Timely Tactics #6 - Kramnik vs. Nakamura

Hikaru Nakamura

Lev Aronian took first overall at the 2011 Amber Rapid and Blindfold Tournament today. Aronian was first in the Blindfold section while Magnus Carlsen had the top score in the Rapid section.

In their rapid game (G/25) in the 11th and final round, Hikaru Nakamura played this knockout to force Vladimir Kramnik to resign in a few moves.

See if you can spot the move, then play over the whole game score after the break.
