Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-06-09  somitra: Excellent game.

Mig's comments on this one: <Nakamura may be rounding into form right on time. His win in the 8th round over Israeli GM Golod is vintage, with one sharply calculated tactical blow after another. Brutal stuff.>

Aug-08-10  Whitehat1963: White to move after 46...Rc5. Love it. No way I'd even consider it over the board, and it's not really that hard to see. I just know I'd never look for something like that.
Mar-06-11  64rutor: 29...Ne4? "Golod cracks!", Danny Gormally in his book "Play Chess Like the Pros". 29...Qh4! (Gormally).
