Aug-08-16  CountryGirl: Interesting! I like games where a player trades queen for rook and minor piece and shows that they are positionally fine. Most of us are too reluctant to let our queen go.
Aug-08-16  Robyn Hode: Nakamura said playing Topalov is like playing poker. You don't know if he's bluffing.

  Ulhumbrus: If 23...Bxe2 leads to the loss of the a6 pawn one alternative is 23...Rb6 keeping White's knight out of the squares b7 and c6

  An Englishman: Good Afternoon: Good hard-fought struggle, both players ultimately proving too good to lose. On moves 13 and 14 White had two opportunities to move the Ne5 away from the Bishop's attack (e.g., 13.Nf3 or 13.Ng4!?). In one line, White gives up castling after 13...Nfd3+; 14.Bxd3,Nxd3+; 15.Ke2. How bad would this have been for Nakamura?
