    I know this, but you are working on a very large presumption... I assume you think he can't?

    I'm not so sure of what other people are saying, but I personally think Nakamura's lack of wins in classical chess disqualify him as Carlsen's biggest rival.

    He hardly ever plays standard... but I have heard him myself, he considers Carlsen as his rival and no doubt he is Carlsens. The underestimation of Naka just makes me a sick. 

    He a genius on the board and anyone who watched and studies his games know this. I don't care whether Naka has won a standard against him or not... I'm only concerned about whether Naka is a true rival, and yes... he is. He's actually the best rival in my opinion/ 

    Just check in his Fide Profile:

    http://ratings.fide.com/card.phtml?event=2016192

    And then click in "Click to view all previous previous" (in the bottom left) to see his "Individual Calculations Full Report", so you can see also previous years.

    Starting from March 2012, also his games from Rapid and Blitz are registered.

    You will see them like this:

    Standard - Rapid - Blitz

    You will see that he plays much more standard tournaments and games than rapid and blitz tournaments.

    And even before that, you can see that the only month before March 2012 when he didn't play an standard game was in May 2011.

    Even if he does, the underestimation of his abilities are really overlooked here. I don't know if it is because some people consider him a ''punk''... but as far as I am concerned, anyone who can't see him being his rival obviously can't see talent when they see it.

    The problem isn't that he has a lack if talent , it's that Carlsen has a massive edge over the most talented players in the world. In addition Nakamura struggles with Carlsen more than most around his level.

    Nakamura is A  rival, is just that he is not THE rival.

    I could give loads of examples in which players have had edges, sometimes for years at a time before they come around to their style. And trust me, it happens.

    It's a subjective opinion... he certainly isn't the [i]only[/i] rival, that I agree with.
