Grand Prix R8: Nakamura in sole lead after lucky win

After a few quiet days, the Grand Prix in Élancourt heated up again on Monday with four decisive games. Hikaru Nakamura was worse throughout his game, but defended well and even won as Vassily Ivanchuk lost on time in a drawn position. The American grandmaster is the sole leader now as Boris Gelfand lost to Fabiano Caruana. Alexander Grischuk won his white game against Anish Giri, and Etienne Bacrot won with Black against Ruslan Ponomariov. Tuesday is a rest day.
