The Frank Berry U.S. Championship field (May 15-23) has been finalized. The 36-player field includes 2700+ favorites Hikaru Nakamura and Alexander Onischuk, three female players and current Samford scholars David Pruess and Josh Friedel.

Start planning your seven-player fantasy chess team. There will be an average rating maximum, so no fair picking the top seven! The winner will receive a 80 GB video Ipod. Details to follow next week.
