US Championship

The 8th round is underway (live coverage at official site and elsewhere). GM Varuzhan Akobian is the current leader (5 points), followed by defending champ GM Gata Kamsky (4.5).

There are 11 rounds total (last round on Monday), with playoffs on Tuesday (if necessary). The Women’s championship (9 rounds) is being played at the same time (they are on round 7 today). IM Anna Zatonskih is in first (5), followed by defending champ GM Irina Krush (4.5). Notice a pattern?

    There is a good chance Kamsky will not repeat. Akopian and Lenderman are tied for 1st going into the last round. They are paired against each other. I rina Krush has a chance to repeat as she is tied for 1st going into Monday’s final round. Hey I noticed the pattern.
