Nakamura-So as US Champs kick off in Saint Louis

Hikaru Nakamura faces Wesley So in Round 1 as the 2019 US Championship gets underway in Saint Louis today. Fabiano Caruana starts with a remarkable 57-point rating edge over 2nd seed So, but with defending champion Sam Shankland now also joined by Leinier Dominguez, whose switch from the Cuban to the US Chess Federation came through last December, it’s set to be a tougher event than ever. Nazi Paikidze will not be defending her title in the women’s event, but serial winners Irina Krush and Anna Zatonskih both play.
