Hikaru at 19 was a beast 😈

19 year old Hikaru Nakamura sacrifices his queen in a game of chess to beat his grandmaster opponent in a brilliant way. But the cool thing is that even beginners can understand why his moves were brilliant.

The used picture actually shows Hikaru at the age of 20.

You can find the game if you search for “Nakamura vs. Krasenkow 2007”.

  1. so true bestie, I always think about breeding Hikaru

  2. Moral of the story: I guess don't resign if your queen is taken just in case you make brilliant play

  3. This is what men are cappable of if we could get over women so easly xD


  5. Hikaru can crush me at chess, but I’m pretty confident I can crush him at Chessboxing. As long as I can get to the boxing portion before getting checkmated.

  6. Thank you for bringing back the music & great video as always

  7. Exciting (great choice of music), instructive and masterful! Hikaru should hire you as his personal commentator.
    And I'm never tired of you using "dominate" and "bye bye" at least 1 per video each.

  8. Can you make a video on the Accelerated Dragon Defense for black?

  9. Everything is a trap with Hikaru just playing the guy is a trap. Unless you are Magnus.

  10. Best video so far. Have appreciated the entire series, but the deceased use of zooming and the new on-board graphics really helped. Music was good, better then the recent no-music trial.
