The #1 US player Hikaru Nakamura has a new and exciting sponsor: Redbull. "Always try to win at all costs", he says on his page on the Redbull website. 

Nakamura is currently the #8 player in the World, and will play in the Vugar Gashimov Memorial (Shamkir, Azerbaijan, April 20-30), along with World Champion Magnus Carlsen and Fabiano Caruana. In a chess.com interview with Peter Doggers, Nakamura says "he is optimistic" about the Gashimov Memorial. He also talks more about his preparation and his relationship with Redbull: "I think working with Red Bull might give chess more exposure; it's a first step in changing the image.”
