Zurich Chess challenge 2015 - Round 3

Opening: A33: English: symmetrical

Player(s): Nakamura, Karjakin

GM Jon Speelman recaps Round 3. The highlight of the day is without doubt Nakamura's win over Karjakin, in a "magnificently messy game", as Jon Speelman called it. The victory not only leads Hikaru to stand alone on top of the standings, but - perhaps even more importantly - makes him the 10th player ever to break the 2800 barrier. In the LIVE rating list, Nakamura shows a shiny 2802.5 stellar rating now, and the 4th place in the world. The other two games ended in a draw, with Anand playing pretty well against Caruana, showing he's in good form again. With two rounds to go - the score system used assigns 2 points for a win and one point for a draw - Nakamura sails solo on top with 5 points, followed by a very good Anand with 4, then Kramnik with 3 and Caruana, Aronian and Karjakin with 2.
