  • In our February issue, GM Hikaru Nakamura blitzed his way to the 2018 Grand Chess Tour (GCT) championship, making him the second American to win the title in its four year history. In our cover story, GM Robert Hess writes about Nakamura's success at the London Chess Classic, home to the final leg of the GCT. GM Alex Ipatov analyzes openings from the London Classic as well. Also look for the popular April Fools puzzles from GM Pal Benko, a report on the K-12 Nationals by GM Elshan Moradiabadi, and the 2018 Yearbook. Please note that the print edition of the yearbook inadvertently omitted the U.S. Masters tournament and did not updae the executive board list. The full yearbook with these corrections can be found here: 2018 Yearbook.
