Nakamura does seem to be able to get good positions against Carlsen and good positions which suit his aggressive style. But a point seems to come when Carlsen's stout defending tilts the balance of the game and once Carlsen has the edge it is pretty soon all over.
Maybe Nakamura needs to be able to concentrate intensely for just that little bit longer, or find just that little bit more intuitive feel for the attacking positions he creates.
Anyway I hope he stays true to his attacking instincts and does not start to put safety first Azeri style. Better to lose playing fighting chess than that.
Magnus Carlsens says, "I know Kasparov well, and the way he thinks... I've had very good results against Nakamura...right now there are four to five players... including me, who have significantly better understanding of chess than Nakamura. And I don't know if even a man like Kasparov can change that..."
wow, magnus carlsen seems to have a very high opinion of himself. reminds me of kanye "i'm a creative genius" west. after hearing Carlsen bragging about himself like that, i hope some 9-year-old chess prodigy comes along and destroys Carlsen, 10 games out of 10!
I hope some 9 year old prodigy comes along & shows kanye what it's like to have an IQ above retarded level.
I don't agree with everything Kanye says, but imo he's probably one of the smartest people around today. That guy is a genius. Just listen to his Yeezus album - it's not the kind of music I listen to for fun, but as far as I'm aware, it's not like any other music that's ever been made. And it's not just a jumble of elements that sounds weird and discordant for no reason. Everything works together, giving the album a unique, recognizable style.
