US Championship 2015 - Round 8

Opening: A62: Benoni: fianchetto variation

Player(s): Troff, Nakamura

GM Joel Benjamin recaps round 8. Nakamura got back his solo leadership, running over Troff like a steamroller, while Robson drew with a good Shankland and So lost with Holt. Probably So knows that Nakamura is going to win a lot of games during this tournament, and he takes more risks trying to keep pace with the super-strong Hikaru; in any way, with his third defeat So is probably out of competition for the title, and Nakamura seems to be launched toward his fourth championship. Naroditsky, who is having a nightmarish tournament, lost to Onischuk, and Gareev - finally playing a solid and well known opening - won convincingly against young Sevian. Akobian and Kamsky drew in 27 move in a Grunfeld. After 8 rounds, and with three rounds to go, Nakamura leads with 6 points, followed by Robson with 5.5; one point behind Robson - at 4.5 - Kamsky, So and Onischuk.
