|Jan-24-09|| ||WhiteRook48: king on h7 wins??|
|Mar-17-09|| ||Katu: Wow, the first time I went thru this game I thought Black hasa mating attack, he must wint, but... wait, he is playing Nakamura!|
|Sep-06-09|| ||WhiteRook48: the walking king|
|Jun-13-10|| ||zuizui: Bishop g6 check then must taken the Queen and thenRock h8 mat ;is this all right;)|
|Jun-13-10|| ||zuizui: 41...Bg6 42 ...Rh8++|
|Sep-12-10|| ||sevenseaman: The King walking without a care. I wont say I've seen anything like this before. What cheeky brinkmanship, but Black has no sustainable challenge!|
Revisitor's monument. The sharper the climax, the greater the delight.
|Jan-18-13|| ||Cemoblanca: The King "mated" the B, R + Q! :D That's new for me! ;)|
|Mar-31-15|| ||HeMateMe: I love how the King walks to the other side of the board.|
|Mar-31-15|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Poyatos deserves all the credit in the world how he fearlessly went after Nakamura. Outstanding fight.|
|Mar-31-15|| ||RookFile: I wish I had the slightest idea of what was going on in this game. It looks ridiculously complicated at my first viewing.|
|Mar-31-15|| ||watwinc: <zuizui> said it back in 2010 - why not 41 … Bg6ch 42 Qxg6 Rh8 mate?|
|Mar-31-15|| ||SirRuthless: Terrible pun. Weak gotd.|
|Mar-31-15|| ||goodevans: <watwinc: <zuizui> said it back in 2010 - why not 41 … Bg6ch 42 Qxg6 Rh8 mate>|
|Mar-31-15|| ||morfishine: Very entertaining game!
I don't see how "mashed" fits in. Reminds me of the movie 'Dumb & Dumber: Dumb (submitted) & Dumber (voted for)
|Mar-31-15|| ||Ratt Boy: <SirRuthless: Terrible pun. Weak gotd.>
Weak? I found it quite entertaining. As others have commented, Naka's King Walk showed steely nerve.|
|Mar-31-15|| ||OhioChessFan: That pun is so bad it's hilarious.|
|Mar-31-15|| ||offramp: Brilliant game and a good pun, a very good pun! I always like games where someone pays an early B-K3 with the e-pawn still on K2. It looks bad but it shows inventiveness. I ALSO LIKE king walks in the middle game, although this was more of a king march (which is different). |
Is there a name for a half-king-march and half-king-walk?
|Mar-31-15|| ||OhioChessFan: 41...Rg6 42. Bxg6 Bg8+ 43. Kh8 Bf7+ 44. Kh7 Bf8+ 1/2|

|Mar-31-15|| ||kevin86: White king wanders all the way to h7 and wins!|
|Mar-31-15|| ||psmith: Stockfish sees <OhioChessFan>'s draw but thinks Nakamura could have won with 40. Rxc4.|
Also, earlier, Stockfish thinks Black draws with 37.... Qe8+ instead of Be8+.
|Mar-31-15|| ||ajile: 37..Qe8+ appears to draw easily.|
|Mar-31-15|| ||ajile: Darn it you beat me to it.
|Mar-31-15|| ||mruknowwho: I guess Black could have tried 42...Rxg3. After which, 43. hxg3 Bg8+ 44. Kg6 Qe8+, and he can try to see if he can get anything out of it. If Black's turns out to be pretty fortunate, White might respond to 42...Rxg3 with 43. Qxf7?? 44. Rh3+!|
|Mar-31-15|| ||Rookiepawn: Hey, the pun is a little hard on the Spanish IM imo. He really pushed and went for it all, I wouldn't say he got "mashed". |
Well, his hopes maybe...
|Apr-01-15|| ||morfishine: <Rookiepawn: Hey, the pun is a little hard on the Spanish IM imo. He really pushed and went for it all, I wouldn't say he got "mashed".|
Well, his hopes maybe...> Absolutely, the pun misses the mark completely: Black was doing all the attacking, sacrificing a Knight, forcing White to defend with perfect accuracy
But in the end, after Naka's outrageous King-walk, White is a piece to the good. One could easily have been watching the game live and wondered 'What is Naka doing, "smoking peyote?" '
