GM Yury Shulman just captured his first US Championship. IM Anna Zatonskih captured her second US Women’s Championship by winning the dramatic Armageddon playoff over the defending US Women’s Champion IM Irina Krush.
GM Ivanchuk won the 2008 prestigious Mtel by 1.5 point over the defending champion GM Topalov. It was one of the most impressive performances in chess history.
There is still no news about the Topalov – Kamsky match. I hope everything can be worked out as I am excited to see this match between 2 great players with contrasting styles.
