Hikaru Nakamura wins the 2017 Tradewise Gibraltar Masters
Congratulations to Hikaru Nakamura (USA), winner for the third year running of the Masters tournament at the 2017 Tradewise Gibraltar Chess Festival at the Caleta Hotel. Hikaru scored 8/10 (+6,=4) and then won a speed playoff 1½-½ defeating GM David Anton Guijarro (ESP) to take first prize. Ju Wenjun won the Women's prize and takes home £15,000.
Four-time womens world champion Hou Yifan, Queen of Chess, added some drama to the festival by conceding her last-round game after just five moves. The reason given for doing so was the "unbelievable and weird" pairings made throughout the event.
At the award ceremony, Nakamura received the winners cheque for £23,000 from Tradewise CEO James Humphreys.
The festival is sponsored by Tradewise Insurance Company Ltd. Visit the Gibraltar Chess Congress website for more information.
