Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-20-05  Knight13: Nakamura was a pawn down in the beginning but had some backup and won the pawn back with connected-passed pawns on the queen side. Good play.

Jul-20-05  iron maiden: 9. Qe2, already semi-famous thanks to Morozevich vs E Alekseev, 2004, got Naka into some trouble early on, yet once again his endgame technique saved the day.
Jul-20-05  beenthere240: It looks like black's a pawn and d pawn were both untenable, and blac k just lost the way in the 30s (moves).
Jul-21-05  iron maiden: Against a better technical player this probably would have been 0-1.
