It’s Saturday Open Forum.

Hikaru Nakamura just won his fourth tournament in a row. Impressive! Irina Krush made a wonderful comeback to finish with a +1 score at Corus C and Fabiano Caruana convincingly won Corus C by a 2 point margin. Magnus Carlsen shared 1st place with Levon Aronian in Corus A. This duo will be a force to be reckoned with for years to come.

The USCF President recently issued a statement that he expected the federation to lose at least $100,000 this year then tried to backtrack his statement after facing a series of criticism. The legal woes of the federation is far from over and the legal bills will continue to climb rapidly. I have documented some of the problems here. Nothing changed! The destructive politics that have hindered the USCF for a long time continue.

I am posting LIVE updates of the EB meeting today and tomorrow here and I will post a recap on http://uschess.blogspot.com/ later.

Super Bowl XLII is tomorrow. The incredibly strong Moscow Open starts today and some American players such as Kaidanov, Krush, Pruess and Friedel are there.

What would you like to discuss? The forum is yours.
