so bad,that even a piece ahead,the game can't be held. The draw was fnally avoided at move 100-where g6 is stalemate.
|Jun-14-05|| ||PaulLovric: Brilliant ending too|
|Jun-14-05|| ||PinkPanther: <You Rang>
Well, not only on the last rating list, but it's easier to gain rating points in America beating up on patzers, than it is for Radjabov playing 2600's and 2700's ALL the time.
|Jun-14-05|| ||schnarre: <kevin86> 25th anniversary of two horror classics, eh!? Doesn't seem lke that long ago. I still remember the original Amityville Horror.|
|Jun-14-05|| ||YouRang: <PinkPanther> I agree, which is why I stated that these statistics might not be very meaningful.|
My purpose in mentioning the relative gains in rating points was not to suggest that Nakamura is 'improving faster' than Radjabov, or anything like that.
On the other hand, if Radjabov had been playing these same 'patzers' that Nakamura has been facing, what kind of record would he have amassed against them? I suggest that his record would probably be similar to Nakamura's -- supporting the idea that they are competitively matched.
|Jun-14-05|| ||PinkPanther: This endgame is also relatively similar to: Fischer vs Taimanov, 1971|
|Jun-15-05|| ||schnarre: <PinkPanther> Quite so!|
|Jun-16-05|| ||crumpy: This game can be found in 'New in Chess' 2005 issue 4 pg. 29|
|Jun-17-05|| ||schnarre: <crumpy> Thanks!|
|Jun-18-05|| ||crumpy: <schnarre> You are welcome|
|Nov-28-05|| ||DeepBlade: Yawn 100 moves...
I simply love the final position, the 2 forced King moves get the initiative, and White gets his deserved win, after so many moves.
|Dec-04-07|| ||King mega: NOT THIS GAME?!|
|Dec-05-07|| ||square dance: maybe they should change the game title to "red herring". ;-)|
|Dec-05-07|| ||Domdaniel: Ho hum. Late again, *and* wrong ...|
|Dec-05-07|| ||JointheArmy: You guys use google too?|
|Mar-28-08|| ||Everett: Black's 19th is strange. Shouldn't that knight attempt to make it to the e4 square. It may be cumbersome, but black gives up his best piece in this position when the play did not seem forced.|
|Jul-12-08|| ||4tmac: The ending was drawn after whites 85 move. BLACK should have drawn with 88. ... B-e5 as stated in other posts. WHITE would have had a win with 85. K-g6! however. Advancing K & Ps was more important than keeping things off the light squares.|
|Mar-07-09|| ||WhiteRook48: who is this Persson?|
|Apr-26-09|| ||WhiteRook48: I would love to see three pawns beat a rook|
