GM Hikaru Nakamura

American GM Hikaru Nakamura is one of six GMs competing in the 5th annual Romgaz Kings’ Tournament in Medias, Romania, from June 11 to 22. It’s a six-player double round robin, with an average Elo of 2758.

At half-time, after the first five rounds, Hikaru was in third place with 2.5/5. Then, in round six, he drew his second game against the leader, GM Magnus Carlsen.

After the game, he tweeted that he has been “continuing to play like absolute garbage ever since Wijk aan Zee.” (Wijk aan Zee was where he won the top section, ahead of Anand, Aronian, Carlsen, and Kramnik!)
