  Gilmoy: With the rooks at e1/h1, an <1.e4 4.h4> opening was too inviting. Black's <5..b5 9..Nb6> seemed a better way to grab space, leveraging the Qb1/Qb8.

<8.f4> must be Naka thinking <it's only rapid>: he cedes a long-term hole at g3. <13.d5> feels good for a moment, but oddly devalues the Bg2 fianchetto by being its own worst blockader. After <19.Nf1 Bg4>:

<Both> Black bishops dogpile the same theme: they sit in some hole that opened up, and <annoy>. Naka surely knew that <8.f4> was hanging h4, yet he just never found any counterplay.

<32.Qf5> must be too late to get into the game. Black's Q already achieved much more.
