May-29-09  champsylove: Such high praise for Nakamura.
Where would I start on my journey to chess renaissance creativity?
Jun-11-09  heizfeld: Nakamura is very creative
A rough slap into the face of the pathetic "A.I."
Jul-22-09  Dredge Rivers: A horse, a horse,
my kingdom for a horse! :)
Oct-26-09  ongyj: Why didn't Crafty resign?
Oct-28-09  CeeFoR: Computers don't resign unless their masters do it for them.

  computer chess guy: <Computers don't resign unless their masters do it for them.> Not so .. Crafty will resign when its evaluation gets too low (it is configurable).

  alexmagnus: The NN vs Bacrot game looks like the copy of it... Is it for real? If yes, Nakamura played probably the longest copied game ever:)
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: In case of the Bacrot game, the exact date is on the scorsheet. Is it possible to trace the date of submission?
Dec-08-09  vonKrolock: Funny, what was this - a bet?! ... For a more sophisticated idea with <10 Ns>, have a look at this online article by Tim Krabbé <"The Horse Concoction">
May-22-10  tentsewang: Nakamura is an enigmatic star of our day today.
May-26-10  jrlepage: What a clown.
Sep-05-10  kungfufighter888: why crafty dont resigned earlier on lol

  kevin86: She'll be riding six BLACK horses when she comes,when she comes...
Feb-19-11  LoveThatJoker: Amazing!


Jun-07-11  DummyPawn: Starting around move 147 it looks like Nakamura is playing a variant of Conway's Game of Life with his knights.
Jun-21-11  IRONCASTLEVINAY: I was thinking about Robert Hyat
Jun-21-11  IRONCASTLEVINAY: CRAFTY ENGINE crushed by Naka's 6 horsepower Engine.
Mar-14-12  soberknight: a truly unique mate position
Apr-03-12  FromMuToYou: Naka played this perfectly.

Computers sometimes don't realize how much more valuable knights are in positions like that.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Garech: Very aesthetic how the knights move together as a phalanx!

  kingscrusher: I have video annotated this game here:

Aug-09-13  GumboGambit: Looks like Nakamura is the crafty one.
Nov-02-13  chesswar1000: Funny thing is that Nakamura mated Rybka with 5 BLACK BISHOPS also...
Nov-17-13  Chessman1504: Easily the funniest game I've ever seen.
