|May-17-12|| ||talriga25: so I think black's brave c5 is the novelty of the game..i said before..naka is something going too much for nothing!!!|
|May-17-12|| ||RookFile: I guess that rumors of black being in a losing ending were exaggerated.|
|May-17-12|| ||kb2ct: |
Likely fortress draw.
|May-17-12|| ||twinlark: <solskytz: If I was Rybka, I would still say like ( 1.43) - come on, two pawns up! And a bishop against a knight!>|
It's one of those situations where the engine's evaluations are wrong. I'm willing to be that the top three lines are all evaluated at 1.43. A flatline like that usually indicates a draw.
More specifically, the Bishop has no advantage of the Knight in this position, and Black has all the possible breakthrough points completely covered. If there was any possibility of a breakthrough, Naka would be going for it.
|May-17-12|| ||talriga25: Yes, yes, yes...Gata is pushing his pawn:))))|
|May-17-12|| ||talriga25: No Naka..no...the answer is just no..hahahaha|
|May-17-12|| ||hoodrobin: Kasparov --- trying to help gelfanand or the opposite?|
|May-17-12|| ||hoodrobin: BTW I believe this game said something about chess and human nature... in a way.|
|May-17-12|| ||talriga25: I think Naka was just afraid of e4 pushing...This man can never and ever be a champion...|

When I read comments like this I just throw my head back and laugh. Where do all of these people come from? Don't they have anything to do besides putting down top players? Of course if they could really play themselves they might have a little understanding and wouldn't be posting the sophomoric crap that shows up day after day.
|May-17-12|| ||Shams: If there's one thing the World Champions have in common, it's a love of the reckless central pawn thrust.|

Believe me..I am more than you if it is about chess....but dont matters..dont believe..
If you read..before nearly 50 moves to the end I said it was a draw if it is not e4 push!!!me and some kibitzer wait for it..
But if Naka loves waiting blunders moves I mean that habit just can't stand champion..do you really believe Naka will ever be???
|May-17-12|| ||OhioChessFan: There's two kinds of people in the world: Those who love the reckless central pawn thrust, and those who don't.|
|May-17-12|| ||karnak64: <OCF>: Really, there's two kinds of people in the world: those who divide the world into two kinds of people, and those who don't. :)|
|May-17-12|| ||talriga25: <karnak>:)well said..|
|May-17-12|| ||Shams: As far as I can see, e2-e4 was only "on" in this game for one move, that being White's first.|
|May-18-12|| ||RookFile: Black wisely waited until white castled queenside, then followed suit.|
|May-18-12|| ||Rook e2: A pity Nakamura didn't win.. Seems like black reached his goal, to draw.|
|May-19-12|| ||zakkzheng: White is two pawns up in the endgame. Why didn't he try to break through with his king on c3 and smash with a break b4?|
|May-19-12|| ||Atking: Could Lenderman's drawisch philosophy be realize if he keeps moving piece without exchange to the move 101? |
My impression is 105.Kh4 hxg 106.Kxg4 Nh6+ 107.Kh5 ~ 108.Kg6 was a better try. I know Q+N works better than Q+B but here d5 is weak and the diagonal a8-h1 is wonderful.
|May-19-12|| ||Atking: I'm sorry for Lenderman I didn't notice that Shulman did even better with 10 draws in 11 games (Lenderman only 8).|
|Jun-02-12|| ||whiteshark: <ajile: <RookFile:> Yes but then White has a weak backward e pawn forever.>|
<Forever> is a mighty long time. ;)
|Aug-25-12|| ||Dutchbagel: Lenderman reviewed this game on a video of his on chess.com, and he said after nakamura let his pawn break through he was in a winning position, then nakamura probably realized that and offered the draw.|
