|Oct-05-16|| ||Marmot PFL: Nakamura used to play the King's Indian, and probably wished he was playing black here.
White's QN stays home until move 24 - that can't be good.|
|Oct-05-16|| ||MissScarlett: <Naka-Bok-oh-glory>|
|Oct-05-16|| ||Marmot PFL: 20...Nfg4! was a good sacrifice. I didn't see all the video analysis but 21 fg4 hg4 looks very tough for white to defend.|
Bok said later that Naka told him he should play 22 Nb1-c3 but still liked black. 22 Nf6+? was a mistake - 24 Bxf6 Nf2# and 24 Qe1 Re8 are both bad for white and giving up the bishop was also hopeless.
|Oct-05-16|| ||Xeroxx: Benjamin Bok, wow. Great game, man.|
|Oct-05-16|| ||WorstPlayerEver: Revanche of the Bokster|
|Oct-05-16|| ||HeMateMe: wild game. Congrats to Bok.|
|Oct-05-16|| ||dumbgai: Naka got totally outplayed by Bok, straight up. Masterful play by black.|
|Oct-05-16|| ||perfidious: It would seem that in this game Naka was served a rather large helping of his speciality: killtown to go.|
|Oct-05-16|| ||transpose: <perfidious> is correct. When I first saw this game, I was certain Nakamura was black, and so I was confused as I knew Nakamura had lost. It took me a moment to realize Nakamura was white, and got a dose of his own medicine. Congrats to Bok for playing a magnificent attack.|
|Oct-06-16|| ||Pulo y Gata: What a win, against the world's foremost KID practitioner today no less. This is the type of win that reminds us why we play the King's Indian. Bravo!|
|Oct-06-16|| ||whiteshark: CB round report w/ games annotated (+tests): http://en.chessbase.com/post/isle-o...|
|Oct-06-16|| ||wordfunph: The article, however, says this was not a King's Indian but a Benoni.|
Must be why Nakamura lost his way.
|Oct-06-16|| ||Pulo y Gata: It looks,truly, like the son of sorrow early on. But such is truth that it transmogrifies to tantalize tellers of tales. A good win, in any case.|
|Oct-07-16|| ||patzer2: The computers indicate 16. g4 Ne5 = to (-0.47 @ 31 depth, Stockfish 160715) loses the White advantage and turns the game slightly in Black's favor. |
Instead, 16. Ne4 Qg6 17. Kh1 = (0.10 @ 27 depth, Komodo 8) appears to give White even or better chances.
|Oct-08-16|| ||Chesstorian72: Garbagemura needs to quit already, he gets destroyed by an old bum Kasparov then he draws against a patzer at the Olympiad and now he gets his butt kicked by some nobody bum Gm, what an embarrassment to chess.|
|Oct-09-16|| ||thegoodanarchist: Why not 33.Rxh4 Bd4+ 34. Rxd4?|
|Oct-09-16|| ||scormus: I confess to being confused as I played through. I hadnt checked the result and I imagined Naka was going to win, but at about move 16 I was thinking "he's sure goes about it in a funny way .... but that's Naka for you." |
The more it went on the less convincing his gme looked.
<patzer2 16 g4> I thought it looked rather dubiuos at the time, especially with Ne4 looking the natural move.
Later <22 Nf6+?> is even worse. The Ne4 was W's most active piece, it couldnt be attacked by a pawn so why not support it with Nbc3 and connect the Rs as well? Insted he gives it up for modest material gain
|Oct-09-16|| ||7he5haman: <<thegoodanarchist>> 33.Rxh4 Nxh4 34.Rg5+ Bg7 35.Kh2 Rf8 36.Kh3 Nf5 and Black is a piece up|
|Oct-09-16|| ||goodevans: <MissScarlett: <Naka-Bok-oh-glory>>|
So much better than the chosen pun!
|Oct-09-16|| ||WorstPlayerEver: If one plays 3. f3 what *ambitions* should one have to win the game? Like: "I really couldn't find a lazier move to secure the draw."|
|Oct-09-16|| ||savagerules: 3 f3 is to avoid the regular Gruenfeld and try to get a Saemish King's Indian. I wonder if Black thought about 4...Nxe4!? two pawns for the piece and White's king in the open.|
|Oct-09-16|| ||MissScarlett: <So much better than the chosen pun!>|
Yes, that would've been the cherry on top. This problem with this site is i) it's too American, and ii)there are too many foreigners.
|Oct-09-16|| ||morphynoman2: 16. g4? is unsound and nonsense.|
|Oct-09-16|| ||not not: yeah 16. Ne4 gains an extra move by attacking black queen|
16. g4 just weakens king's shelter; move in a spirit of Alekhine: super-aggressive, bullying attitude yet deeply flawed
"it's too American, and there are too many foreigners"
sounds like a definition of planet Earth - out of Texas' school handbook
|Oct-09-16|| ||perfidious: <not not> What is worse is that the <Divine Miss S> is not even American: he is simply a bigot who would be rid of all those who are not like himself.|
