Apr-02-17  RookFile: That powerful knight just sat there on d4 for the longest time, radiating power.
Apr-02-17  Marmot PFL: This must have been a satisfying win for Kamsky, especially after Nakamura said that Xiong was the better player.
Apr-02-17  iking: nice win ...
Apr-04-17  jerseybob: <RookFile: That powerful knight just sat there on d4 for the longest time, radiating power.> And the reason for that? White carelessly tosses away a pawn with 18.c5?!, thinking he can recover it or get good play. Neither happens, and 18.Nd5 looks better to me.
Apr-04-17  SirRuthless: <Marmot PFL>Have you got a direct quote and not a paraphrase of that remark? Not that I'm calling you a liar or anything but...

  patzer2: Agree 18. Nd5 is better than 18. c5?!

Also, instead of the awkward looking 17. c4, I like the computer suggestion 17. Nd2 when play might go 17...Ne6 18. Ndc4 = to (0.36 @ 23 depth, Komodo 10.4)

Ndc4 = to (0.36 @ 23 depth, Komodo 10.4)> Right; after my earlier post I realized the problem wasn't just with 18.c5 but also 17.c4. Since white's a4/b5 pawns are a little weak, I think it's key to keep a knight out of c5 by maintaining pawn control of that square.

  HeMateMe: interesting game of maneuver. by move 35 only two minors and three pawns have been taken off the board. Kamsky excels here, must be his vast experience in the game.
Apr-05-17  jerseybob: <HeMateMe:...by move 35 only two minors and three pawns have been taken off the board.> And two of those pawns were white pawns, i.e. white's a solid pawn down. Kamsky does a nice job of bringing home the point, but by this time white's lost.
Apr-05-17  Marmot PFL: <SirRuthless> Check out the Nakamura interview on the day he drew Xiong if you can access past broadcasts (think they are on youtube)
Apr-05-17  SirRuthless: I asked for a direct quote. You made a claim and you need to furnish the quote, not tell me to do your work for you. Bold claims and all that jazz...
