Notes on chess in Chicago.
I'll go with 1.Rb6! and now (a) 1...Nxb6 2.Nf6+! and 3.Qd8#; (b) 1...Qxb7 2.Rxb7 Bxb7 3.Nc7+ and 4.Nxa8.
Between winning in 17 moves using the exact line given in Van Wely's own soon-to-be-published analysis, and holding a dead-lost rook ending against him, Nakamura's making Van Wely look pretty silly.
