Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-08-06  sharkbenjamin: this is an amazing game I am surprised that Nakamura won!
Sep-11-06  RookFile: This is a nice sharp game, showing 7. Qg4 in action!
Sep-12-06  euripides: Perhaps Black's 35th and 36th are the problem here. It looks as though Black was playing for a win and got muddled in the tactics. 35....Be5 looks solid.
Sep-12-06  euripides: Another intriguing line is 35...Rec8 36 c3 Be5 (if 36...Bxc3 37 Nb5 wins the exchange, though Black may have drawing chances) when 37 Nb6 is met by 37...Rxc3 and 37 Re3 R8c6 looks OK for Black.
Sep-12-06  AdrianP: What about 18 f5!? as an 'improvement'
Sep-12-06  euripides: <adrian> how does that improve on the game ? White plays f5 on move 20 anyway, and the intervening moves of a3 and Nb5 look quite good.

By the way, the new season is soon starting ....

Sep-12-06  AdrianP: <euripides> I was thinking 18. f5 Ne5 19. fe Qe6 20 Nd5 while the bishop is still on c8 - my thinking being that White does not need to prevent ...b4 if the d5 square is available. But, on reflection, I think you're right that the game is better, getting the light-squared bishop for the inactive b3 knight.

<new season> I'd love to but I don't really have the time. Monday nights, in particular, are out of the question for the next few months. Best of luck, though.

Jan-14-14  GREYSTRIPE: Hikaru Nakamura deftly made the sines of N5-Chess with the confidence of a Center Game-Holds. The Advance of Bishops did not stop Hikaru Nakamura from making the exchanges of weighted-pieces-squares required to maintain this sharp toward. The fact that the opponent did not square their position-pieces at any time during the game helped Hikaru Nakamura to disqualify the opposer. The drawn-off bishop posed no threat at g3 as the King and Knight held Pawns. The Knights of the center-holds Hikaru Nakamura N5-Int were unable to yield. This is because of Hikaru Nakamura's unwavering-strength. Center Game is holds, and the Sicilian Kan of Hikuru Nakamura made sense to the Great Grandmaster of Tournament Chess Games or he wouldn't have played the Center. His opponent did not play center-holds, but made half-gestures toward the edges of reasonable play. Hikuru Nakamura made a point of never having his King outside Ottomans in most games where Bishops exchange, and the Gauss is Calc.DS-A0(Hisgames). The chess-game ended with a Hikuru Nakamura having victory due to the White having no desire to chase two rabbits at once regards feints-of-chess. He took no side-tracks to the victory instead holding true to intentions and practice of the Sicilian Kan Chess Opening.
