Oct-18-15  wordfunph: beautiful 30.h5!

Naka yodaman!

Oct-18-15  Pulo y Gata: Seems to me that the old fear that So has for certain players has been resurrected. He had good positions in the first two games but could not push ahead.

Nakamura owns So now.

Oct-18-15  Pulo y Gata: 31.Ng6 was just brutal.
Oct-18-15  maviahb: Your So(ul) is mine
Oct-22-15  tonsillolith: <31.Ng6 was just brutal.> No it wasn't.

It was also effective.

Oct-22-15  epistle: <Nakamura owns So now.>

So true.

Like a dog.

When he needs some elo points, he gets the dog out and beat him. Often brutally.

So fun to watch!

  OhioChessFan: It's a matter of taste, but I'm with <word> in that I find the preparatory pawn push, 30. h5, to be the really nice move in the winning combo.
Sep-30-16  Dave12: typical nanka, brilliant pawn play h5! e7! he is amazing in this kind of positions, using pawn to attack the cornered king. W So vs Nakamura, 2015
