HIKARU NAKAMURA
(born Dec-09-1987) 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 - June 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 and 2012, 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 25.5 points accumulated in 40 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.

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).

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

Match

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).

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 June 2014, Nakamura's ratings were:

<Standard> 2775, maintaining his position as the top ranking player in the Americas. He is the #7 player in the world;

<Rapid> 2841 (world #1); and

<Blitz> 2879 (world #1).

Jun-27-14  SugarDom: <Instead of comparing a chess event to the speed of the Twin Towers coming down, how about comparing it to how quickly Carlsen got up and left the board after being caught cheating by Kosteniuk, Gashimov or Savchenko?>

I will leave my gang members <Appaz> and <KKDEREK> to answer that. LOL.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Nicocobas: I'm having trouble discerning which of these two alternatives bothers me the most: <SugarDom's> unending nonsense or the fact that we just don't ignore him.
Jun-27-14  Jambow: <Nicocobas> Good question and instead of answering his babblings I think you are correct. It would be nice if he had something constructive to add but if he hasn't grown up yet then when?

  KKDEREK: <perfidious>

He's a liar boob..I didn't read the post (cgs clean it up here) but he always says I'm on his iggy list, but somehow always read my posts. When I challenge him for that he says he 'forgave me'..lol Man, I never thought I would miss <timhortons> on this page..At least he was funnier.

Jun-28-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <KKDEREK> What is he on about with that comment on Carlsen caught cheating--the last of his 'contributions' which I saw?

<bobtheknob> seemed a propos a while back.....

Jun-28-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  KKDEREK: I don't know..He was whining in So's page saying So's absence on rapid and blitz championship 'diminishes' the value of the title..Do you think this pretz you post something like that had Nakamura won it? Ha! How unbiased...

But you are right , he's always up on something...stupid.

  Jim Bartle: <because a real Christian would not go around judging and accusing people without proof and justification. >

Did you really write that, <sugardom>?

You made an accusation against me but have refused over and over to offer any "proof and justification."

Jun-28-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: The post cited by <Jim> is proof that <pipi> is scarcely the only poster who exhibits hypocritical tendencies.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Rolfo: Zborris8, interesting to read that first hand info on how Nakamura prepares with Littlejohn and computers. I think this extended and deep computer approach can bring you a major share of progress but never all the way. Nakamura just started his upwards march about 2010, so it obviously helped him a lot. But for the sake of chess I hope there always will be more to chess than what computers can bring into it
Jun-28-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <Rolfo> We may be hopeful, but I am not optimistic: we have seen numerous cheating scandals already, featuring players of ~1900 strength here in USA, someone who was no stronger than your humble poster before he went to silicon assistance (Borislav Ivanov), all the way up to GM (Sebastien Feller).

Too many slime at any level who will use any edge to see their way home.

Jun-28-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  Rolfo: perfidious, yes shocking but true. But we have two perspectives here, those who prepare heavily by means of computers ( could be almost everyone), and those who tries to cheat during the play. The latter group is digraceful of course
Jun-28-14  bobthebob: <I hope there always will be more to chess than what computers can bring into it>

I didn't know that Carlsen has Ian N. as a second. So even at that level, they see value in having "mere" mortals to assist their prep.

Jun-28-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  Rolfo: bob, I might be wrong, but since London Chess Classic 2012 Magnus did not have Ian N as second or anything like that. Only offical helper during his match with Anand was John Ludvig Hammer who sat home coordinating input to Magnus. Only known helper in addition is Fressinet whos input was sent thru Hammer. Ian might be one of Magnus friends anyway
Jun-28-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  Kinghunt: <Rolfo> Hammer was the only <confirmed> second of Carlsen's. Carlsen was extremely tight-lipped, though - he almost certainly had more seconds we don't know about, potentially including Nepomniachtchi.
Jun-28-14  bobthebob: <Rolfo> This was from N's Chessgames page which also had info from 9/13. Maybe it is no longer true. This article has Carlsen mentioning "they" vs. "he" about his seconds and claims that Anand's team thought Ian was one of the seconds and that he was also a second during the Candidates.

http://www.firstpost.com/sports/the...

The point about Naka, is that I wonder if he would benefit a lot from having a second of N's caliber.

Jun-28-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <Rolfo> For a strong player to prepare without the use of computers in some fashion nowadays would be hopelessly naïve--as for the other, I've nothing to add to your statement.
Jun-29-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  Rolfo: To conclude, it's more likely than not that Ian N was one of Carlsen's stay behind men :)

As for computer use in chess today nothing to disagree upon. As said, I like to think that the human factor in man to man games/ matches still is the most important factor

Jun-29-14  zborris8: <Rolfo - human factor is most important>

Your topic reminds me of GM Cheparinov who found 12.Nxf7 OTB, deviating from the supercomputer preparation, with Topalov steering the course to victory:

Topalov vs Kramnik, 2008

Jul-06-14  zborris8: "GM Naiditsch reckoned that me playing the King's Indian against Anand was something akin to a samurai running at a machine gun with a sword." - Hikaru Nakamura

Which game is it?

Premium Chessgames Member
  shivasuri4: <zborris8>, this one: Anand vs Nakamura, 2011.
Jul-20-14  zborris8: <shivasuri4> Thanks for that! Incredible win.

I also found a rather entertaining video from someone called "kingscrusher" on YouTube. I think he explains the game rather well for my level, and he suddenly gets very enthusiastic when he's surprised by engine-checking Nakamura's threats, which is infectious:

  perfidious: <zborris8> That poster on YouTube would also be known hereabouts as <User: kingscrusher>. In real life, he is Tryfon Gavriel.

Very good player and, as you say, he does a fine job with his videos.

Jul-20-14  bobthebob: Thanks for the link to the kingcrusher videos - they are great.

I like this quote from Naka about the Anand game:

""I don't really have to find the difficult moves here. I attack, it if works, it works, if it doesn't, I lose horribly and look like an idiot.""
