To my loyal fans,

I am pleased with all your support. As you chanted, I promise to crush my opponents and come out victorious.

It's a long road to trek to the summit but I am definitely on the right track to be #1.

Wish me luck.

Carlsen will be crushed this time. Nakamura will show why he's #1.

You are day dreaming again boy.

Naka have already crashed Carlsen but he is too classy for Naka.

Hear ye, hear ye, the king without a throne speaketh. Presenting Her royal highness Nakamura, the #1 in Rapid and Blitz, but wheres the trophy. Nada. Bravo.

Poor Naka. Another humiliating defeat looming up in his wake. I pray that at least some of these players give him a break and let him win. He really needs it before he lost his sanity.

Just wondering why Nakamura is so much infatuated with Carlsen's meat. Naka has shown his true color and it doesnt matter if it is black or white.

What is Nakamura defending in this tourney. His butt I guess, thats all I can think of.

BANZAI, BANZAI, BANZAI, BANZAI. WHAT A LOST CAUSE. Naka should have listen to mama. Avoid playing in strong field which he doesnt have a chance of winning. Bakeru. Bakeru.

I am God, disguised as Hikaru Nakamura. I will dominate the tournament. Everyone else will be playing for 2nd place.

Nakamura the Best in Rapid and Blitz Chess and would be Champion for a long time (if Carlsen is not around lol) But Nakamura will NEVER a Classical Chess World Champion no
matter what he does. Naka's chess sucks big time lol

PeteVine said...

Doesn't every player possess a blitz/rapid rating yet?
Otherwise it's silly to order the starting list by their classical rating.

Nakamura is the best player in the world period. He will dust this field easily. Naysayer better watchout. Naka will humiliate these WANNABE's laughingly, and you can take that to the bank. Have mercy on them Naka PLS.

1. Mamedyarov 2. Le Quang 3. Caruana 4. Karjakin 5. Carlsen 6. Aronian 7. Anand 8. Grishuk 9. Giri 10. Hao Wang. Those are the top ten.

Have mercy on the reposed chess soul of Nakamura, he will surely be missed for his pechant boastful and bragging though always find himself on the losing end. May he Rest in Pieces - From Magnus Carlsen :d

Nakamura will dust Carlsen, Aronian, Caruana, Anand, Mamedyarov, Giri and Le Quang so humiliating they might consider quitting playing chess ever. They will taste the fury of NAKAMURA, the one and only chess megastar in the history of chess. Yes, you can take that to bank.

Nakamura have to change his approach to become number one. He have the chess and the age, but he is missing the rest.

Hey Naka, if you read this here ...

Forget Carlsen, he is just another super strong opponent and it is fun to play with him. Thats all!

And if you play Carlsen, just enjoy the game. You should not care any second about the result in advance. And dont try from the begin on to play to win. Keep yourself alive in the game and wait for the chance. Carlsen is a human too, but he have to you, Naka, a big advantage ... he can laugh!

You are to serious to become number one. That builds a lot of pressure that you can not handle, because it is a extra burden for this job.
And if you miss the next time again, who cares? There come another time and another time ...

Naka, do you understand me? When you was thinking to skip the norway chess, come on boy, that was hissing a white flag ...

See Carlsen not as your special enemy, see him as a funny young strong player, and you will get your chance. He dominates you just with his boyish "I do not care"- smile.

I have since a while the feeling that you lost the fun on this game and that it is for you like working in a coalmine. Make some weeks holidays, and come back as the new relaxed Nakamura ...

Good Luck
