Chess Blog for Daily Chess News and Trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2013

Hi everyone, 

The super-strong chess tournament in the US, the Sinquefield Chess Cup reaches its climax today in the final round: GM Hikaru Nakamura, GM Levon Aronian and GM Magnus Carlsen all have chances at winning the inaugural tournament!
Both games were drawn on Saturday: Magnus Carlsen (3.5/5) - Hikaru Nakamura (3.0/5) and Levon Aronian (2.5/5) - Gata Kamsky (1.0/5). All three - Nakamura, Aronian and Carlsen have a chance to win the title.

Yes, before we forget, US No. 1 Hikaru Nakamura turned up with shades for his game against Carlsen like he had done for the first game against the world No. 1 in Round 3! We received an interesting article on the subject via Does Chess Prodigy World No. 1 practice chess hypnotism? We're not commenting on it, but you just might enjoy reading it. ;)
