Hi everyone,

There were some great games at the 2012 U.S. Chess Championship on Tuesday in Round 7. IM Anna Zatonskih beat WIM Iryna Zenyuk in a bishop-and-pawn endgame. This helped her draw level with the leader of the tournament IM Irina Krush.

Nakamura and Shulman played the longest game of the tournament. After five and a half hours and 101 moves, they were down to just their kings. 

You can read a complete and nice report by FM Mike Klein at the official website with games.
