In the latest interview with Hikaru Nakamura, we see a more mature and refined persona of one of the world’s top players. Fading are the visions of his internet days and comments about his ability to excel only at blitz. He has certainly proven himself an equal amongst the world’s elite. Nakamura discusses his beginnings, his evolution and how his training has differed. More recently he has contracted the training services of GM Artur Kogan and he speaks about his reasons for his choice. He also makes some interesting comments about Carlsen. This interview is a refreshing look at the 25-year old American star and may show that he has a much more informed view than people believe.
