The second round of the U.S. Championships has recently started in Saint Louis.

In the Men's Championship, today's pairings are Ramirez - Nakamura, Robson - Kamsky, Onischuk - Lenderman, Seirawan - Hess, Akobian - Shulman, Kaidanov - Stripunsky. Gata Kamsky surprised Ray Robson with a sideline 2...b6 (after the standard initial moves of the Sicilian Defence 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3). It's rarely used in practice among the world's top players.

In the Women's Championship, today's pairings are Baginskaite - Zatonskih, Melekhina - Krush, S.Foisor - Goletiani, Abrahamyan - Kats, Ni - Zenyuk. Camilla Baginskaite and Anna Zatonskih played the same variation of the Nimzo-Indian Defence that happened yesterday in Havana in the game Laznicka - Ivanchuk, annotated on our site.
