    Nakamura - Ponomariov match May 17-25

    World #7 Nakamura vs world #11 Ponomariov. Six classical followed by four rapid. It's about as long as Grischuk vs Gelfand and the players are higher rated!

    Game 1. Ponomariov - Nakamura. Pono wins mating with knight and bishop.

    Funny how Naka makes 2700+ Pono prove he knows how to mate with bishop and knight....

    Pono is a graduate from the classical Soviet school. It is obvious that he knows how to mate with KB (he is using the classical "W" method).

    On the other hand, it is not so clear if Naka actually knows how to mate with KB. It would probably make much more sense if Pono was testing Naka.

    What is the prize for the winner of this match? Anything to do with the next World Champs cycle? If so, hopefully next time there will be more than 4 games in matches (generally reaching 2-2) before fast chess play-offs occur with everything hanging on them.

    No, it's just a training match, probably to give Nak in particular more match experience for the next WC cycle. Apparently there is not even a prize fund though I assume there is substantial appearance money.

    4 and 5 were drawn so tonight is the last chance for either player to win the classical section.

    Naka will probably be content going to the blitz though.

    I don't think there is any blitz. It's six classical and four rapid. If one of them wins the classical match then the rapid is still played. They're not playing for anything in particular so I don't think that they need a tiebreak.

    Nakamura wins game 6 and wins the classical leg of the match 3.5-2.5. Rest day now then two days of two rapids each.
