Nine year old chess player Hikaru Nakamura has acquired the habit of winning. He is already a national champion, having won the 1996 National Third Grade Championship in Terra Haute, Indiana, but he will not rest. His latest feat is unprecedented - in the Greater New York Elementary School Championships, he won the Primary Championship and the Elementary Championship on two successive days, with a perfect score in both events! This amazing accomplishment won special "stop the press" notice from Empire Chess magazine editor Carrie Goldstein. Hikaru is the younger brother of another chess star, eleven year old Asuka, and the stepson of chess coach (and author ) Sunil Weeramantry. Hikaru started playing tournament chess in January 1995, at the Junior Chess Congress East in Stamford. He learned the game on his own, picking up the moves from having been around chess players. In October 1995, with his rating in the 700s, he competed in NSCF tournaments in Greenburgh, White Plains, Greenwich, and Hunter and won five tournaments in a row, with a 20-0 score! By the end of the national tournaments the following spring, his rating had risen to the mid-1300s - a tremendous jump. In the 1996 National Elementary Championships, while listed as 1195, he defeated three players rated over 1500. A sixth round win would have forced a pairing against Asuka, even though they played for the same school, Ridgeway Elementary in White Plains. But the brothers were spared such a dramatic confrontation when Hikaru lost to third-seeded Cindy Tsai of Florida.

US Championships 2004 Qualification Info Sponsors The Specifics ... Archive IM Hikaru Nakamura International Master Hikaru Nakamura was born on December 9, 1987, in Hirakata City, Osaka Prefecture, Japan and moved to the United States when he was two years old. He began playing chess at the age of seven and a half and reached the level of National Master within a mere two and a half years. He holds the national record for being the youngest American ever to earn the master title, which he achieved at the age of 10 years and 79 days. Hikaru has represented the United States at the World Youth Championships in each of the last 5 years: Cannes, France (1997), and Oropesa, Spain (1998-2001). He posted his best result this past year with an 8 ½ - 2 ½ score in the Boys 14 and under division, winning 2 nd place and the silver medal. Hikaru has eight national scholastic championships to his credit, the most recent being the 2001 K-12 High School Championships in Kansas City, Missouri. In 2001, at the age of 13, he became the U.S. Junior Champion by winning the U.S. Junior Invitational in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In January 2002, Hikaru posted his best international result to date in winning the Bermuda GM Invitational, a Category 10 event. His 6-3 score was sufficient to earn his first GM norm. As recently as December 2002, Hikaru scored his second GM norm at the very strong 4th “Immortals” tournament in the Dominique Republic; finishing equal second with Peter Svidler, and ahead of former world championship challenger Nigel Short. He hopes to continue his record-setting ways as he pursues a career in chess. He also had success at the 2002 Continental Open where he defeated three grandmasters to finish first.

Hikaru Nakamura makes master at 10 years, 2 months
The Marshall Chess Club was once again host to another record-breaking event. At the club's weekly Thursday Night Action Tournament of February 26th, Hikaru Nakamura, who already set the record for becoming the youngest player to defeat an International Master in a tournament game when he defeated IM Jay Bonin at the Club's "Last Blunder of 1997" action tournament on December 31st (see previous posting), made chess history once again. Hikaru, who is only ten years and two months old but has already become a veteran Marshall Chess Club tournament competitor, achieved an official USCF rating of 2203 at the end of the February 26th tournament, making him the youngest player ever to earn a Master rating.
Asuka Nakamura
Hikaru Nakamura and his similarly strong (and not much older) brother Asuka have one tremendous advantage. It so happens that their step-father, Sunil Weeramantry, has, for more than 20 years, been America's leading scholastic chess teacher and trainer. They will never have to spend money for grandmaster training. It all comes in-house.

Hikaru Nakamura, age 12, scores sensational draw on Board One of New York Open Chess Championship
NEW YORK: May 5: Hikaru Nakamura who, two years ago, became the youngest USCF rated chess master in history, has scored a surprising upset by drawing on board one against Grandmaster Epishin of Russia. Round one pairings feature the top half playing against the bottom half and, due to the luck of the pairing process, Hikaru Nakamura was paired as black on board one against Grandmaster Epishin, one of the strongest players in the world, who has a rating of 2667.
Hikaru Nakamura faces Grandmaster Epishin on Board One of New York Open
Hikaru Nakamura got a cramped game and fell well behind in development, as a result of which most of the spectators felt that he had no chance to survive. However, Nakamura dug in and made it as difficult as possible for his grandmaster opponent to make progress. The spectators, which included many grandmasters, were astounded when Epishin was simply unable to push his passed pawn through to make a queen and agreed to a draw after five hours of play. Hikaru Nakamura is rated 2313 by the United States Chess Federation and is rated more than 200 points higher than any player of his age group. Hikaru Nakamura is also by far the strongest chess player in the world who is a citizen of Japan, even though he is only 12 years old.

earns his first
Grandmaster norm
(January 2002)

Fourteen year old IM Hikaru Nakamura
has just earned a Grandmaster norm in the Bermuda International "GM-A" tournament, January 21-30, 2002.
Hikaru qualified by scoring 6-3 against a Category 10 field (average FIDE rating 2500), tying for first place. The players he faced in the 9-player round-robin included five Grandmasters and four International Masters. His performance rating for the event was 2633. Hikaru started out at a blistering pace, defeating three Grandmasters in the first 3 rounds, and leading the field with a score of 5-1 by the end of round 6. Hikaru played "flat out" throughout the tournament, and was never afraid to mix it up. See the results and games here. Hikaru's first round win against GM Alexandre Lesiege is an especially fine game. See that game in Robert Byrne's Chess column at the New York Times website.
Hikaru also competed in the traditional blitz tournament, finishing clear second ahead of a number of Grandmasters. Never weary, Hikaru then competed in the Bermuda Open, winning an exciting game against "The Week in Chess" reporter John Fernandez. See the annotations in this report - the move 16.Rxf7!! is amazing. In the last round, Hikaru was on Board 1, but lost to Swedish IM Emannuel Berg (2500) in a hard-fought struggle which was the last game to finish in the whole tournament.

(February 25, 2001)

Thirteen year old Hikaru Nakamura has earned his final International Master(IM) norm!

He is now an IM elect, and the title may be granted as early as the FIDE Presidential Commission meeting at the end of March in Cannes, France. When it is, he will be the youngest American International Master ever! The record is currently held by Vinay Bhat, who made IM in April, 2000 at the age of 15 years and 10 months.
Hikaru made it look easy , earning the title in a span of only two months, in three consecutive tournaments. Here's how he did it.
Norm #1
. Hikaru earned his first norm in the VIII "Anibal" Open tournament in Linares, Spain, January 8-18. In Linares, Hikaru qualified by scoring 6.5-4.5, again against a Category 7 field (average FIDE rating 2419). The players he faced in the 161-player open included two Grandmasters and seven International Masters. The overall field included 37 GMs and 60 IMs.

Brazilian GM Giovanni Vescovi won the A section in Bermuda in impressive style, but it was 15-year-old Hikaru Nakamura of White Plains, New York, who was the big story making his third and final GM norm. In doing so Hikaru broke Bobby Fischer's 44-year-old record as the youngest American Grandmaster. Hikaru, who was only half a point from GM norms in Bolivia and San Francisco last year, is well on his way to bigger and better things. We look for him to be crossing the 2600 FIDE barrier shortly. Congratulations also go to chief sponsor Nigel Faulks and chief organizer Nigel Freeman for again putting on a first rate chess festival. GMA Final Standings: 1. Vescovi, Giovanni g BRA 2592 8.0; 2.

AUGUST 6 2002
Things were looking great this Tuesday at the NY Masters. The weather was perfect and the club had installed a brand new air conditioner which worked wonders. You have to be happy about the new AC and the addition of the water cooler at the Marshall Chess Club. We had a lot of new players again this week, and some very strong ones at that. GM Alex Sherzer joined the fray along with IM’s Hikaru Nakamura and Rashid Ziatdinov. Rounding out the new players was NM Brian Hulse and a French player Jose-Claude de Sousa (2306 FIDE). We had 6 GMs and 8 IMs in the field, although we seem to be getting used to such turnouts. Notable about this tournament was the first time first place reached $500, so that would be a nice payday for a few hours of playing chess. GM Leonid Yudasin
