Dr. Alexey Root just reported on CLO that GMs Julio Beccera, Alex Yermolinsky, Jesse Kraai, John Fedorowicz, and IM Dean Ippolito have tied for first at the US Championship Qualifier in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Since GM Beccera already qualified for the US Championship by rating, the other four players will now have a spot in the upcoming US Championship. Nine players tied for 6th place and the top three by tie breaks would qualify for the US Championship as well and they are Ludwig, Shankland, and Pruess.
Congratulations to all!
