Feb-05-06  EmperorAtahualpa: A very accurately executed endgame by Nakamura. 38...Rxb4 worked out very well for him. Nice game!

  ajile: White played very passively in the opening and allowed Black to gain a big space advantage in return for a pawn. However White gives the pawn back and from then on it's downhill for White.
Feb-08-06  XMarxT3hSpot: White's play was poor IMO
Jan-23-14  GREYSTRIPE: From the beginning of the first move's sequence, Grandmaster of Tournament Games of Chess Hikaru Nakamura took control of the center from both center-holds A5-N5-E5 Nakamura Chess and the base-rank. There is undefeated in Nakamura a effulgent makings-of-chess. The Knights-Bishops-Holds of Nakamura is an Ottoman. There, when the opponent made a pawn mistake forwarding Bishop, Nakamura made weight. At this level of play, there is no room for anything else but weight. Unafraid, Nakamura captured the holds.
