U.S. Championships 2019

[yt_dropcap type="square" font="" size="14" color="#000" background="#fff" ] T [/yt_dropcap]he U.S. Championship upgrade a lot after the new arrivals, top grandmasters as...

Leinier Dominguez, Wesley So and of course the great Fabiano Caruana! Americans know how to market his country and improve something. Indeed, they have done great work. Personally, I love to to see tournaments and competitions which take place in America.

 

Some time ago they offer to Fabiano and So the American citizenship. In this way, they are not only improving the strength of his national team but at the same time he boost up the quality of the USA championship, am I right?

 

America is the country of the stock market and they know much better than others how to invest in something that will give them more value in the long term.

 

The 2019 U.S. Championship is an elite national championship event and it's taking place these days at Saint Louis Chess Club. It started at 18th of March and will be and at April 1.

 

12 players are fighting each other in a Round Robin chess tournament; every player will play with all of other participants.

 

Please also notice that the price funds are very high, $ 194,000.

Oh my gosh, in the picture he looks really ugly... Timur Gareev is a 31 years old Grandmaster. He's very strong on chess but very poor on dressing... He chooses very weird shirts which get the attraction in a negative way... The website Rules Chess Strategies cannot suggest anything really good in order to improve his game however we can suggest him to buy one color shirts. Usually I prefer blue it's really cool color.

We can see clearly that the tournament number one player, Caruana, didn't the performed so well so far, so the World Champion and Grandmaster Magnus Carlsen says in Twitter

 

[yt_blockquote title="Magnus Carlsen" align="left" width="100" color="#0022ff" border="#ccc" ] When your winless streak matches your age #goals #Caruana" [/yt_blockquote]

 

Probably he would like to tease Fabi, who is in bad form.
