Red Wedding in Moscow

So why is GM Nakamura re-enacting the Red Wedding in the Tal Memorial?  His victims include four fellow top-ten players: Caruana, Kramnik, Karjakin, and Anand.

Lots of coverage on the web: Chess Life Online is a good place to begin.

Unfortunately, Nakamura lost two consecutive games after this was written - to Carlsen and Gelfand - and is now tied for third with 4.5/8.

Easy come, easy go. Nakamura "castled queenside" in the last three rounds (0-0-0) and finished with an even score.
