National Open Blitz 2007 - Akobian vs Nakamura

Watch the video at

This is a fascinating blitz game between GM Varuzan Akobian - GM Hikaru Nakamura in National Open Blitz Championship, Las Vegas, USA. 7.06.2007.

In the starting position as you seen in this video, Nakamura a blitz expert hold a slight advantage due to his passed pawn on a4 . Although Akobian also have a passed pawn on d6, it is not as dangerous as Nakamura passed pawn.

The most interesting moment when Akobian play the move 11.Ra6 and take the spare queen confidently as he will win the game. Nakamura annoyed with Akobian grabbed a spare queen and stare at Akobian seriously!
