|May-31-09|| ||chillowack: Magnificent combination by Nakamura, comparable to Fischer's "Game of the Century" vs. Donald Byrne.|
|Jul-02-09|| ||ToTheDeath: A modern day immortal- sure to be included in the future collections on the King Hunt. Definitely the best game I've seen from Nakamura so far.|
|Jul-05-09|| ||Whitehat1963: Truly amazing combination.|
|Aug-23-09|| ||tentsewang: Nakamura has a very skillful combination that will thrill even a good player like Krasenkow . Good job Hikaru!|
|Oct-22-09|| ||TheMacMan: they should have named this game Nakas Thunderbolt!|
|Dec-10-09|| ||Halfpricemidge: Perhaps 20.Bc3 would have been better for white.|
|Apr-21-10|| ||SirChrislov: I remember seeing this game in a newspaper column. After going through it, at the end it said: "undoubtedly a game that will be included in future tactic books". White's opening has flaws, but still a thunderbolt of a combination.|
I'm reminded of one critic who said 'In the past, people would shower the stage with golden coins after such a game as this one.'
|Sep-24-10|| ||sevenseaman: I have always noticed a touch of class about Nakamura, and a daring.|
|Apr-01-11|| ||Richard Taylor: Incredible game.|
|Nov-07-11|| ||Tigranny: <chillowack> Nice comparision even though I like this game more.|
|Jan-05-12|| ||onthehouse: To be sure, a beautiful thing to behold!|
|Feb-11-12|| ||piltdown man: Jeepers, what a game.
|May-27-12|| ||jkromz: At first I could not see why 24 ...Ne5ch was not refuted by 25 Rxe5 Rxe5; that seems to put the kibosh on Naka's brilliancy. Then you see it, the zwischenzug 25 ...Bc8ch! (!!). That's a beautiful idea to see in advance --giving a check with Ne5 to clear the c8-h3 diagonal. I couldn't see it even it staring me in the face-- he saw it far ahead! Fantastic.|
|Sep-08-12|| ||Garech: Great queen Sac from Naka!
|Jan-27-13|| ||PhilFeeley: A terrific game from an almost completely known opening. Everything seemed perfectly ordinary up until about move 11.|
|Feb-09-13|| ||Mudphudder: Sick, sick, sick game! One of the best I've seen.|
|Sep-06-13|| ||Ken Tao: I follow Nakamura on Twitter. He has a lot of sharp things to say there!|
|Nov-23-13|| ||mbvklc: What is the purpose of 26...f6 ?|
|Nov-23-13|| ||Shams: <mbvklc> As is often the case, if you scroll through the previous kibitzing you'll find your question has been answered.|
|Feb-14-14|| ||mjmorri: A rather pedestrian combination giving Naka lovers the false notion that he is some sort of chess genius on an arc toward the world championship.|

Which you, of course, would have unearthed in a nanosecond had you been sitting at the board.
Please do us all a favour and share your improvements on Black's play, as it is plain you regard yourself as a towering genius.
|Feb-14-14|| ||mjmorri: <perfidious> There is nothing wrong with the combination. However, it is quite linear with not a lot of deep side variations, and no tangled messes to unravel.|
|Feb-14-14|| ||perfidious: If '(t)here is nothing wrong with the combination', then why denigrate its merits?|
|Feb-14-14|| ||mjmorri: My complaint lies with the Naka lovers who try to extrapolate a few impressive looking games into a run to the world championship. I do not see his name among those playing in the Candidates Tournament in March.|
|Feb-21-14|| ||Travis Bickle: Awesome chess!|
