|Oct-31-08|| ||notyetagm: Damn, Naka just *smoked* his ass.|
|Oct-31-08|| ||JointheArmy: Nakamura is so strong.|
|Oct-31-08|| ||Woody Wood Pusher: Nice game by Naka.|

This is one of the worst beating I have seen a 2700 take all year.

|Nov-02-08|| ||Mendrys: Ouch! After the smoke clears from Nxd5 black has 1 awkwardly placed bishop in play and 1 pawn passed the 2nd rank while white has 3 pieces in play and is up 2 pawns. |
I wonder when Vichier LaGrave knew this wasn't going to be his game.
|Nov-02-08|| ||Atking: Yeah an interesting sacrifice. But Vachier went badly with 24...f5? 24...Nf6 was obvious and natural.|
|Nov-02-08|| ||Atking: My previous post wasn't precise as 25.f4 with 26.0-0 is embarassing. Looking again (and more seriously) at the game, I think Black could (must) play 22...Nge7. Now 23.f4 g5! looks playable.|
|Nov-02-08|| ||notyetagm: Pwnage.|
|Nov-02-08|| ||DiscoJew: White just kept coming and coming and coming...
The forward momentum of the white pieces was steered with elegance for the duration of the game and climaxed with with the transitional 26.Rxf8! winning more wood and the easy endgame.
Bravo Hikaru nice work m8. My sources tell me Naka is moving to my great country, Canada, specifically the Vancouver area...is there any truth to this?
If this wonderful claim is true, maybe we'll see some sort of intellectual shift, and many Chess players, Artists, Musicians, Doctor's and so on will flock to this wonderful free land.
|Nov-02-08|| ||refutor: <my source tell me Naka is moving to Canada>|
this is true...he's been in Vancouver since the beginning of the summer IIRC

Yes, soon the top of Nakamura's head will go up and down when he talks, like a true Canadian. :-)
|Nov-03-08|| ||KingG: In his blog, Nakamura says that his opponent walked into some deep preparation that he had done before the tournament. http://www.hikarunakamura.com/main/...|
|Nov-04-08|| ||PinkPanther: So what if he crushed Lagrave. This is just a blitz game.|
|Nov-04-08|| ||FSR: Was 18...Bxd5 19.Qxd5 axb5 20.Bxb5 Ne7 playable?|

That anti-Nakamura nonsense no longer applies.
