IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: HIKARU NAKAMURA - CHESS GRANDMASTER

Rate this Entry

OK, this kid is smart. REALLY smart. Hikaru Nakamura, a Japanese native, achieved the title of chess master from the US Chess Federation in 1998 at the age of 10. He was the youngest American ever to achieve that title. In 2003, at the age of 15, he broke Bobby Fischer's record by becoming the youngest American grandmaster ever. Among his skills, he's considered one of the best "blitz" chess players in the world.

    I'm not sure it's accurate to call Nakamura an immigrant. He was born in Japan of a Japanese father and an American mother. I believe that he was therefore a US citizen at birth.

    One doesn't necessarily get citizenship in the US by virtue of having an American parent. Fairly strict residency tests need to be met. It's often the case that a child must come in as a permanent resident.
