|Nov-15-10|| ||frogbert: ah, ok! i simply misunderstood what you were saying, then.|
|Nov-15-10|| ||BobCrisp: <<A game of woefully poor quality.>|
That's a bit harsh.
<Grischuk took great risks to play for a win, groundlessly sacrificing the b3-pawn and ending up in a lost position.>
Pawn-sac, my arse!
Thanks for the heads-up on the pics of <Grischuk>'s little girl. You can see she's the apple of his eye.
|Nov-15-10|| ||Ulhumbrus: After 33...Qc3 attacking the e3 pawn a second time, both of White's Rooks are overworked. The Rook on b1 cannot come to e1 to defend the e3 pawn if it has to defend the b3 pawn, and the Rook on f1 cannot come to e1 to defend the e3 pawn as it has to defend the N on f3. It is at this point that White's pawns start to fall, beginning with the b3 pawn.|
|Nov-16-10|| ||HeMateMe: I was just looking at this for the first time. Is 84...Q-e1 a forced win for black?|
|Nov-16-10|| ||JohnBoy: <cancho: Naka after realizing that he blew the game...> - what a stupid comment! Naka handled it quite well after realizing he'd blown the game. Haven't you ever worked hard on a tough win for a long time only to err when completion of the task was near at hand? I have - and it is very disconcerting.|
|Nov-16-10|| ||chancho: <JohnBoy: I have - and it is very disconcerting.> |
So you reacted just like Naka :-)
Dude, get yourself a sense of humor...
|Nov-16-10|| ||soldal: Here's Macauley Peterson's footage of the last five minutes, starting with Naka's blunder and Grischuk's repeated glances at him before making his move:|
|Nov-16-10|| ||BobCrisp: At least he wore a decent jacket for the game. My words obviously had the desired effect.|
|Nov-16-10|| ||JohnBoy: <chancho: So you reacted just like Naka :-) > - hardly. I just find your insipid comments exactly that.|
|Nov-16-10|| ||chancho: <JohnBoy> Ooooh, that hurts. :-)|
|Nov-16-10|| ||blueofnoon: Dude, show respect to chancho... He has kibitzed on chessgames.com over 20,000 times according to his profile... which is approximately same as the number of blitz games played by Nakamura on the ICC.|
chancho on chessgames.com is what Nakamura is on the ICC. his kibitz rating I would imagine is over 3,000.
Of course, there is a life outside of chessgames.com, but that's another story.
|Nov-16-10|| ||chancho: <blueofnoon>
Well, yes, it is a lot of comments for 5 and a half years, but I still find time for other things. Thanks for your concern. :-)
There are people with far less comments who may or may not be miserable.
It is what is.
|Nov-16-10|| ||Jim Bartle: That last video posted by soldal shows more than the official video. Nakamura really looks like he'd like to find a window to jump out of. I guess most of us have known the same feeling, for lower stakes.|
|Nov-16-10|| ||chancho: <Naka> made a mistake, it happens.
It's happened to me, and it will continue to happen to anyone playing Chess.
I remember people overjoyed after Kramnik got mated in one move when he played Deep Fritz.|
|Nov-16-10|| ||BobCrisp: Yes, it shows windows. Frankly, I'm suprised given the potential for signalling from adjacent buildings that drapes or blinds weren't employed.|
|Nov-17-10|| ||ounos: Hardly believable, but Naka actually tried and almost played 87. ...h5+. He rightfully hated himself at that moment.|
|Nov-17-10|| ||chancho: I wonder why Naka did not play 84...Qf1+.
If Grischuk plays 85.Kg4?? then it's mate in one, so 85.Kh2 hxg3+ 86.Kxg3 Qe1+ Guarding the e pawn and with two pawns to White's none, Naka is still winning.
|Nov-17-10|| ||chancho: I just noticed at the bottom of this page that 84...Qe1 is mentioned.
Definitely looks stronger...|
|Nov-17-10|| ||Kazzak: Thanks for posting Macauley's video of that. Watching Grischuk from that angle is maybe even funnier than from the official cam.
Had my start-up laugh of the day now.|
|Nov-17-10|| ||JohnBoy: <chancho... has kibitzed on chessgames.com over 20,000 times>|
logorrhea: incessant or compulsive talkativeness; wearisome volubility
|Nov-17-10|| ||chancho: <JohnBoy> You're making a mountain out of a molehill.
It was just a youtube video. Why so sensitive?|
|Nov-18-10|| ||ajile: Kudos for Naka for playing something different than the same old stale 5 openings.|
|Nov-19-10|| ||Jim Bartle: <extremepleasure2: It is mamedyarov who declines to play with Nakamura. But here there's no escape. They will meet over the board and Mamedyarov will clean the floors with Naka's face.|
extremepleasure2: I hope Naka participates this blitz tournament as well and people realize how big loser he really is.
extremepleasure2: I feel that in this blitz tournament Naka will be bulldozed by his opponents. He completely used up all of his charisma which ICC created for him giving him free pass to cheat on ICC.>
And the final score is...Nakamura 2 Mamedyarov 0
Any comment, extremepleasure2?
|Nov-19-10|| ||Kazzak: As I have extremepleasure2 on ignore, I can't take part of his sweet little nothings - but thanks for keeping me updates through a quote.|
Guess he got something to think about.
On the other hand - we now have a official definition of "crush like a baby."
That's when you lose 0.5-1.5 - crusher/crushee.
|Jun-09-12|| ||dumbgai: Haha, I LOVE the ending to this game!|
