Khanty World Cup 2.2: Naka out as Firouzja stars

Hikaru Nakamura is out of the 2019 FIDE World Cup after Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu not only held on for a draw but was close to a second win. The day’s comebacks were instead for Wei Yi, who defeated David Anton, and Eltaj Safarli, who was rewarded for playing the Evans Gambit when 15-year-old Nihal Sarin blundered in time pressure. Only Nisipeanu and Xu Xiangyu (who beat Ernesto Inarkiev) are surprises among the 17 players already through to Round 3, but top seed Ding Liren and 2nd seed Anish Giri are among the 30 players facing tiebreaks today.
