Since Macauley Peterson's Wednesday article, Nakamura and Kamsky Looking for a WAZ win, GM Hikaru Nakamura has notched two wins in a row. He now has a plus score at Tata Steel Chess (January 13-29, Wijk aan Zee) with 3.5/6. First he defeated David Navara and today, Boris Gelfand.
Levon Aronian leads with 4.5/6 while US Champion Gata Kamsky stands with 2/6.
