Probably, maybe not.
2:25:05 a trip to nakaland (for the next 5 minutes)
Накамура конкретный Шахматный Супер Спец Молодец Оценка Пять с Плюсом
"a computer would win ths with eyes closed." love it
Naka is cool as hell.
What was he saying was so ridiculous and insane at 2:30:55? Had his opponent only played 122 games and won 114 of them?
Will he be streaming anytime soon? I'd so love to catch a stream live
what's that flag next to his name? chile? taiwan? or the us? at 7:59 he's playing against a clearly usa flag and it's not the same as his
bullet demon so good..
Just a suggestion. Turn off your speakers, or at least turn them down. It's distracting when trying to listen to your awesome commentary.
@ 44:52. "I'll just take…and I'll just check….and I'll just pick off all his rooks….."
I wish Naka would spend some of this time on his classical chess. I might be wrong but his play with the white pieces against the top players needs work. I want him to get into the candidates and win. Believe me…The talent is there.
Is he ok at 1:07:55? Camera goes down for a couple of minutes, then he leaves his queen hanging a few moves later.
Buy a new computer))
Why is this one not hd?
"Don't really want to exchange, but I'll offer an exchange."
Hikaru Nakamura, 2017.
15-minute games would be ideal imo
"It's something of a matter of technique" god I love him
naka knows how to play nearly any opening
naka plays physical chess: lag
2:41:03 is Germany vs. France in WW2 😀
49:23 mate in 3?
Rd1+, Rxd1, Qxd1+, Ne1, Qxe1#
Lag is everywhere!! xD
i like Hikaru, i think he's a nice person aside from being a brilliant chess player.
How do I punish him? It’s punishment time. LMAO!!!!!!
So a millionaire cant get a good computer with a good connection?
2:25:08–2:30:28 best part
Just unbelievable how good Naka is. Wish he’d get a chance at Carlson for the championship. Let’s hope he does well in the candidates tournament.
2:25:30 lmao im done
So if lagging seems to be a problem, why don't these chess sites simply introduce a feature: if you lose time due to lagging, even after lag compensation, they just tell you at the end of the game how much time you lost due to lag? Loss = total lag time – lag compensation. This should be easy to calculate.
why doesn't he play with an increment? everyone one of these stupid 3+0 games ends in flagging
Back when Tang was an IM
