  transpose: Nakamura is playing too cavalierly for my taste in this Olympiad so far. I hope he settles down and plays more solidly now that he will likely face super-GMs from this point. He was fortunate to draw this game, IMO.

  plang: Nakamura must have played well to draw
Sep-04-16  SirRuthless: 2.5/3 isn't so bad in terms of results. I don't think we will be seeing 5...a5?! again in this line. IN severe time trouble white did miss some kills both approaching move 40 and near the end of the game when he found himself in zeitnot again.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: According to The Computer, if white had played 64 f5 instead of 64 c7, he would have won a piece and probably the game. It is (relatively) easy to see in retrospect that clearing the f4 square would have provided the king with an escape hatch and prevented Nakamura's swindle.

  saffuna: I hold the patent on moves like 64. c7. Maybe I should sue Mareco.
Sep-05-16  dehanne: Sauron Mareco.
