There is some controversy surrounding this game. A takeback offer was made by Nakamura after not playing 26.Nc7. It turns out in post-mortem analysis that this Knight fork is not in fact the best move as this Houdini analysis shows:


r5k1/p4n1p/1pn1b1p1/rN3p2/1p2pP2/4P1P1/3­PN1BP/1R1R3K w - - 0 1

(, Microsoft 10.10.2012)

As you can see Nc7 is the 3rd best choice. During the game the takeback offer was accepted as it was a 15 minute game, which both Kingscrusher and Nakamura do not usually play. Usually both stick to the 5-minute autopairing.

After Nc7 was played and revealed the resource Bc4 Kingscrusher asked to go back to what he wanted to originally play - hence a takeback request was made to go back to the original planned and analysed move. Playing a move with no clue how to follow it up is probably worse than playing an inferior move with the means to at least understand potentially useful followups.

In the game continuation, another knight fork occured but unfortunately forking both of Kingscrusher's rooks compelling resignation.

An amusing encounter and an unusually rare one since Nakamura aka Smallville aka CapilanoBridge usually plays just on the ICC 5-minute autopairing - not the 15 minute autopairing.

In case you have been living on a rock in the last few years, or are not an avid chess player, here is some information about Hikaru Nakumara from Wiki:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hikaru_N...

Hikaru Nakamura (中村光 Nakamura Hikaru?) (born December 9, 1987) is a Japanese-born American chess grandmaster. He is ranked fifth in the world by FIDE as of October 2012, and is the current United States Chess Champion.
Nakamura's first supertournament victory came at Wijk aan Zee 2011, finishing clear first ahead of the four top-rated players in the world in a performance described by former World Champion Garry Kasparov as better than any tournament result of Bobby Fischer's, and the best by an American in more than 100 years.[1]
Nakamura is the top United States Chess Federation (USCF) rated player at 2876, as published on June 1, 2012. As of October 2012, he has reached a FIDE rating of 2786; 5th in the world and the highest of his career.

...

And here is the relevant section about his blitz chess abilities:

"
Nakamura is very skilled at blitz chess, and has been called "easily the best blitz player in America"[2] and "one of the best blitz players in the world".[53]
Nakamura is well known in the chess community for playing on the Internet regularly. He plays primarily on two chess sites: Internet Chess Club ('Smallville'(Which he does not use)) ('Capilanobridge'(His current account)) and Playchess ('Star Wars'). He is the strongest bullet, blitz and standard player on the server and he has set many rating records under different categories.[54]
