HOME OF U.S. CHAMPIONSHIP CHESS & THE COUNTRY’S TOP PLAYERS
While none of the matches truly went down to the wire, the players did an excellent job of entertaining the audience with exciting games.
Day three saw two matches become closer while the others saw the leaders continue their winning ways.
Day two had a starting position that looked more normal, but that didn’t stop the players from finding creative ways to play.
The first day of the 2019 Champions Showdown definitely didn’t lack for excitement.
