Mar-25-11  DiscoJew: Nice, what a pounding!
Naka just pounded big Kramnik!
I love the Knight sac KID's by black, to open up the King, leading to some very creative improvisations by black.

Very enjoyable KID by the American talent!

Mar-25-11  rilkefan: Does the position before 30.h4 evaluate as even?
Mar-25-11  strifeknot: This is pretty convincing revenge by Naka for getting mated earlier by Kramnik. A really impressive beating.
Mar-26-11  Gilmoy: <35..Nxe4+> leaves that sinking feeling in the gut: Now I must <think faster than Naka -->
Mar-26-11  pulsar: <rilkefan: Does the position before 30.h4 evaluate as even?> 30.h4 was a blunder. I actually analyzed this game but was too lazy to post it. The play after that was pretty forced.
Jul-05-11  James Bowman: should remove Nakamura vs Rybka or Goldsby and put this in it's stead far better play and trade mark Nakamura when he is on his game.
Jul-05-11  DrMAL: Nah, the Rybka bullet games are trippy. And from what I understand H-bomb had to take a bathroom break and secretly consult MCO during the game to squeak by AJ.
Nov-02-11  TheMacMan: THIS GAME IS INCREDIBLE!!! Bf1!!!!!!!!!!
