Gata Kamsky and Hikaru Nakamura both advanced to the final sixteen contenders at the World Cup in Tromso, Norway.  Both won their matches in the classical portion and get a rest day tomorrow, while their opponents are still undetermined, to be decided in playoff matches. Nakamura will play the winner of Daniil Dubov-Anton Korobov while Kamsky faces the victor in Shakhriyar Mamedyarov- Wei Yi.

Gata Kamsky won with Black against Norweigian GM Jon Ludwig Hammer, finding the key defensive in-between move 17...Nb4!

Hammer tweeted:
Kamsky drew with White in the second round to secure his advancement into the sweet sixteen.
