54th Reggio Emilia Grandmaster Tournament / Round 4

 

.

Hikaru Nakamura

.

Nakamura lashed out with yet another of his King’s Indian ‘Defense’ games.  There are few who ‘dare’ to play this at the ‘upper’ levels of chess, but he has had some credible success with this opening; this time at the expense of Anish Giri.
