Corus Round 1

For the next couple weeks, the eyes of the chess world will be on the Netherlands resort town of Wijk aan Zee.

Hikaru Nakamura and teenager Fabiano Caruana (Italy/Brooklyn) are playing in the A section (Carlsen, Anand, Kramnik, Ivanchuk...)  Two fan favorites won in round one: Loek van Wely (over Nigel Short) and Alexei Shirov (over Peter Leko).
