Default Is this the year of Alexander Shabalov???

Is there a such thing as a grand slam of US chess??

Because this guy seems to be winning every major US tournament this year.

I dunno, but:

US Champs: $30,000
US Open: $8,000
Chicago Open: $10,000
World Open: $3,050

So $51,050? In 4 tournaments alone?

"Pretty good year"

For a doctor or an attorney who is successful, that wouldn't even be a pretty
good *month.*

Now you know why we have no American world champions.
