He was the winner of the 2011 edition ofTata Steel Group A, and represented the US at five Chess Olympiads, winning a team gold and two team bronzes. He has also written a book called Bullet Chess: One Minute to Mate. At age 10, Nakamura became the youngest player to achieve the title of Chess Master from the USCA (the record stood until 2008 when Nicholas Nip achieved the title at 9 years and 11 months.)
