GM Alex Yermolinsky makes his debut by highlighting the US Chess League Game of the Week winner for the opening matches. Here the top players for New Jersey and New York treat the fifth rank like the Hudson River - the first one to cross better be sure of his ability to get to the other side. GM Joel Benjamin shows more flexibility than a yoga master, threatening pawn advances on the kingside, center and queenside. In the end, the Knights suffer a Knockout.
