London Chess Classic 2014: Hikaru Nakamura wins Super RapidPlay

Hello chess blog friends,  another chess event from the London Chess Classic 2014 - GM Hikaru Nakamura of the USA won the London Super Rapidplay Open with an outstanding score of 9½/10, having conceded just the one draw in the sixth round to Matthew Sadler.

Second on his own, a full point behind Nakamura on 8½, was Anish Giri of the Netherlands. Ten players shared third place on 8 points: Fabiano Caruana (Italy), Vishy Anand (India), Vladimir Kramnik (Russia), Nigel Short, Nick Pert and Simon Williams (all England), Alex Lenderman and Daniel Naroditsky (both USA), Eric Hansen (Canada), and Alon Greenfeld (Israel).Hikaru Nakamura, runaway winner of the Super Rapidplay Open with 9½/10, starts the 2014 London Chess Classic the way he left off in 2013.

You can find a detailed report and lots of photos at the official website. For now, can you name who's who in this Super RapidPlay photo?
