US-Meisterschaften: Shulman und Akobian weiter in Führung
Nach einem Remis im Spitzenspiel der beiden Führenden hat sich an der Tabellenspitze (4,5/6) bei den US-Meisterschaften in Saint Louis keine Veränderung ergeben. Auch die Verfolgerduelle zwischen Onischuk und Nakamura bzw. Kamsky und Hess fanden keinen Sieger. Zu ganzen Punkten kamen Friedel und Benjamin, die dadurch in die Verfolgergruppe (4/6) aufrückten. Irina Krush, die nach dem Ausscheiden von Anna Zatonskih nun die einzige Frau im 24-köpfigen Feld ist, gelang ein hübscher Sieg im Theorieduell gegen Julio Beccero. Die einstige Wortführerin im Internet-Duell Kasparov vs. The World verbesserte sich dadurch auf Platz 13.

Act of Sportsmanship

The U.S. Championship is being played in a spirit of sportsmanship and professionalism throughout, and this could be witnessed in the pairing between U.S. Women's champion Woman's Grandmaster Anna Zatonskia and Grandmaster Gregory Kaidanov from Kentucky, another of the top seeds.

Due to a minor ailment, WGM Zatonskih, the only mother in the 24-player field on Mother's Day, had to attend St. Louis University Hospital for treatment for a minor ailment. Unfortunately this meant she was unable to play her round three game and would have had to automatically forfeit the loss to her opponent without a move being played - but, in a true act of sportsmanship, Kaidanov - who could easily have claimed a win by default - magnanimously offered to postpone their match-up until the official rest day on Friday, when they will both play catch-up on the day the rest of the field are on a break.
