  alexmagnus: In case of the Bacrot game, the exact date is on the scorsheet. Is it possible to trace the date of submission?

  alexmagnus: <White Rook> The exact date on the scoresheet makes one believe it. A pity the date of game's submission to the database is unknown (admins maybe know it?)
Nov-23-09  SPINK: Only naka would be enough of a jerk to promote to 5 knights, so I believe that he played it, not Bacrot, he's a true professional

  FSR: Ha! I did almost exactly the same thing in a tournament game once - promoting to five knights, and using them and my surviving "regular" knight to mate. I hid my king, and a bishop and a rook that I still had, in the other corners of the board.
Dec-08-09  vonKrolock: Funny, what was this - a bet?! ... For a more sophisticated idea with <10 ♘s>, have a look at this online article by Tim Krabbé <"The Horse Concoction"> http://www.xs4all.nl/~timkr/tour/ho...
May-22-10  tentsewang: Nakamura is an enigmatic star of our day today.
May-26-10  jrlepage: What a clown.

  Phony Benoni: <alexmagnus> Judging from the Game ID#s, the Nakamura game was submitted first. I can't be sure of the dates, but judging from tournament games with similar game ID#s the Nakamura game was added in December, 2007, the Bacrot game in July, 2008.

As far as I can tell, the scores are identical, which means that one of the games was submitted in error or as a joke. After all, we can't have NN playing as well as Crafty, can we?

Nakamura is known to pull stunts like this,, so I'm inclined to think the Bacrot version should be pulled. Does anybody know if he even played on ICC?

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.

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.
