Naka wins his 4th! Krush wins her 7th!

U.S. Chess Championship

Gibraltar, Zurich and now the US Championship. So far, it's been Hikaru's year. Hikaru conquered the US Championship by winning round 11 against Alexander Onischuk, in a pretty amazing way. The game looked drawn, and everyone knows how solid Onischuk is in such positions. But the old lion miscalculated in a drawish endgame, and nobody can allow himself that when playing the number 3 in the world. Robson did his part, beating Timur Gareev in a crazy game, and until Onishuck's blunder, we were all preparing for the playoffs. Nakamura said that the tournament wasn't easy for him: when playing much lower rated opponents, you need to push it hard and try to win every game. But Hikaru was able to play well, and grabbed his fourth national title. Welsey So, once again, showed he wasn't affected too much by the incident in round 9, and won against Troff. Irina Krush, after an up-and-down tournament, managed to draw the last game against Nemcova, winning her 7th Championship title. Congratulations to the champions!

ICC videos

One of the great benefits of ICC (apart from all the top-notch online play and tournaments) in recent years has been the upgrade in our popular video and broadcast service - many members agree that the live Radio commentary plus GOTDs from our elite tournament coverage, and our regular weekly shows alone is worthy of their membership fee.
