Kramnik crushes Nakamura in 21 moves

Featured is the 11th and final round game between Hikaru Nakamura and Vladimir Kramnik from the Titled Tuesday (Late) tournament held on March 14th, 2023. Nakamura, out of contention for any prizes at 7/10, decided to experiment with his opening choice by playing an early Kf2. Although Nakamura would likely defeat several strong players despite playing such a dubious opening, Kramnik demonstrated his class, crushing Nakamura in just 21 moves. The game is shown as it was played in real-time, without commentary, since the moves speak for themselves.
