Let the Chess King Show begin!

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,

Here is a nice chess game by one of the youngest and talented grandmasters of our times - GM Anish Giri. Though, at the losing end was another talented grandmaster - none other than GM Hikaru Nakamura - who ran out of gas (according to self admission on twitter) in the final half of the recently-concluded Reggio Emilia Chess Event. Sit back, and let the Chess King Show begin.

Nakamura, Hikaru (2758) - Giri, Anish (2714)

Result: 0-1
Site: Reggio Emilia ITA
