Nakamura Wins in Round 3, London Chess Classic 2016

Hikaru Nakamura had a loss for his birthday against Wesley So in Round 1, but he was able to deliver a loss for his opponent in Round 3 against Viswanthan Anand, who was also celebrating his birthday on that day. It seems to be a bad luck to be playing in the London Chess Classic on your birthday.
