Story at US Chess Online. Congratulations to Gata Kamsky, a most worthy champion, and good luck against Veselin Topalov in next month's Candiates Match!
And double congratulations to Chicago's Yury Shulman, who showed once again that he's at the very top of American chess. He won the title in 2008, finished second in 2010, and second once again this year. Yury and Viktoria's son Gabriel was born this past Sunday.
