Ultimate Blitz Underway in Saint Louis

The US Chess Championships in Saint Louis may be over but the Ultimate Blitz Challenge is heating up. Wesley So and Hikaru Nakamura lead after a series of three round robins with 5/9 each. Garry Kasparov played the most stunning chess of the day, marred by a few blunders. He is still well within striking distance of 1st place with 4.5/9, followed by US Champion Fabiano Caruana who stands on 3.5/9. Watch the full replay below and follow the event's conclusion tomorrow at 2 EST (1:50 EST for the pregame show) on livestreamuschesschamps.com and see a day 1 recap on chess.com. [youtube
