Nakamura leads Tal

Four rounds have been played in the Tal Memorial and Nakamura has three straight wins (2 of them with the black pieces), good enough for an outright lead of the tournament. His latest victim was Caruana (who was coming off a great win against Magnus Carlsen in round 3). It’s still early, but right now Hikaru has a 2968 performance rating. You would have to be named Houdini and made out of silicon to not be impressed with that.

    Nakamura is now 5th on the Live Fide Rating ahead of World Champion Anand. An impressive victory today. Will Nakamura be able to solve the Carlsen riddle in this tournament?
