August 18, 2013
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.

In round three, Nakamura scored 2-0 against GM Baskaran Adhiban of India. His second round win featured a pretty exchange sacrifice, 24.Ne5, followed by invasion with king and knight.


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.
