"Gareyev Hot in Chicago"

Photo: Betsy Dynako

So does the Chicago Open winner prefer the English transliteration "Gareev" (per Wikipedia, which is never wrong, and by analogy with Russian supergrandmaster Bareev) or Gareyev (per USCF)?  Nice article by Jamaal Abdul-Alim at Chess Life Online with several key games.

And here's a photo gallery by Betsy Dynako, and a mid-tournament story featuring GM Pentala Harikrishna.

Last but not least, USCF's Member Services Area has already rated the event: kudos to them!
