Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hello everybody,

The US Chess Championships are at an interesting stage both in the men's and women's sections. Five rounds have been played. Defending champion Gata Kamsky and Yuri Shulman lead jointly in the A group while Robert Hess is in clear first in Group B. With four consecutive wins, Irina Krush has taken sole lead in the women's section just half a point ahead of Sabina Foisor.

Like last year, there’s a daily live show with GM Maurice Ashley and WGM Jennifer Shahade, produced by Macauley Peterson, including trivia, polls, viewer questions and lots of prizes given away.
