  offramp: Like a game from 1910. An opening like the Berlin doesn't seem right for Nakamura. It is not his idiom.
Dec-08-15  kamagong24: and the Berlin juggernaut continues!!!
Dec-09-15  Ulhumbrus: 10 h4 starts an attack in a position where White can hardly claim any advantage. The pawn becomes a target instead of a weapon and Adams ends up having to struggle to draw the game.

14...Bg4 relinquishes the bishop pair. Is there any need for that? 14...Rad8 gets the queen's rook out

Dec-09-15  starry2013: Which Anand game was Adams following?

  MissScarlett: Anand vs A Giri, 2015
Dec-10-15  starry2013: I thought he said a rapid game against Kramnik where the h pawn gets pushed. Unless I misheard.
