  tpstar: 30. hxg6!!

If 30 fxg3 31. gxf7+ Kh8 32. fxe8=Q+ Qxe8 33. Rf8+ Qxf8 34. Bxf8 and White is up a Bishop for the endgame.

Apr-20-20  MordimerChess: Beautiful, offensive game played by Naka ended with impressive queen sacrifice. Although not accepted by Magnus but it was enough to deliver checkmate! Wow!

My video analysis:

Enjoy! It's really beautiful game!

Apr-21-20  Viking707: Nakamura doesn't often win against Carlson, but his ultra aggressiveness really paid off in this rapid match.
Apr-29-20  SirChrislov: 35.Rf3 hello doomsday!

35...e4 sure, shoosh the supervillain to its optimal square why don't you.
