|Jul-25-11|| ||DrMAL: lost in space: I remember meeting H-bomb the first time when he won the 2004 USCF Championship at age 16. He has some excuse to be somewhat arrogant (even if he is not), what's yours?|
|Jul-25-11|| ||tamar: Thoughts flitting through Hikaru's mind...
1 How can I lose to this idiot?
2 I used up all my negative wisecracks on Twitter yesterday. Have to draw.
|Jul-25-11|| ||DrMAL: tamar: LMAO, i think that first one was taken ;-)|
|Jul-25-11|| ||miamihurricane: In positions like this Naka's opponents typically blunder from winning positions.|
|Jul-25-11|| ||lost in space: Interesting to call someone arrogant who call someone else arrogant. The is could end in a magical circle.|
I have no excuses, as always., I was only provoking without any reason to have a bit of fun...
|Jul-25-11|| ||DrMAL: lostinspace: just kinda sick of all the Naka bashing, cheers|
|Jul-25-11|| ||ajile: Black would be happy to just shuffle pieces for another 50 moves.|
|Jul-25-11|| ||kellmano: Grimmmm position for Naka. I know he's a form player, but Dortmund could turn out very ugly.|
|Jul-25-11|| ||DrMAL: with Georg Meier as an opponent, one of so many incredibly strong GMs today, i seriously doubt H-bomb has any chance in this position|
|Jul-25-11|| ||raul555: It's irrelevant the personalities of the players, the only important thing is the way they play|
|Jul-25-11|| ||tamar: You sure this is not the classic Twilight Zone episode "Five Characters in Search of An Exit"?|
|Jul-25-11|| ||miamihurricane: White has got to be very cautious in these kinds of positions. Typically exhaustion and constantly defending against a determined tactician can lead to an elementary tactical error.|
|Jul-25-11|| ||lost in space: Bashing? I like Naka and mostly also his way to play chess. He is one of the best (he simply has to focus on chess and forget the rest, if he want to be THE best).|
But in this tournament his is in trouble nearly every match, even those he was not losing.
|Jul-25-11|| ||raul555: Le Quan is going ti win. He has two pawns up|
|Jul-25-11|| ||miamihurricane: Does anyone have any ideas how white can make progress?|
|Jul-25-11|| ||kellmano: That central wall of pawns really stops Naka generating any counterplay|
|Jul-25-11|| ||chancho: These kinds of positions where you feel you should be winning, yet the other side is making it difficult to win, can make the pressure unbearable. |
I hope Meier does not blunder, but the longer it takes, the more likely it may occur.
|Jul-25-11|| ||scormus: ... the longer it takes, the more likely it may occur
I have that feeling to. I keep thinking if WQ can get to the g file .... am I being naive?|
|Jul-25-11|| ||ajile: needs to reorganize pieces somehow. But White just played another suboptimal move since now ..Rb2 and it looks like Black will get 2 minor pieces back for a rook. This would mean White would only be a pawn up.|
|Jul-25-11|| ||DrMAL: suboptimal? IDK, computers are great to check with if they can compute a very long time...but they are really not qualified to determine what is optimal and what is not.|
|Jul-25-11|| ||ajile: If you took all the pieces off and left just pawns and kings would this be a winning endgame or a draw?|
|Jul-25-11|| ||kellmano: <ajile> would depend whose move|
|Jul-25-11|| ||lost in space: Just saw that Mr. Nakamuara will be last in the tournament for the moment, if he lose his game.|
Cheers. No bashing, only telling the fact.
|Jul-25-11|| ||kellmano: Or would it. Black could win the pawn, but perhaps then get triangulated to death?|
|Jul-25-11|| ||kellmano: My last comment refers to were it black to move of course.|
