Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-12-04  acirce: The Scotch Gambit on this level is a rare sight.
Jul-26-07  Sleepyworker: It's not really the Scotch, it's the 2 Knight defense...I think it's more funny someone at that level messed up in the opening like that...because in my opinion 5..d5 is the best move for black. A good game by Nakamura.
Jul-26-07  unixfanatic: 30. ... Rxc7 31. Rxc7+ Re7 is Black OK? or am I missing something?

<If 18.Bxf4 Qxf4 19.Rd4 Qc7 then 20.Qe4 centralizes.>

Aug-08-08  OneArmedScissor: Why <29. ...Kf7>?
Aug-08-08  GeauxCool: <OneArmedScissor> It appears to guard against a discovery on the rook with Bb5. 2. It also appears to be a positional move that gets the king toward center.

Strange is that he pushed 30...a5, weakening b5 and forcing Rd8. If instead he played Rd8 first, then maybe the rooks would be traded off resulting in a balanced position:

The black king towards center partially compensating for white's bishop activity:

So why did he play 30...a5, if 29...Kf7 guards the rooks? Missed tactic, time trouble, I don't know.

Did you find anything better than 29...Kf7?
