Playing Blitz Chess Against Hikaru Nakamura
Updated: Aug 11, 2021
Having the worlds best blitz and bullet player, as well as your personal chess idol and inspiration unexpectedly accept your challenge never makes the game/s easy to play! Naka played me in two blitz games and one bullet all of which I played openings I didn't even know I knew (probably nervous). The second and third game were pretty poorly played from me but the first I managed to surprise Naka and sack a bishop into a drawn endgame. Under time pressure however I pushed too hard and lost the game.
