U.S. Championship Playoffs at 10 a.m.

Live coverage at uschesschamps.com.

Black has draw odds.  The players bid for choice of color by giving up minutes: the low bidder gets choice of color (Black, I'd assume!) and the reduced minutes.  White gets 60 minutes.

This seems weird to me: another way to do it would be to have one player (chosen by coin toss) choose the reduced time for Black, then have the other player pick the color.
