Zurich Chess challenge 2015 - Round 1

Opening: D47, B90: QGD: semi-Slav, Sicilian: Najdorf

Player(s): Aronian, Karjakin, Caruana, Nakamura

GM Ronen Har-Zvi recaps Round 1. Nakamura continues his amazing streak, winning a good game with Fabiano Caruana in the first round of this short but tense tournament. Six of the best players in the world are in Zuroch, Switzerland, to replace Magnus Carlsen as holder of the title of this almost-classic event. The two former world champions, anand and Kramnik, drew a quiet game, in a Queen Gambit Declined, positional line with 6.Qc2. Aronian Karjakin was much more a fight over the board, which ended in a draw, but an interesting one. With the strange score - 2 points for a win and 1 point for a draw - Nakamura leads solo with 2 points, followed one point behind by everyone else but Caruana. In the live rating list, Nakamura is at his highest with a stunning 2997.6, only 2.4 points shy from becoming one of the few elite players to break the 2800 barrier.
