HIKARU NAKAMURA
(born Dec-09-1987, 26 years old) Japan (citizen of United States of America)

[what is this?]
IM (2001); GM (2003); 3-time US Champion (2004, 2009 and 2012); world #1 rapid, blitz and bullet player, world #7 player (of the standard time game - September 2014).

Prodigy

Christopher Hikaru Nakamura was born December 9, 1987 in Hirakata in Osaka, Japan, and is the younger brother of Asuka Nakamura. When he was two years old he and his family moved to the United States. He started playing chess when he was four, coached by his stepfather, Sunil Weeramantry. He was the youngest player in US history to defeat an International Master (Jay R Bonin) in a USCF-rated game (10 years, 0 months), to become a National Master (USCF) (10 years 79 days), to defeat a Grandmaster (Arthur Bisguier) in a USCF-rated game (10 years, 117 days), and to become an IM (13 years 2 months), although most of these records have subsequently been surpassed. In 2003 he became the USA's youngest-ever grandmaster (15 years 2 months and 19 days), a record later broken by Fabiano Caruana and Ray Robson.

Championships

<Youth> In 2001 he won the World U14 championship.

<National> When he won the Chessmaster US Championships 2005 (2004) (on tiebreak from Alexander Stripunsky), he was the youngest player to win the US championship since Robert James Fischer. He also won the US Championship (2009) outright by half a point ahead of the joint runners-up Robert Lee Hess and Alexander Onischuk, and the US Championship (2012) outright by a full point ahead of the winner of the 2010 and 2011 events, Gata Kamsky.

<World championship cycle> Seeded number 87 and aged 16, Nakamura reached the final 16 in the FIDE World Championship Knockout Tournament (2004), defeating 46th seed Sergey Volkov, 19th seeded Alexey Aleksandrov, and 51st seed Alexander Lastin in the preliminary rounds before bowing out to number 3 seed and finalist Michael Adams in the round of 16. He qualified to play in the World Cup (2013) through his rating, and defeated Peruvian WGM Deysi Estela Cori Tello in the first round, Azeri GM Eltaj Safarli in the second round and Indian GM Baskaran Adhiban in the third round, but was eliminated in the Round of 16 (fourth round) by Ukrainian GM Anton Korobov.

<Grand Prix Series 2012-2013> He started the Grand Prix series with last at the FIDE Grand Prix London (2012). After bouncing back into contention with outright second in the FIDE Grand Prix Zug (2013), a poor showing at the FIDE Grand Prix Thessaloniki (2013) eliminated him from contention for the top 2 spots that will qualify for the 2014 Candidates Tournament. (1) He did however place 3rd behind Fabiano Caruana and Boris Gelfand in the FIDE Grand Prix Paris (2013) to accumulate 300 GP points and place 6th in the 2012-13 Grand Prix series. Subsequently, his only chance to play in the 2014 Candidates Tournament was to be nominated as the Organizer's wild card once the venue was settled, however this did not eventuate.

Standard tournaments

In 2005, he won the 7th Foxwoods Open (2005).

In 2007, he won both the National Open (2007) that was held in Las Vegas and the Casino de Barcelona (2007).

The following year, he beat Bu Xiangzhi in the play-off to win the Gibraltar (2008) Masters Open with 8.0/10.

Nakamura tied for first with Evgeny Najer at the World Open (2009) after taking two last-day byes, each worth half a point and won the Donostia Chess Festival (2009) in tiebreak over Ruslan Ponomariov.

In 2010, he came =4th at Corus (2010), and was equal top scorer in the victorious Rising Stars team in the Rising Stars - Experience (2010) tournament. He scored 5/9 (+1 -0 =8) at the Tal Memorial (2010), placing =4th, and finished the year with =4th place in the London Chess Classic (2010).

Nakamura began 2011 by taking clear first place at the A-Group of the prestigious category 20 Tata Steel (2011) (formerly Corus) with a 9/13 score (+6 -1 =6) and a 2880 performance rating, ahead of a powerful field including the world's top four players: World Champion Viswanathan Anand, Magnus Carlsen, Levon Aronian and former World Champion Vladimir Kramnik. In June 2011, Nakamura placed =3rd in the Bazna King's Tournament (2011), in July he scored 4.5/10 at Dortmund (2011), in August he came =1st in the 2011 US Open Championship with 7.5/9 and in October he came =3rd in the 4th Bilbao Masters (2011) with 5/10. The following month, he suffered a lapse in form at the category 22 Tal Memorial (2011), scoring 3/9 and coming last but recovered to finish 2011 with second place behind Kramnik at the category 20 London Chess Classic (2011), scoring +4 -1 =3 (TPR of 2887).

He started 2012 by coming =2nd (4th on count back) at the Reggio Emilia (2011), half a point behind Anish Giri, and then came =5th at Tata Steel (2012), scoring 7.5/13 (+3 -1 =9). He followed up in April 2012 with 1st at the 6th Annual Grand Pacific Open held in British Columbia. He competed in the Tal Memorial (2012) held in June, scoring 4/9. In July/August 2012, Nakamura placed a solid =3rd at the Biel Chess Festival (2012), but underperformed at the 28th European Club Cup (2012), although in October 2012, he recovered to some extent by winning the 4 player double round robin 16th Unive Tournament (2012) (crown group) with 4.5/6 (+3 -0 =3). Nakamura finished 2012 with a strong 3rd placement in the London Chess Classic (2012) behind Carlsen and Kramnik, adding enough rating points to restore him to the top 10.

2013 started with a modest 7/13 result for outright 6th at the Tata Steel (2013) event. He then followed up in May 2013 with equal 2nd at the Norway Chess Tournament (2013) with 5.5/9, half a point behind Sergey Karjakin and 3rd on tiebreak behind Carlsen; he also placed =2nd with 6/9 at the preliminary Norway Chess Tournament (Blitz) (2013) held to determine the draw for the main tournament, and earned the right to play with the White pieces in 5 games out of 9. In June 2013, he contested the category 22 Tal Memorial (2013), and was outright leader after 6 rounds. However, he lost the last 3 game to place 6th with 4.5/9, winning more games (4) and losing more games (4) than any other player in the tournament. Soon after, he came =3rd in the Houston Open in July 2013. In September he played in the quadrangular double round robin category 22 Sinquefield Cup (2013), and was in contention for first place until the last round, when he drew against Gata Kamsky finishing second with 3.5/6 (+2 -1 =3; TPR 2863) behind Magnus Carlsen.

Nakamura's first event in 2014 was the category 20 Tata Steel (2014) where he scored 5/11 (+2 -3 =6) to shed a few rating points for FIDE's February rating list. He next competed in the category 23 Zurich Chess Challenge (2014) in which he placed 4th with 2/5 after coming agonisingly close to defeating World Champion Magnus Carlsen. He came 2nd with 3.5/5 in the Zurich Chess Challenge (Rapid) (2014) which followed the standard time event, to remain in 4th in the overall event with the results of the standard and rapid events combined. In April, he participated in the inaugural Gashimov Memorial (2014), a category XXII 6-player DRR event inaugurated in honor of the late Azeri grandmaster, scoring 5/10 and placing =3rd behind Carlsen and Caruana.

Team Events

<Olympiads> Nakamura has represented the U.S. in the Olympiads of 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014, helping his country to the bronze medal in 2006 and 2008. He scored 6/10 during the Chess Olympiad (2010) on top board for the USA and a performance rating of 2741 and 6/9 in the Chess Olympiad (2012), coming in fourth on top board. His overall score in Olympiads is 30.5 points accumulated in 48 games played.

<World Team Championship> Nakamura played board 1 for the USA at the FIDE World Team Championship (2013), winning individual silver and helping his team to 4th place in the event.

<European Club Cup> In October 2013, he played top board for the Italian team O.R. Padova in the European Club Cup (2013), and won individual bronze, his team placing 10th. In September 2013, he played board 2 for the Italian team Obiettivo Risarcimento which also placed 10th.

Rapids

Nakamura is one of the world's best rapid and blitz players, and the world's best bullet (one-minute) player. He regularly plays on the internet, usually at the ICC where he is the highest rated player (userid <Smallville>), and at Playchess, where he is known as <Star Wars>. He has set many rating records under different categories. In 2008, he challenged and broke blitz king Alexander Grischuk ’s record at ICC of 3737, reaching 3750. Grischuk subsequently challenged Nakamura to a 20 game 3 minutes blitz match, which Nakamura took out convincingly by 14.5-5.5. (2) He also won the first ICC Open in 2011 ahead of over 2000 other contestants. (3)

In 2007, he won the annual Corsica Masters (2007), defeating Rustam Kasimdzhanov in the final. One of the most convincing demonstrations of Nakamura’s ability as a rapid player was when he won the Cap d'Agde (2008), defeating Bu Xiangzhi, Anatoly Karpov and Vassily Ivanchuk in the playoff matches to take first prize in a field that included Carlsen. Nakamura also defeated Carlsen to take out the BNbank Blitz (2009). He was runner-up to Ivanchuk at the Cap d'Agde (2010) in the playoff. He also defeated Rising Stars team mate Anish Giri for the right to play at Amber 2011.

In 2012, Nakamura won the trifecta of silver medals at the SportAccord World Mind Games (Men's Rapid) (2012), the World Mind Games (Men's Blitz) and the World Mind Games (Men's Blindfold) events. He closed out 2013 by winning the London Chess Classic (Knockout) (2013), defeating Gelfand in the final by 1.5-0.5, after qualifying for the final by winning the preliminary London Chess Classic (Group C) (2013).

In June 2014, he competed in both the FIDE World Rapid Championship (2014) and the FIDE World Blitz Championship (2014) that were held in Dubai. In the former, he scored a relatively meager 8.5/15, losing 40 rapid rating points, while he was much more successful in the latter, scoring 16/21, being the runner up by a point behind the winner Magnus Carlsen. His blitz rating skyrocketed to over 2900.

He authored the book Bullet Chess: One Minute to Mate.

Matches

In December 2004, Nakamura played the best-of-six game Karjakin - Nakamura Match (2004) in the "Duelo de los Jovenes Prodigios" (Duel of the Wonder Boys) in Cuernavaca, Estado de Morelos, Mexico, winning 4.5-1.5 (+4 -1 =1). In May 2011 at the St Louis chess club, he won the Nakamura - Ponomariov Match (2011) by 3.5-2.5 (+2 =3 -1). In June 2014, he played for the Cez Trophy Navara - Nakamura Match (2014) in Praha, Czechia, which involved a 4-game standard time match against David Navara. He won the match by 3.5-0.5.

960 Chess

In August 2009, Nakamura defeated Aronian in Mainz, Germany to become the 960 World Champion and remains unchallenged as such.

Ratings and rankings

As of 1 September 2014, Nakamura's ratings were:

<Standard> 2782, maintaining his position as the top ranking player in the Americas. He is the #7 player in the world;

<Rapid> 2800 (world #9); and

<Blitz> 2906 (world #2).

Oct-27-14  bugabay: hmmm.....One way to avoid another loss from Magnus...as it stands...the record shows this on cg.com.

Classical games: Magnus Carlsen beat Hikaru Nakamura 11 to 0, with 16 draws.

But wait...that's incomplete...hmmmmm...didn't Magnus beat him on his hometurf recently???

Yes, it was at the Sinquefeld Cup Tourney...where Naka proudly held the lantern rouge....

12-zip it is....

Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2014

And rogge want to see a championship match between Mangus and Nakamura??? Be serious...aren't you tired looking at L column yet??

Oct-27-14  bugabay: <I am willing to. I bet you're not.>

I bet I am willing to...name your price.

Oct-27-14  SirRuthless: Your price is your account. If Nakamura wins that death match you must retire the name bugabay. If So wins that deathmatch I will retire the name SirRuthless for good. In other words if you lose your account is closed and same for me.
Oct-27-14  SirRuthless: What does Magnus' crushing record vs Nakamura have anything to do with this event or anything else but that head to head matchup, really? You are simply trolling. We can all count to twelve. Nakamura had previously never beaten several people he has beaten in the last year and a half. What is your point?
Oct-27-14  bugabay: So now you are not willing to accept the bet that I am willing to bet....hmmmm...okay...

<SirRuthless: Your price is your account. If Nakamura wins that death match you must retire the name bugabay. If So wins that deathmatch I will retire the name SirRuthless for good. In other words if you lose your account is closed and same for me.>

Done deal...kibitz all you want now...come January you'll be no SirRuthless no more....

Wes will WIN...

Oct-27-14  bugabay: < SirRuthless: What does Magnus' crushing record vs Nakamura have anything to do with this event or anything else but that head to head matchup, really? You are simply trolling. We can all count to twelve. Nakamura had previously never beaten several people he has beaten in the last year and a half. What is your point?>

POINT IS:

Naka will never beat Magnus...ever...

Out of pity....maybe yes, you'll never know when Magnus start feeling sorry for him.

POINT CLOSED.

Oct-27-14  SirRuthless: <<<<<<<<<<<<bugaay>

>>>>>>>>k bro>>>>

Oct-27-14  schweigzwang: From my point of view, <bugabay> is already retired.

  SteinitzLives: Nice exciting game against Caruana today. Enjoyed how neither side would compromise and took some chances (that for some may have looked scary) to win well into the endgame! A classic fighting draw throughout!

They both resembled Carlsen in endgame style with a complete unwillingness to compromise, and an optimism that some opportunity may present itself, so keep playing with the imbalances in place, and create more if feasible!

Oct-27-14  SirRuthless: Nak got outplayed in the opening and middle game and then proceeded to outplay Fab in the endgame like usual this year. Nothing more, nothing less.
Oct-27-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  SteinitzLives: <Sir Ruthless> ridiculous, try playing through the game and studying it, even use an engine if you want to, before making simple comments.

The game was pretty much dead even until move 30, with each side fighting well. No one got outplayed in the opening.

Naka's 30. b4 well into the middlegame gave the advantage to Caruana, who held it for 17 moves until his 47 . . . . Ne4 allowed white simplifications and activity but only equality.

From there it was unbalanced with black holding the extra pawn and white having better heavy piece placement.

Most entertaining, and no one outplayed anyone in either the opening or the endgame. The last 18 moves were a great see-saw battle, with neither side compromising or making mistakes.

You will lose your knighthood, if you don't practice better research.

Oct-27-14  SirRuthless: When you have to make moves like 22.Qf1?! and 25.Rdc1?1(lol)then you have been outplayed or you clearly have no plan but to shuffle and wait. I watched it live unfortunately. Nakamura was languishing until Caruana sprung his jack from the box with the ridiculous Ne4 allowing Bx dx Qxb6.
Oct-28-14  SugarDom: Better put the bet quote in memorable quotes, the troll has been proven wrong in a bet before but did not honor the wager...
Oct-28-14  torrefan: One who does not honor a wager simply owes you. For the wager of sin is debt.
Oct-28-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  SteinitzLives: "SR" I give you credit for determination in following the wrong road earnestly. Check any engine, the game was still almost completely even -.12 after Naka's 21st move with even best play by black, and -.24 with best play (which Caruana did not do) after white's 25th, faggeddaboudit! Find a better trolling topic, you can't even fake it on this.
Oct-28-14  bugabay: < torrefan: One who does not honor a wager simply owes you. For the wager of sin is debt.>

That would be Jim Batle...

Oct-28-14  fgh: <bugabay: < torrefan: One who does not honor a wager simply owes you. For the wager of sin is debt.>

That would be Jim Batle...>

Talking to yourself again, Glenn?

Oct-29-14  SirRuthless: <SteinitzLives> You don't need an engine to see that 22.Qf1 and 25.Rdc1 are bad moves. It is a shame that such a nice avatar and handle are wasted on such a belligerent and bitter old man.
Oct-29-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  SteinitzLives: You must look beneath the surface in chess. A passive looking move is not necessarily a bad move. Furthermore, Avatar envy is also unhealthy and reflects looking too much at the surface as well.

Live beyond the surface, your life can be richer than mindless troll postings. Go outside, ride a bike, fly a kite, do something with your life!

Finally. I encourage you not to be self-sensitive as it is the scant refuge of the bereft.

Oct-29-14  schweigzwang: Man, I wish I had avatar envy like those other guys do.
Oct-29-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: Avatar envy is a new angle, mais certainement.
Oct-29-14  SirRuthless: It's such a glorious avatar and handle combination. The work of a genius which is why I cannot understand how he thinks Qf1 was good in that position?
