|May-18-12|| ||PeterFletcher: Naka is America's best chance at getting a World Champion in the next 6 years. He's a calculator extraordinaire. But he needs to understand openings and positions better than Magnus and the other top players.|
Fingers crossed for American chess!
Yes, I'll put up with Naka's ego, if he can bring the U.S. a World Championship! (LOL)
|May-18-12|| ||BlackSheep: So wheres Robson vs Shulman thats live right now too .|
|May-18-12|| ||Eisenheim: great finish here.|
|May-18-12|| ||Jambow: Nice win with the black pieces against a very well playing Kamsky. This is one of the deeper and more perplexing games from Nakamura in a while I will have to play over it in depth to understand it better. Lot better than the WC match imho.|
|May-18-12|| ||izimbra: Kamsky shouldn't have wasted so much time early on...but Naka deserves some real props here. |
After <41...Ra7> neither Kamsky nor the comps understood the a-pawn promotion was inevitable - or at least unstoppable without loss of material.
|May-18-12|| ||ajile: I was surprised Kamsky opened with 1.e4 actually. Why not just play something ultra solid and more strategic? |
|May-18-12|| ||mrbasso: How would you know what Kamsky understood? There is no way out at this point. 36.f3 was a mistake. I don't see how black can win after 36.Nc5.|
|May-18-12|| ||stunningmove: GOTD with title Nak 'em out|
|May-18-12|| ||AVRO38: Is there a petition I can sign to have Nakamura automatically seeded into the next World Championship match?|
|May-18-12|| ||LIFE Master AJ: WOW!!!! I am impressed. Kamsky destroyed Seirawan ... but (today) Nakamura wins ... WITH THE BLACK PIECES!!!??!?|
What can I say, but GO NAKAMURA!!!!!
I am reminded of a line from Star Wars, when Darth Vader says: "Impressive, most impressive!"
|May-18-12|| ||izimbra: <mrbasso>, <37.Nc5 Rd2+ 38.Kh3 gxh5> is in the drawing range, while <37.Rc1> was a mistake and <38.Rc7> is an ill-conceived misadventure for white. <38.h6> was apparently white's last barely drawing move...so white's "plan" to sacrifice b4 was no good.|
So you correct I can't dispute that Kamsky, perhaps, saw the light between moves 38 and 40.
|May-18-12|| ||RookFile: Still some more chess to be played. Should be exciting!|
|May-19-12|| ||FSR: Meet Me in St. Louis.|
|May-19-12|| ||rilkefan: You've Come a Long Way in St. Louis.|
|May-19-12|| ||scormus: Great fighting chess by both players. When I was following it I thought Gata missed awin, 43 d6 Bxf7 44 dxf7 Ra8 45 Nd6 a5 46 c8=Q Rxc8 47 Nxc8 a4. But although WN can stop the a-pawn from Qing B still wins the K+p ending.|
Gata was in time trouble from 30 to 40
|May-19-12|| ||whiteshark: Bad decisions make good stories.|
|May-19-12|| ||stunningmove: GOTD potential. Maybe right title is
Nak out blow?
|May-19-12|| ||PeterFletcher: 43.d6 Bb6 44.Re7 a5 Black wins.|
|May-19-12|| ||diceman: <boz: This is turning into one of the greatest US championships of all time.>|
You mean one Fischer was in?
His first as a boy or the 11-0 are good starting points.
|May-19-12|| ||zakkzheng: Why couldn't kamsky play d7 Rxb7 d8Q Bxd8 and Rxb7?|
|May-19-12|| ||TheStormofWar: I was reading through the Kibitz of this game. On one level, I understand why some folks like GM Pogonina and others see the beauty of the WCC vs. the US Championships. The WCC has some very precise play and there is beauty in that. That said, folks who like games by players like Capablanca, Morphy, Lasker, Reti, etc. have a certain romanticism about chess. Honestly, I prefer the latter. This game was great because it was a fight. Fantastic win by Naka.|
|May-19-12|| ||PinnedPiece: GOTD Titles:
"Hi Calling, Sky Falling!"
"The Naka'd A p"
|May-21-12|| ||serenpidity.ejd: I will give Kamsky a score of perfect 10 for AGGRESSION.|
|May-23-12|| ||messachess: This was a great fighting game.|
