The US women's chess championship will start in a week, on October 3, 2009 in Saint Louis.

As the organizers say during this event one will be able to find everything that he/she can be interested in, from exciting games to Jazz concert.

On October 3 the defending women's chess champion Anna Zatonskih will give a blindfolded simultaneous exhibition on 5 boards! About more exciting events during the championship, visit this page -

The round-robin format means that all players face each other once over nine playing days. The final playing day, Oct. 13, will include a tiebreaker game, if necessary, to determine a winner. All games are open to the public. For more information, call the Chess Club at 314-361-2437. The tournament is sanctioned by the U.S. Chess Federation.
