Oct-28-10  DiscoJew: Rumor has it Nakamura only used 8 seconds on this entire game.

  whiteshark: How about facts, for starters? :D
Oct-28-10  Kazzak: Truth has it that Kosintseva had 1:39 on the clock, while Nakamura had 22:15.

Time was added for each move. It's 25+10", and they played for 44 moves, so you do the math, DJ.

in support of a.m.:

time used: <2:45> + 440 seconds <7:20>

Oct-28-10  kramputz: All those added seconds stink and unfair.
Turns into a big joke.
Nov-01-10  Ulhumbrus: If Kosintseva wants to avoid the pin 11 Bg5 in reply to the move 10...Qe7 connecting the Rooks, an alternative to 10..Nd7 is 10...Bxe3 11 Qxe3 Qe7 connecting the Rooks
Nov-09-10  ReikiMaster: 26...f5 27.g5 Rc8 looks ok. 34...Kf7 may be the last chance.
