U.S. CHAMPION Hikaru Nakamura, the reigning U.S. champion, who in May turned in an astonishing, near-3100 performance rating in the French league, will be at the U.S. Open!. The young grandmaster will play a simultaneous exhibition on Friday, August 7th at 1:00 p.m.
Reigning Women’s World Chess Champion Alexandra Kosteniuk has graciously agreed to compete for the title of “U.S. Open Champion” in Indianapolis, Indiana this August. This is the first time in history that a reigning woman’s world champion has ever played in the most prestigious of the U.S. Chess Federation’s open events.
The U.S. Open is the last adult tournament of its size where all play in one big section. There are attractive class prizes for every 200 point class down to “E” and unrated. The guaranteed $40,000 will become $50,000 if a total of at least 500 play!
