Gene Nakauchi in Japan League

Queensland's FM Gene Nakauchi is in Japan to participate in the Japan Chess League tournament. The event will run from tomorrow until next Sunday, 16 August. More familiar to our foreign readers, however, is one GM Hikaru Nakamura. The American superstar looks like he'll be playing there, too, and is of course the top seed! In fact, it seems like it's not the first time that Naka has played in this event. He was there last year at about the same time.

For details (and only if you can read Japanese, I suppose) go to the Japan Chess Association website.

My thanks to Graeme Gardiner for this information.
