DETROIT (AP) — The U.S. women's chess champion is to play simultaneous matches against 50 children at the Detroit Institute of Arts.
Kudos to U.S. women's national champion Irina Krush, who earned her first grandmaster norm at the strong recent open tournament in Baku, Azerbaijan.
There were some upstart contenders banging on the door, but in the end, it was a pair of familiar names at the top of the wall chart at the U.S. national and women's championships, which finished up last week at the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of St. Louis.
For some reason, the dog days of summer are among the busiest on the international chess calendar. Take a week off, and the news can really pile up:
Krush, who claimed her fifth national title with an 8-1 score, may have clinched things in her tense win over Zatonskih, who in the end would finish in second, a half-point behind.
