Naka beat the king & become the king of kings.

Looks like Nakamura blew it.

Is there any doubt at all that Nakamura is an overrated choker and is a level below carlsen and nakamura?

Wow!!! Is Nakamura the biggest choke in chess history?

Quite sad. Naka was brilliant until that fatal error!. He should have won in vintage Nakamura style. I think we need to go back to 2h 30 min for first 40 moves, or give incr from move one. Attacking players many a time get a strong attack going, then spoil it all, under time control pressure. Solid players like Carlsen reap that advantage. Many a chess brilliancy is lost forever due to this.

@anonymous 1:35, Nakamura is worse than Anand. Anand blew games that were dead draws. Nakamura blew a game in which he was ahead +9 with stockfish. The mere sound of Carlsen/Aronian's names send shivers down Nakamura's spine

Carlsen can beat Nakamura blinfolded!

Brilliance is not just getting into a winning position, but more importantly converting it into a win. Naka is a skilled blitz player, so time pressure is not the main factor in his collapse. He just could not maintain his composure on the verge of beating the best player in the world. Sadly, he will not get this chance too many times.

Awesome play by Carlsen.
