Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-21-20  fisayo123: I honestly think this is one of Nakamura's best ever games, especially considering the opposition.
Aug-22-20  Ulhumbrus: After 12...Nf8 Nakamura would like to play his knight to f5 but the black queen prevents Nh4. How does Nakamura arrange the manoeuvre, then? His answer is to advance the h pawn to h4. If Black continues to keep his queen on d8 the further pawn advances h5 and g5 may follow and now Nh4 becomes possible.
Aug-22-20  Viking707: Carlsen proved once again that whether it's classical, rapid or blitz chess, he is the champion, but Nakamura acquitted himself very well, and lost by the narrowest of margins to MC..
