The results of three major T-Day tourneys are in. In the National Chess Congress in Philly, GM Alexander Ivanov took first on tiebreak over IM Leonid Gerzhoy, GM Giorgi Kachieshvili. See full NCC crosstables on MSA. At the American Open, GM Varuzhan Akobian took clear first while GM Alexander Shabalov won the Saint Louis Thanksgiving Open (MSA) at the CCSCSL. Look for reports from all three reports coming soon to CLO, including a piece on the American Open by Randy Hough of the Chess Journalists of America and a US Chess Scoop video on the National Chess Congress.
