Hikaru Nakamura wins Tradewise Gibraltar Masters

Hikaru NakamuraAmerican Grandmaster Hikaru Nakamura has won the 13th Tradewise Gibraltar Masters, which concluded at the Caleta Hotel on Thursday 5 February 2015.

Nakamura drew his last round game against Pentala Harikrishna (India) after a long struggle where white tried to convert an extra pawn in a theoretically hot rook ending.

Nakamura concluded the event with 8½/10 points to claim the top prize of £20,000 and become world #7 on the elo list.

David Howell, playing Black against Hou Yifan, could have reached 8½ had he won but, in trying to do so, overreached and was lost at one stage. Hou Yifan missed her best chance and the game was eventually drawn. Howell earned £16,000.

Hou Yifan was the clear winner of the women’s first prize of £15,000, additional to her prize for sharing third place. Sharing second through fifth women’s prizes were Rout Padmini (India), Anna Muzychuk (Ukraine), Ju Wenjun (China) and Antoaneta Stefanova (Bulgaria) 6½.
