Wildcard Game #4

Wildcard #4: GM Hikaru Nakamura (STL) vs GM Melikset Khachiyan (LA) 0-1

Greg Shahade: It was obviously a sloppy game as Nakamura went completely crazy trying to win, but it was also very exciting and involved one of the top ten players in the world. I'm curious to see where the Game of the Year Judges will rank it.

I too am curious how this will fare, I thought it was hands-down game of the week but it ended up not winning, It's nice to see that the judges corrected their error of not rewarding a sub-2500 for beating a top ten-er.

This game is definitely deserving of gotw .When a regular Gm pummels a top 10 in the world, the world must take notice. Very instructive beat down by Malik Khacian, congress. I think a game like this will so very well.
