GataWorldCup.jpgThe World Cup is underway in Tromso, Norway (August 11-September 5). Nine Americans are playing in the 128-player single elimination knockout event, including World #8 Hikaru Nakamura and US Champion Gata Kamsky. Our players scored 4/9 in round 1. Ray Robson's win over Ukrainian GM Andrei Volokitin was a highlight. See all nine games below and look for an onsite report by GM Ian Rogers after the first round matches are over.
