|Oct-01-11|| ||haydn20: White threatens RxN|
|Oct-01-11|| ||Ulhumbrus: One way for Black to lose quickly is 55 Re7+ Kc8 56 Rc6|
|Oct-01-11|| ||haydn20: 55 Rg7+ was even deadlier.|
|Oct-01-11|| ||Gordon1306: 55. ... Re7 is forced.|
|Oct-01-11|| ||technical draw: Naka wins!!!|
|Oct-01-11|| ||kdogphs: GAME OVER!!!|
|Oct-01-11|| ||jmboutiere: Valejo resigned|
|Oct-01-11|| ||technical draw: I think Paco timed out...|
|Oct-01-11|| ||Gordon1306: Good game, and exciting to watch. Goodnite all.|
|Oct-01-11|| ||tpstar: Looks like only the 2800 club get a personalized Dancing Rook. =)|
Vallejo-Pons put up a good fight but Nakamura brought it home.
See you in Bilbao!
|Oct-01-11|| ||Marmot PFL: Naka the only unbeaten player, but the format rewards wins|
|Oct-01-11|| ||Peligroso Patzer: <technical draw: Vallejo has to be the slowest player in the world....>|
Actually, I think Grischuk is the slowest player in the world ... and the fastest.
|Oct-01-11|| ||Domdaniel: Quite a rollercoaster, this.
If they ever remake the early Bond movies, Naka would be a great Oddjob. Not so much for ethnic reasons, but because he makes lethal moves very fast.
He even has an <odd job>. Think of the publicity.
|Oct-01-11|| ||Shams: <Dom> And who will you cast for P.G. in that "Goldfinger" remake, hmm?|
|Oct-01-11|| ||laskerian: <Actually, I think Grischuk is the slowest player in the world ... and the fastest>
That was a very accurate observation.|
|Oct-01-11|| ||Jambow: Interesting so Vallejo gives a bishop away on move 21 and Nakamura gives him back a knight on move 34 just to keep it sporting??? I came into the game on move 41 and missed the strangeness. Nice finish by Nakamura but I wouldn't have felt so obligated to return the favor.|
|Oct-01-11|| ||Jambow: On another note it seems the b file always plays a prominent role in all of FVP's games, maybe he just had to have it open???|
|Oct-02-11|| ||DrMAL: Fabulous game by Naka showing maturity. I like how he opens quietly and waits to castle long, disposing of B on g2, before direct K-side attack. His opponent, on the other hand, rushed in prematurely with 20.a4?! and the moves tha followed, interesting sac but tactically flawed as Naka calmly showed. After 23...Rb4?! (instead of cxd4) Naka is nearly winning, I hope he continues to demonstrate this wise principle that Magnus learned from Kasparov: Don't rush! His play did not seem as accurate as usual with moves like 24.Qd3 (instead of dxc4!) or 26.Nxa7 (instead of Nxd4!) I think he is still beating himself up a bit and not fully confident/focused. On the other hand, moves like 42.Qh3! and 43.Rb6! show his usual genius, beautiful win.|
|Oct-02-11|| ||Nilsson: 29...Qb7! is much better.
|Oct-02-11|| ||Jambow: I spent a little more time looking at 34 Nxf5 and Nakamura did gain two important pawns and a mate threat. Since he was up a piece he didn't really just give away material as I indicated. |
Those pawns freed his own passers so I'm not sure if there was a better move, but if you see a winning continuation then why look further.
