Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-22-13  EvanTheTerrible: Fun game. If Nakamura had not wasted so much time on Nf3, he probably could have continued--at least until time control.
Sep-22-13  SirRuthless: Nakamura was lucky to hold the draw with his clock situation.
Sep-22-13  savagerules: The other first round games were like they were played at a mortuary, this game felt like it was played at a raucous party.

  Stonehenge: Black could have tried 26...Nb4 27. Qh8+ Ke7 28. Qh7+ Kd6 29. Qxb7 Qc5.
Nov-17-13  LIFE Master AJ: Explosive tactics ... probably a lot of this was home cooking, I think.
Nov-17-13  LIFE Master AJ: Carlsen vs Anand, 2013.

Carlsen by-passed it, but we could have gotten into this same line ... "The Marshall ANTI-SLAV Gambit."

Sep-21-20  spektrowski: Until 12. 0-0-0, the game followed Boris Vainstein's analysis of the Bronstein - Kotov 1948 game, published in 1976 in his book "Improvization in the Chess Art". Vainstein only considered 12... Nf7 13. Bh5, but Tomashevsky found another way.
