May-17-10  kevingong: Can someone explain to me why Nakamura played 29. axb6 instead of 29. Bxc5 ? Bxc5 would seem clearly better, although perhaps still drawn.
May-17-10  the nakedape: 29.axb6 BxB 30.b7 was too much to ask for.
May-18-10  Matsumoto: Nakamura. You just got to love the guy! He is probably the player over 2700 with the highest risk-loving proprensity - a title sure only Morozevich could reasonalby dispute. Who else would jump into the tactical abyss of the Vienna Gambit?! Naka, you are a real hero!

  perfidious: <kevingong> Besides the tactical justification cited by nakedape, there was a positional one: in these endings, White's a-pawn, amongst others, could prove a grave weakness if left unattended, and without creating some activity to offset his weaknesses, he could easily wind up with an inferior, passive position-definitely something to be avoided at 2700 level.
May-18-10  JonathanJ: <the nakedape> what he means is that after

29. Bxc5 bxc5
30. Ra8

white probably still has winning chances.

Oct-27-10  Roger Krueger: He played it again (and won) against Sophie Milliet: Nakamura vs S Milliet, 2010 although I'm not sure he was risking much playing 25/10 rapid against an IM (Well, she was playing rapid, he was playing voluntary blitz :) Deviation was 10 ... Bxf3.
