But why did Yaz come out of retirement? How sad to watch such a performance. I remember him as one of the greatest players in the world. In a New York Open in the early 80s he was playing blitz for big money with only 1 minute on his clock, whereas everybody else had 5 minutes (yes, even GMs), and he was destroying them!
that's all? need to pay some for full ver.? crap..
Great video and game. I love Eugene's calm diction and rational analysis. Hikaru makes it look easy!
Great positional play and excellent review! Thanks.
nice job, Eugene! I remember watching this live and it was sort of sad because I grew up with Seirawan as we are about the same age. He was a great player and still ... but I'm also delighted to see how great our younger players are ... this is something that we haven't had since Fischer ... someone like Naka now ranked #4 in the world ... it's very very exciting!
Good review. Thanks.
by GM Eugene Perelshteyn
No surprise that GM Perelshteyn's final "gem" from the 2012 US Championship is yet another brilliancy by the player who won the tournament, Super-GM Hikaru Nakamura! Here Hikaru employs an "old school" variation against the French (2.f4) to take advantage of his un-prepared opponent. A positional masterpiece ends with fireworks as Nakamura finds all the right moves to win the title with style!
