The 2011 US Championships

The 2011 US Championship and Women's Championship is about to start in Saint Louis. This is the home page.

Last year the Saint Louis Chess Club and Scholastic Center hosted the championships, and ran live video commentary over the Web. It was very good. I hope they repeat. The commentators are listed as GM Maurice Ashley and WGM Jennifer Shahade. 

Last year WGM Shahade did a great job doing play by play and asking leading questions during the Junior and Women's Championships, and GM Ashley did great commentary on the US Championship. It looks like they are going to repeat the live coverage. If so, it should be here. The videos were also available for later viewing.

Games start at 2pm CDT on April 15. Pay your taxes and then tune in.

2pm Central Daylight Time is 19:00 GMT/UTC, I think
