In the open section, the Philippines won ahead of Ukraine. Italy and
Japan must be disappointed with their performance, although they could
catch up with Armenia in the final round.

Romania conquered the women's title, overcoming long-time leader Georgia
in the final round. Ukraine took a clear 3rd.

That's America--someone should tell the Donald.

Cheers,
Rainer

I see your point, but if you listen to these guys and gals speak you'll know that they are echt Americans. No one in his right mind would call Nakamura a Japanese.

I admit that Caruana and Nakamura are true Americans, I was a bit
contentious.

But the top three finishers (both open and women's sections) all learned
chess on a different continent and also earned their first merits
elsewhere. They all came to America to foster their professional chess
careers.

I find this remarkable for a big nation with a long chess tradition.

Cheers,
Rainer
