Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-14-04  ConLaMismaMano: 18.f4! Subtle move; Since Lesiege didn't castle, Nakamura decided to open the "e" file and throw a direct attack to the enemy King.

24.Rxe5+! Great move too.

Dec-08-04  iron maiden: Probably Nakamura's most attractive game so far.
Apr-12-08  ToTheDeath: Really powerful king hunt. It was all sound and virtually all forced.
Apr-12-08  Granny O Doul: It doesn't matter, but...I like 33 Nf3 instead, idea Rg3+
Apr-12-08  ToTheDeath: 33.Nf3? Qe2! when there is no mate and 34. Rg3+ simply fails to fxg3 CHECK.
Apr-13-08  Granny O Doul: Pretty sneaky, sis.
Jul-02-09  WhiteRook48: 34...f3+ 35 Kb1 f2 36 Qg2+
