The US Chess Championship 2022 is taking place from 5-20 October at the Saint Louis Chess Club. Fourteen of the country’s strongest chess players battle for the national title and $60,000 in a classical round-robin event with Fabiano Caruana, Levon Aronian and Wesley So headlining the field which includes Hans Niemann as the 8th seed.
Fabiano Caruana heads into the last round of the tournament as the sole leader, with Ray Robson trailing by half a point. Robson will take white pieces against Jeffery Xiong in the last 13th round and he needs a victory to possibly catch Caruana on the top. If the two players tie for the first place of the 2022 US Chess Championship, the Winner will be determined in the playoff match tomorrow. Follow the game live:
