|Feb-26-12|| ||timhortons: A fan post at GM Nakamura website,i couldnt disagree that nakas fan are mostly ICC and playchess.com blitz player, as these people saw how he beat everyone at icc, some top 5 player even decided to delete thier account at icc and cursed icc blitz forever to erase the stigma of humiliation they got at the hands of naka.|
BTW, Italian chess championship website must be written in italian with no english translation available for iinternational fan.

<Happy New Year Naka! I wish you lots of success in 2012. I’ve been following you for years, since ICC, and then when you became a super GM! I cannot be happier for you seeing you in the world elite, and performing well. I never doubted the inmense talent you have, even when people were saying that you were just “good at blitz”, I knew that one day you would be in the top 10, and I was right! Now you have demonstrated the incredible talent you have on board, improving day by day, and impressing everyone. Beating the world champion was just a small step. I hope your next step will include crushing Magnus Carlsen convincingly and building your path to the top 4 and try to become a World Champion! Kind Regards, a fan forever>

Thanks. I think the Naka page would be a more natural place for such info though.
|Feb-26-12|| ||timhortons: <rilkefan>
there is ongoing discussion thats running for month now at naka page, beside if you post it there, new topic will just cover it right away, nakas pulpit is a better place to paste it at CG.
i prefer to kibitz at nakas pulpit.
|Feb-26-12|| ||rilkefan: On-topic discussion at Naka's page might drive out off-topic discussion, to everyone's benefit...|
|Feb-26-12|| ||timhortons: <rilkefan? i know you got good intention.|
|Mar-14-12|| ||soberknight: Haha this is a hilarious game!|
|Jun-07-12|| ||ChessMystery: I hate Nakamuras Style, it's nasty, but this game is funny|
|Oct-11-12|| ||kcchesschamp: like hell.... like hell....|
|Oct-28-12|| ||Corry: Best Game ever seen|
|Oct-28-12|| ||andrewjsacks: Reminiscent of the game Lasker-Lasker, Baden Baden, 1919.|
|Oct-28-12|| ||andrewjsacks: But I think Lasker varied on the 208th move...
Or was it Lasker that varied?
I don't recall.
|Jan-08-13|| ||RAlehin: I think I found a mistake on move 251!|
|Jan-08-13|| ||RAlehin: But seriously, this beats the previous "longest game ever" by 2 moves:
|Feb-28-13|| ||kingscrusher: Interesting - 50 move draw rule bug exploited|
|Feb-28-13|| ||paulalbert: <kingcrusher>
I was intrigued by your comment on the 50 move rule. I think there was a piece capture or pawn advance at the necessary and appropriate time throughout all phases of the game, and the computer rigorously avoids any 3 position repetition. Certainly 50 move issue no problem in the last phase of the game, 233... e1=B would have made move 283 end of 50 move line and Hikaru pulled off the mate before the limit.
Enjoy your videos!
|Feb-28-13|| ||paulalbert: Just noticed Hikaru gave up a B on 237 so 287 actually the limit.|
|Mar-03-13|| ||kingscrusher: Move 174 - c4 - I thought this may be an inferior move designed to avoid the 50 move draw rule|
|Mar-03-13|| ||AylerKupp: <kingscrusher> I agree. I came to a similar conclusion after the following game Aylerkupp / Rybka vs Kutztown46 / Stockfish, 2011, when Rybka 4.1 played 94.b4 in order to, I believe, avoid a draw by the 50-move rule. Rybka's eval of the position after Stockfish's 90...Rc8 was [+0.65] and after 94.b4 it was [+0.16], still better than the [0.00] that it would have evaluated the draw.|
There is an analysis of this game by GM Gserper in http://www.chess.com/article/view/c... that I just came across. He makes the same point about Rybka apparently going out of its way to avoid a draw by the 50-move rule.
So apparently this bug is still in the latest version of Rybka. I wonder if Stockfish (or Stockfish's developers) knew about it. :-) Vasich Rajlich, take note!
|Mar-04-13|| ||paulalbert: <kingcrusher> and <AylerKupp> Thanks for the clarification! Since I don't play against these machines, I thought you meant the bug was failure by the machine to count the 50 moves and claim a draw rather than making an inferior move to avoid it. I suppose at 174 c4 the machine possibly still gave itself a positive evaluation because of the material plus, so avoiding the 50 move rule by an inferior move might be a rational programming approach in order to still try for a win, but the evaluation routine must fail to see the long term consequences of turning a totally closed position into an open one.|
|Mar-31-13|| ||perfidious: Classic stuff.|
|Mar-31-13|| ||OhioChessFan: It's nice to see an engine look like a total idiot.|
|Apr-08-13|| ||kingscrusher: I have video annotated this game here :
