Drawing Nakamura

Mar 13, 2011, 4:04 PM |

Hikaru Nakamura is currently ranked eighth in the world and, many believe, has an excellent chance at becoming the first American world champion since Fischer.  The secret to avoid losing to such a talent is simple: play him when he's nine years old.  
Roughly a year after this game was played Nakamura became the youngest master in U.S. history.  Today he sits on the cusp of immortality while I bask in the glow of drawing a potential future world champ.
