Things became even less clear at the U.S. Open tonight, with a host of players tied for the lead with 6/7, including Alexandra Kosteniuk (who is taking byes in the last three rounds and will finish with 7/9), IM Michael Mulyar and frequent Chess Life and CLO contributor Jonathan Hilton who may not be blogging this time, but is making his voice heard anyway.
