The 2009 US Chess Championships are finally under way. Two rounds have been played so far and three players are in the lead with 2/2 - grandmasters Kamsky and Shulman along with IM Hess. Ex-Pinoy IM Sevillano is on one point.
I've gotta say, the video wrap-ups featuring Jennifer Shahade and Macauley Peterson are absolutely fantastic. Folks can also follow proceedings via Twitter and listen to podcasts on Chess.FM.
