The 73rd Tata Steel Chess Tournament 2011 took place Friday 14th to Sunday, January 30th, 2011, in the traditional "De Moriaan" venue in Wijk aan Zee. The event which has taken place since 1938 will carry a new name, that of Tata Steel, they bought Corus a number of years ago.

Players included: World Number One Magnus Carlsen (last year's winner), reigning world champion Viswanathan Anand and his predecessor Vladimir Kramnik. Levon Aronian and Alexander Grischuk also rook places in the A-Group but Veselin Topalov did not. In addition Anish Giri, Jan Smeets and a surprise choice in Erwin L'Ami have were chosen as the Dutch representatives.

Hikaru Nakamura took first place for his first win in a super-tournament. World Champion Viswanathan Anand was half a point further back. Magnus Carlsen and Levon Aronian shared 3rd.

Nakamura wins Tata Steel tournament in Wijk aan Zee (13)

Hikaru Nakamura won his first super-tournament with 9/13 half a point clear of World Chess Champion Viswanathan Anand. The final round saw all the games drawn. This looks likely to be just staging point on a career at the very top and Nakamura stated that his next target is passing the 2800 rating barrier currently surpassed by only Magnus Carlsen, Anand and Levon Aronian. Carlsen and Aronian had to settle for shared 3rd place and although neither seemed at their very best both will also gain rating points. 16 year old Anish Giri's 50% and a real quality to his play also is surely just at the start of his elite career.
