Anna Zatonskih defeats Shabalov in first round of US Championship

In a fantastic hair-raising struggle, Anna Zatonskih as black defeated
defending US Champion Shabalov in the first round of the US
Championship. It was a wide open game with both kings being chased
around the board.

That was the only major upset. Gata Kamsky, playing his first game at
traditional tournament speed since 1994, gave perhaps a premature draw
to Jesse Kraai.

The other pre-tournament favorite, Hikaru Nakamura, won when his
opponent, Stephen Mohammad, dropped a piece in a horrific blunder in a
position which would otherwise likely have been drawn.

The games can be viewed in a wonderful interface at
