Hikaru Nakamura: To put it mildly, not the greatest of days – Chess 9LX Day 1 recap

After yesterday’s bad start at the Champions Showdown 9LX tournament in the Saint Louis Chess Club, Hikaru Nakamura made a video recap of his three games. Hikaru lost to Shakhriyar Mamedyarov after an interesting situation when Shakh asked the arbiter if he can castle in the game, and in the third round suffered a loss to Ian Nepomniachtchi. Defeating Garry Kasparov in a thrilling game where both players had missed chances, Hikaru scored 1/3 points and finished in 8th place after the Day 1. “Not the greatest of days, to put it mildly. Send more energy!!” wrote Nakamura on his twitter account. See his Day 1 recap down below
