US Chess Championship in St Louis
This one right here is about the St Louis Chess Championships.
Nakumura and others are so gifted. But it was in round 1 that Nakumura friggin' drew with the Xiaong a promising young lad. Nakumura fought him well but in the end it was a draw. It was much to my surprise these were going on. With the most stacked March I have seen in a long time. March is always packed full of everything. April seems to be no different.
The Championships are still going on. And Nakumura is a player I did not know until the beginning of last year. I am familiarized with the legendary Karlsson but not really Nakumura. What an intellect! I think he has the chops to win the whole thing.
And let's flip course to Anna Shetrevoik . She had an unbelievable comeback in Day 1. I watched a solid 3 hours of live Chess. She has the mustard to go to the distance in the Women's Championship.
