Shulman in 2011 World Cup
The city of Khanty-Mansiysk, known to chess fans worldwide as Yugra's answer to Elista, will host the 2011 World Cup this coming August and September. The raw power of the invitees compensates for the unglamorous site. Our own Yury Shulman, 2009 U.S. Champion and runner-up to Kamsky in both 2010 and 2011, is one of seven invitees from the USA in the 128-player field. He's done very well in this event before!
