Favorites GM Gata Kamsky and GM Irina Krush have repeated as U.S. men's and women's champions, with both winning three-way playoffs at the U.S. title tournaments in St. Louis Tuesday afternoon.
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:
On the women's side, it was GM Irina Krush also coming through in a playoff against WGM Tatev Abrahamyan to claim her third straight women's crown and sixth overall.
Although clearly the class of the American women's game right now, Krush said afterward, "This one was definitely hard. I felt like I had one obstacle after another."
