Nakamura, The Future World CHamp??

  • #281

    who knows!

    @magnuscarlsenguy : In addition to that it is completely unethical to point ones mistakes out...

    No Nakamura will never be world champ. He won't even win the 2015 candidates should he qualify.

    Random thought, would love to see a Female conquering World Chess.

    The odds are 10,000 to 1 according to Lloyds of London.

    Really?!

    Then when she's done kicking Carlsen's butt, Lloyd's next on her list!

    ahhh

    Well never say never! but the chances are very much zero IMHO!

    I remember Magnus burning him...
    "He's not number 2 in the world, he's not number 3 in the world, he's not number 4 in the world..."

    Magnus thinks there are many better players than Naka.

    So the OP was right. But now that Nakamura has become the World Champion, what are some of the implications of his achievement for the chess world at large? I invite everyone to join in the discussion of the issue and any other related topics in the thread below:

    Not sure why someone felt the need to bump this thread, but Nakamura has got as good a chance at the WCC title as Aronian, Giri, Anand, Topalov, etc.  People just love to hate him.

    Nakamura - horrible 1 on 1 record vs. Carlsen 

    Aronian - career second-runner without enough drive to make it

    Giri - has to prove he can win and not just draw

    Topalov - wildly inconsistent in results

    Anand - out of gas

    Kramnik - not playing head to head with the top 10 enough

    Etc.  You can come up with a reason for most of the top players to not have a chance vs. Carlsen...

    Caruana and So arguably have better chances, but there's nothing particularly wrong with Nakamura. 

    I don't think people thought Kramnik could beat Kasparov either, but he found the key...let Kasparov's own ego defeat him by dashing himself on the rocks of the Berlin.  You never know...people overcome their own barriers or figure out opponents that they previously could not beat all the time.  Carlsen in 2016 was not up to par with his 2014 self...a number of people could take him out.  Karjakin lost on tiebreakers, and he hadn't exactly been tearing up the scene prior to winning the candidates...
