    i had to share this, been searching for it for ages, in my amazing opinion, the most entertaining game of all time, the speed of execution, the creativity, the sheer fun of playing and whupping a computer, not to mention the employment of the modern defense, it doesn't get any better than this!

    lol, it was a blitz game as well, against crafty, and Nakamura still had 2 minutes fifty left on his clock whilst crafty had 55 seconds, making it all the more amazing!

    Unnecessary, but cool. Were you aware of stalemate as well?

    gulp i think i would have resigned from sheer exhaustion, never the less all them punishment exercises in school would have come in handy while writing up the score sheet.

    hi milkyjoe, yes i probably thought that it was in his mind and he would have certainly been conscious of it, you can watch the game on you tube, if you like, just type nakamura chess otherwise you may get the Glasgow Celtic free kick expert from japan!

    that game wasn't long enough for our taste, here is a marathon, one of those long drawn out boring 1.d4 queen pawn games that we dread!

    Nakamura game was brilliant but the Lazard lose I'm afraid never happened.

    Edward Winter makes a very good case against it's authenticity
    in 'Kings, Commoners and Knaves.'

    no if i could play like that id be over at green pawns house drinking his beer, eating Mrs Pawns food and giving him a whupping on the chess board just because i can, but as it is, i am reading one of his contributions to a rather excellent book at the moment entitled master chess, however, as Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci stated, 'its a wretched pupil that does not surpass his master ! '

    Katastroof, what's wrong with 7.dxe5 dxe5 8.Qxd8 Rxd8 9.Bg5 and now if 9...h6?? 10.Bxf6 Bxf6 11.Nd5 and now White wins the c7 pawn and a8 rook, or else the bishop on f6 with check?

    Or wouldn't it work out that way?

    BTW, I'm playing a game that could have gone this way, but didn't (instead of 6...e5 my opponent played 6...Nbd7), but we're well past that point. Still, I don't want to break any rules about "discussing an ongoing game" so if there is any chance that this will be construed that way, readers should abstain from commentary; and management should feel free to delete this message and any answers.
