i think Qh4!! deserves two exclamation marks
I actually thought of zugzwang, but with Ka2 instead of Qh4!
You are my favorite coach!
Great video, really like this series :)
Interesting and good explanations about the why for key moves.
Terrific analysis of a fascinating aggressive game by Nakumura.
oooooooookkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy! it is not bad but neither good.
Enjoyable game and excellent commentry and analysis. Thanks.
Yes indeed, a "game for the ages"! I'm going to watch this again because this lesson so clearly demonstrates that Zugzwang is something to watch for, even when it seems extremely unlikely. Chess is so so complex!
Interesting game and thanks for analyzing it.
The last 1th April video was way better. :(
I learned a great deal from your great commentary. Thanks.Very exciting game too.
very nice one!
What, no April Fools' video this year?

Despite being close several times, Nakamura famously has never overcome Carlsen in classical time controls. In Zurich this year, he built a formidable battery on the h-file. But did he have the Swiss precision to finally grab his first win? Coach Keaton reviews the semantics of the aggressive opening as well as the hugely-complex attack, in which a quiet move amidst the maelstrom was called for!
