Hello everyone,

After his first round loss to Magnus Carlsen, Hikaru Nakamura went on to win his second round game against Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu thanks to some help from the latter. Meanwhile First-round winners Magnus Carlsen and Vassily Ivanchuk drew their game and so did Teimour Radjabov and Sergey Karjakin.

The Kings Tournament is taking place from June 11-21 at the Natural Gas Documentation and Information Centre in Medias, Romania. Magnus Carlsen, Vassily Ivanchuk, Sergey Karjakin, Hikaru Nakamura, Teimour Radjabov and Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu would be playing a double round-robin with one rest day after five rounds. Games start 15.30 local time (14.30 CET).
