Black to play and win. Taylor missed it.
White to play and win. Lee found it.
In the absence of any worthwhile official website, we chess bloggers have had to step up to fill the void on U.S. Open news.... I have posted notes on two fantastic upsets from Round 4 (see diagrams above from one of them). And I have two notes on the New Jersey contingent: our own Mike Wojcio lost his first-round game (playing the five day schedule), but 14-year-old NJ master Evan Ju (featured here in May) is at 4.5/5 playing the nine day schedule (having taken a first-round half-point bye) which puts him near the top of the leader board.
Here are some other places you can look for U.S. Open Chess Championship reports:
Drew Groeger, "The Royal Game"
Discusses his own games and some of what's going on around him.
Ivan Wijetunge, "Getting to 2000"
Some games and commentary.
Heather Swan, "Heather Swan's Blog"
This candidate-A player has posted some good photos and game commentaries.
Brad Rosen, "64 Square Jungle"
The Chess Dad is on the scene...
Susan Polgar, "Susan Polgar Chess Blog"
Of course she is in Chicago, and count on the ubiquitous GM to let us know about everything she is doing chess-wise.
Jerry MacDonald, "Cast Out of Even"
Promises to bring his laptop and keep us posted, but so far has made only one small post on his first two losses....
Please let me know in the "Comments" area of any other U.S. Open chess sites or blogs you find.
