No surprise that GM Perelshteyn's final "gem" from the 2012 US Championship is yet another brilliancy by the player who won the tournament, Super-GM Hikaru Nakamura! Here Hikaru employs an "old school" variation against the French (2.f4) to take advantage of his un-prepared opponent. A positional masterpiece ends with fireworks as Nakamura finds all the right moves to win the title with style!
