  Phony Benoni: <alexmagnus> Judging from the Game ID#s, the Nakamura game was submitted first. I can't be sure of the dates, but judging from tournament games with similar game ID#s the Nakamura game was added in December, 2007, the Bacrot game in July, 2008.

As far as I can tell, the scores are identical, which means that one of the games was submitted in error or as a joke. After all, we can't have NN playing as well as Crafty, can we?

Nakamura is known to pull stunts like this,, so I'm inclined to think the Bacrot version should be pulled. Does anybody know if he even played on ICC?

Jun-07-11  DummyPawn: Starting around move 147 it looks like Nakamura is playing a variant of Conway's Game of Life with his knights.
Jun-21-11  IRONCASTLEVINAY: I was thinking about Robert Hyat
Jun-21-11  IRONCASTLEVINAY: CRAFTY ENGINE crushed by Naka's 6 horsepower Engine.

Apr-03-12  FromMuToYou: Naka played this perfectly.

Computers sometimes don't realize how much more valuable knights are in positions like that.

Nov-02-13  chesswar1000: Funny thing is that Nakamura mated Rybka with 5 BLACK BISHOPS also...

"1. Nc6? You want to start a game with a Knight? I'll show you a Knight!"
