Long interview with GM Nakamura

You can read the whole thing at ChessVibes. Some highlights:

1. He spends a lot of time in Italy, with his chess-playing girlfriend. Hopefully the US will not lose him like we did Caruana.

2. It is very unlikely he’ll continue playing (high-level tournament) chess once he turns 40.

3. His next tournament is the Vugar Gashimov memorial, from April 19-30. He’s playing in the A section, a 6 player double round-robin featuring World Champ GM Carlsen (aka Sauron), Caruana, Karjakin, Mamedyarov, and Radjabov.

4. He has just signed a sponsorship deal with Red Bull.

There’s more, but you should read it yourself.
