US Championship 2015 - Round 11

Opening: C55: Scotch gambit

Player(s): Onischuk, Nakamura

GM Ronen Har-Zvi recaps round 11. 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 Onishuk, in a pretty amazing way. The game looked like a draw, 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 natioanal 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, winnning her 7th Championship title. Congratulations to the champions!
