Congratulations to IM Anna Zatonskih
U.S. Women’s Chess Champion
With a round yet to go, IM Anna Zatonskih has clinched her second consecutive U.S. Women’s Championship by having a Fischeresque performance.
In the eight rounds played so far, she has seven victories and a lone draw, to WGM Camilla Baginskaite. IM Irina Krush, after a slow start, has rebounded and is in a tie for second place with Baginskaite, both two points behind Zatonskih.
Congratulations to all of the competitors in this hard-fought championship!
