  Oginschile: Nakamura's defense simply flows together to magically close every corridor that Yifan opens. It seems white's attempts at aggression simply ended in a ruined position. Very solid performance from Nakamura.
Jan-17-13  capanegra: 21.f4? was really a bad move.
Jan-17-13  Illogic: Mark Crowther said of this game <"Hou Yifan was all over the place against Hikaru Nakamura's Sicilian Dragon (14.Qd2? passive and dropping at least a tempo, 21.f4? losing out of hand). Nakamura suggested she didn't understand the position at all and nomatter how un chivalrous that sounds it's hard to disagree with him">
Mar-22-13  IceArtemis: Awww, so understanding the position was a li'l too much for Yifans' frivolous mind? I think not, she is a seriously fine, in the wind sort of player, who made a blunder with f4, got a bit rattled and immediately blundered again with f5.
