  Reisswolf: Is there a quick end that I am missing? I imagine Black wants to play 29..Bh4 and capture the f2 pawn. Did Nakamura just want to avoid slow torture here?

29. Qf3 Bh4 30. Be2 Re6 31. g5 Bxg5 32. Bc4 [-0.93/22]

"He who analyzes blitz games is stupid."

<Reisswolf> After 28. g4 Bf6 Nakamura had a scowl and looked very frustrated, perhaps missing Black's Re7 covering f7, but also the 29. Qf3 Bh4 30. Be2 defense, so he resigned in disgust.

Black's opening play was smooth and seemingly effortless.
