  thegoodanarchist: Black has a 5-pawn advantage. Time to resign for White
May-16-12  PinnedPiece: They played three moves while I was typing about f5.

Including a losing move for white.

May-16-12  Marmot PFL: Guess they have to interview Kamsky for a change. He is usually very good to hear analyze.

Wow, you posted twice about f5 while they were playing moves :)

  watwinc: Any ideas about why Lenderman collapsed like that?
May-16-12  Shams: Time to switch to the Nakamura game!

Yes, well, Alex thought he would show me why not f5, but unfortunately answering that question for me cost him the game.

  OhioChessFan: Someone help. Who was the GM who played an engine and had a row of Pawns across the 4th rank? I had thought Gulko, but that's not it.
May-16-12  Shams: Not to be a Wendy One-Note but that Nakamura game is in fact quite an interesting one...
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: To much for Lenderman. Well done Chumsky.
Premium Chessgames Member Thanks to everybody for stopping by today's live broadcast, and congratulations to Gata Kamsky.

Our next live event will be tomorrow morning at 7:00am USA/Eastern when we cover the Anand-Gelfand world championship match, with our special guest host Natalia Pogonina. Hope to see you then!

May-16-12  SamAtoms1980: Hey, they actually have a Kamsky rook!

That Kaidanov game really woke Kamsky up, didn't it? Nakamura better not be thinking that winning this championship will be easy...

May-16-12  Shams: <> I implore you, look at Stripunsky-Nakamura.

  Domdaniel: Good game -- just when it looked like it might be drawn, Lenderman began to go wrong, and Kamsky polished him off with brutal efficiency. Just the kind of finish that the top players are always threatening.
May-16-12  Ulhumbrus: It seems that following the removal of White's f4 pawn, the move ...Ng3! is the resource that wins a piece for Black and the game.

The move Rb6 allowed Black's rook to occupy the first rank, but using the other rook for this purpose might have allowed Black's took to occupy the second rank instead.

The conclusion of the game suggests that instead of 20 Qc7 it might have been wiser for White to march his King to the queen side.

  tpstar: Kamsky is the only player below 2800 to have his own Dancing Rook. The others are Carlsen, Anand, Kramnik and Topalov.

  Sneaky: I felt sorry for Lenderman in the post-game interview. He really was feeling hard on himself. It must be hard on the players to be interviewed immediately after games like that. We all know how emotional chess can be.
Premium Chessgames Member
  eternaloptimist: The dancing ♖ looks hilarious w/ kamsky's face on!! This game unravelled pretty quickly for lenderman. Still overall he has played well so far!
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: Such a game of tempos--black breaks through a little bit quicker on the kingside.

Young jedi Lenderman has learned that the Force is very strong with this Kamsky fellow.

May-17-12  RookFile: This is a world class effort by Kamsky.
