Hikaru Nakamura impressive in San Sebastián

Donostia Chess Festival, 7-16th July

donostia

Hikaru Nakamura continues to crush the opposition in the main tournament of the Donostia Chess Festival. His latest victim was top Spanish representative Francisco Vallejo Pons. In what would many call an equal position arising from the Scandinavian defence, Nakamura optimistically pushed his pawns towards Paco’s King and eventually earned a full point.

Ruslan Ponomariov won another fine game, this time against Sergei Movsesian and is already alone on the second place, half a point behind Nakamura. Peter Svidler snatched his first victory, with a brutal attack from the Black side of the Marshall Ruy Lopez.

In the KUTXA Tournament, Loek Van Wely scored a fourth consecutive win and is firmly holding the top position, a full point ahead of Chessdom commentator Christian Bauer, who also won on Saturday, Jordi Magem Badals and Hicham Hamdouchi. The rest of the field is further one and a half points behind.
