The 10th annual All-Girls Nationals opened in Chicago with mayor Rahm Emanuel in attendance. A record-breaking 282 girls battle for victory in seven sections. See photos by Betsy Dynako below, follow pairings and standings on the Renaissance Knights homepage, and look for a full report after the tournament. Former World Champ and human rights advocate Garry Kasparov will give a signing on Sunday.

President Ruth Haring told CLO, "USCF thanks Garry Kasparov of the Kasparov Chess Foundation, David & Shiela Heiser of Renaissance Knights Chess Foundation, Bank of America for volunteers, Hipsters for Sisters for their donation and the City of Chicago for their hospitality."
