Instructive :) Thank you, GM Perelshteyn! :)
why was bh6 played by mr nakamura?
Interesting game and brilliant analysis!
What an exciting game! Thanks for the instructive analysis.
Great video. Eugene has such a relaxing voice. I could listen to him analyze games all day!
Cool vid. Thanks.
Great video. Not that I could ever get any ideas from it at my pitiful level, but really entertaining.
I loved watching Hikaru sac back the exchange and then just running the a-pawn up the board. Feeling stronger just watching that idea. Very instructional!
I really enjoyed the game and your analysis :)
by GM Eugene Perelshteyn
Unarguably the most critical game of the 2012 US Championship is on display today! GM Perelshteyn reviews the battle between the two pre-tournament favorites, with the defending champion (GM Kamsky) playing the white pieces against the highest rated player, GM Nakamura. A sharp Open Sicilian leads to an unbalanced middlegame where subtle tactics would ultimately decide the outcome...
Players: Kamsky, Gata
vs. Nakamura, Hikaru
Sicilian Defense: Open, Najdorf Variation (B90)
