Chess this week

Of course, all the attention is on the Anand-Gelfand match, which begins tomorrow in Moscow.

But don't forget that this week is the 2012 U.S. Chess Championship, being held in Saint Louis at the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis.

The championship is an invitational tournament, with 12 of the top players in the U.S. invited, including the two strongest players in the country, Gata Kamsky and Hikaru Nakamura. There's a women's tournament, too, and it also has a very strong field.

Round 1 was a doozy, with multiple decisive games. Follow the games live here!
