US Women and Junior 2010 (Concluded)

US Women and Junior Championships 2010

The US Women and Junior Championships 2010 took place in St Louis 10th-20th July 2010. Irina Krush regained the women's title she last won in 2008. She edged out her rival Anna Zatonskih, these two look set to battle it out for this title for many years (indeed they have won all titles since 2006). Zatonskih won the title in a chaotic blitz playoff two years ago which makes the case against using blitz chess to decide important events more than any other. This kind of playoff looked likely this year but was avoided when Zatonskih couldn't match Krush's win in the final round. Parker Zhao looked likely to win the Juniors after favourite Ray Robson lost in the final round but in the end he failed to win a winning endgame and three players played off on Tuesday. Sam Shankland beat Zhao and then Ray Robson to take the title. Shankland has had some tough times recently making a living and has talked about retiring. Winning this qualifies him for next year's US Chess Championship and the World Juniors. He says it is unlikely he will play the World Juniors as he has other commitments.
