St. Louis R&B, Day 5: Nakamura does it again

Hikaru Nakamura has followed up victory in Paris by winning the St. Louis Rapid and Blitz and almost guaranteeing himself a place in the Grand Chess Tour final in London. He did it with victory in the penultimate round over Shakhriyar Mamedyarov, after the two players engaged in another neck-and-neck chase. Maxime Vachier-Lagrave remained the blitz top dog, beating both Mamedyarov and Nakamura, but had to settle for 2nd place both in St. Louis and on the live rating list, where he finished just 2.2 points behind Magnus Carlsen.
