Hikaru Nakamura does it again

Nakamura wins, leads San Sebastián tournament by full point

donostia

Hikaru Nakamura wins the games with such ease that it is impossible not to compare his show with some of the performances of the legendary champion Bobby Fischer. He earned another full point in the 5th round of the main tournament at Donostia Chess Festival, in the match against experienced Spanish Grandmaster Pablo San Segundo. With 4,5 points, Nakamura is now a full point ahead of Ruslan Ponomariov and Peter Svidler.

Five-time Russian champion Svidler is catching up with his second consecutive win, this time against Anatoly Karpov. This was a third loss with black pieces for the former world champion, and not even the solid Petroff defence can hold the ground.

In the KUTXA Tournament Loek Van Wely was held to his first draw and the only winner of the round, GM Jordi Magem Badals is closing up to only half a point distance.
