Very nice game to share: what an amazing finish. Ray deserved more from that effort though.
I wish I could finish I play the dragon variation.
The quote is actually: "sac, sac, mate."
amazing game!! and great comments, thanks!
Never the less, this is great game !
This is great!!
Another classic "sadistic king march". Does this game bring the number of recorded GM games, finishing in this style, up to two? The only other one I know of is Nigel Short's game against Jan Timman.
awesome game,I liked how Hikaru broke through the h file.Thanks Eugene.
GM Perelshteyen You are an incredible narrator ! So well pepared, so enthusiastic ! I get very excited seeing your videos and you were at your best in this one. A hearty thanks.
At 13:50 does ng5 and then Re5 also work? I thought it would, but it doesn't make a difference. Robson needs to solve his time trouble problem.
What a beautiful game! Thanks for the clear analysis and commentary.
Watched this last night ... truly amazing ... true work of art in every respect ... and the excellent commentary and analysis by GM Perelsteyn spotlights this masterpiece.
at the end of the game with Bf4+, i think he would have been better with Be7+
that would force white to take (Rbxe7 or Rhxe7) with one of the rooks to keep a check going, allowing black to trade queen for rook and hang in there. if white takes with the knight (Nxe7), then Qd2+ affords black a strong opportunity to turn things around i think.
id appreciate some feedback on this idea if anyone has the time to analyze it a few moves beyond what i suggested.
i learned a lot from that amazing game and great commentary.
Great video! thanks.

by GM Eugene Perelshteyn
This weekend GM Perelshtyen reviews one of the most creative, exciting games from the 2012 US Championship. When Super-GM Hikaru Nakamura faces off against the young GM Robson in the Dragon Sicilian, you know there exists the potential for something amazing to happen, and they don't disappoint! First a resourceful exchange sacrifice saves the game for black, but then Nakamura finds a "study style" finish to the game... Enjoy!
Players: Nakamura, Hikaru
vs. Robson, Ray
