Meet the world’s wealthiest chess player. Multiple sources estimate 34-year-old chess player Hikaru Nakamura’s fortune at around $50 million (or €47.3 million).
Nakamura has this weird duality about him. On one side, he seems like a nice enough guy. Slightly socially awkward, but not without a certain swagger and charisma. He has over a million followers on both Twitch and YouTube, so there’s obviously something more to him than just being an incredibly strong chess player.
