|Apr-09-15|| ||SirRuthless: The tactical flourish resulted from a positional instability inherent in this structure. When you have to win with black, you make the position unstable and then outplay your opponent in the complications.|

I see what you are saying ,but the lines resulting from Qh6 are in no way non concrete and positional. Naka is beating most of his opponents because, frankly, they aren't in his league tactically.
|Apr-09-15|| ||Absentee: I just tuned in and - what a massacre.|
|Apr-09-15|| ||thegoodanarchist: Even if White survives the attack he is down two pawns so the endgame would be hopeless|
|Apr-09-15|| ||AdolfoAugusto: From a good/better position to a mating attack/minus 2 pawns in just a few moves... I thought it just happened in my games...|
|Apr-09-15|| ||scormus: and W only gets 1 spite check :(|
|Apr-09-15|| ||Marmot PFL: An experience for white to learn from - Yasser Seirawan|
|Apr-09-15|| ||boz: Naka appears to have played the precise computer variation outlined by Ashley about a half-hour ago.|
Speaking of Ashley, I don't know how he does it. An inexhaustible store of energetic outbursts.
|Apr-09-15|| ||keypusher: What a game! Congrats to Nakamura! The funny thing is, 32.Qg5+ actually accelerated White getting mated according to the engines. Of course it was completely hopeless at that point anyway.|
|Apr-09-15|| ||Penguincw: Even if Troff wanted to try to save the position, he simply doesn't have enough (much) time.|
With this win, Nakamura temporarily has a one point lead in the tournament; Robson is currently slightly inferor against Shankland.
|Apr-09-15|| ||cornflake: He's not No 3. on the FIDE list for nothing.|
|Apr-09-15|| ||boz: Naka not impressed with his own play. Hard on himself, but that's alright.|
|Apr-09-15|| ||cornflake: < boz: Naka not impressed with his own play. Hard on himself, but that's alright.>|
Well I'm impressed with his play (tactically at least).
|Apr-09-15|| ||boz: Yes, his best game here so far imho.|
|Apr-09-15|| ||Marmot PFL: Naka says he sees better moves right after he makes a move. But the move played usually seems better than the one he suggests. maybe the non-verbal, intuitive part of the brain (fast thinking) plays the moves and then the slower, verbal part (slow thinking) criticizes them.|
|Apr-09-15|| ||chancho: Naka admitted that if he had played Carlsen or Aronian like he did in this game, he would have lost.|
|Apr-09-15|| ||Marmot PFL: Sure Carlsen would improve on Troff's moves, and almost as important play much faster, but even he is human.|
|Apr-09-15|| ||Marmot PFL: Anyway So is just a piece down and Robson isn't winning so it is a good day so far for Naka.|
|Apr-09-15|| ||Penguincw: < Penguincw: Even if Troff wanted to try to save the position, he simply doesn't have enough (much) time. >|
Correction to my own post. I didn't realize that the position is a mate in 1, so obviously there is no "save".
|Apr-09-15|| ||Sally Simpson: Wonderful. Black' position was over-flowing with some very cute lines.|
Cannot wait to get a board to see if my Rook sac idea works. Instead of Rxe4 I was wanting to play Rae8. (get all the men involved) and if Nf3 which traps the Black Queen then Rf5 Black cannot take it exf5 as Ng4 is mate.
Trying to work through the non-tasking variations in my mind. Hitting some sly tricks and traps. Also getting murky with no diagram to look at.
(sorry no diagram till they post the game proper and b8 works)
Some lad said:
"When you have to win with black, you make the position unstable and then outplay your opponent in the complications."
Making a position unstable (with either colour) to outplay your opponent in the complications is a skill.
The two best players in the world. Nakamura and Carlsen are quite good at it.
Carlsen has more strings to his bow. Nakamura seems to think he needs complications.
And why not, if that is how he enjoys playing and it does bring results.
One day someone will do Nakamura's Best Games. They will have a difficult job in deciding what games to leave out.
|Apr-09-15|| ||latvalatvian: I can tell nAKAMURA WAS PLAying according to the basic principles laid down by Steinitz--probably went though some of his games before this game.|
|Apr-09-15|| ||BOSTER: I guess white should be awarded for lesson
< HOW DO NOT PLAY CHESS>.
|Apr-10-15|| ||RookFile: I have to admit that Qh5 and Qh1 and whatever else white was thinking was unusual to see in a Benoni.|
|Apr-10-15|| ||patzer2: A good weekend puzzle candidate would be 26...Nxf2!! .|
The combination was set up by 24. Qd3? (better was 24. Rb3! ) 24...Qh61 .
One side variation of note in Nakamura's demolition combination (i.e. 26...Nxf2!!) is if 30. Kf3 then 30...Qxg3+! 31. Kxe4? Re8#.
