Apr-03-06  Whitehat1963: What's the finish?
Apr-03-06  Averageguy: After white plays Bh3 black will be forced to play ...Bc8 and ...Re7 and black has almost no moves. But maybe resignation was a little early.
Jul-27-07  ChessDude33: don't forget black is down a pawn with an inferior position.
Jul-27-07  Atking: <ChessDude33: don't forget black is down a pawn with an inferior position.> and e5 with Ne4~Nf6 is so strong...
Mar-12-08  YoungEd: I actually like the way that Black started here; 1...d6 and the K-side fianchetto fight for the e5 square nicely. But I think the time he lost with the rook shuffling did him in.
Nov-20-10  splatty: Lol I think they got the wrong player; I don't think Hikaru's brother Asuka was playing in this tournament (grade 2155).
Nov-20-10  anandrulez: Under players resining at this position ? Thats incredible understanding of the game .

  FSR: <splatty> Why not? It's the world under-10 championship, and Asuka Nakamura had won the U.S. 4th Grade Championship with a perfect score. Read his biography on this site.

  Nf3em: probably too early a resignation but what can Black do with that annoying pin on the d7-Knight? Black will be passive for the rest of the game as there are still resources to attack the d7-Knight (Bh3 and eventual Ne4 then Nf6 - of course after preparatory f4 & e5-push); while doing that, White is also on the process of build-up a local superiority on the kingside -- soon an attack ... simply helpless & no counterplay, Black opted to resign ;-)
Jan-24-17  Cheapo by the Dozen: Stamina can be an issue for young players.

Tournament Director Isaac Kashdan once frowned at me for a short grandmaster draw in the California Junior championship. But I also played a marathon game in the same tournament fueled by thoughtfully provided chocolate snacks, and eventually won the U14 prize (at age 11).

And this was within driving distance of my home, not at a tournament that required an international flight to attend.

Maybe Nakamura sensed he needed to pace himself.
