The decisive rounds of the U.S. Championships have finished in Saint Louis. 

Hikaru Nakamura has confidentely defeated Yasser Seirawan and became the Champion, while second and 3rd places were occupied by Gata Kamsky and Alexander Onischuk respectively. Gata was finishing his game when it was already clear that he can't catch Nakamura, but is ahead of Onischuk.

The top three favourites finished in order of their rankings - however, that can hardly comfort Kamsky, who was leading the championship two rounds before the finish and had all chances to win the title for the 3rd time in a row; while the finish was quite beneficial for the former Ukrainian Onischuk - it was hard for him to count on any higher place than 3rd. 


Onischuk kept the Bronze

The U.S. Championship - 2012, Standings:
1. Nakamura (2775) - 8.5 из 11
2. Kamsky (2741) - 7.5
3. Onischuk (2660) - 6.5
4-6. Akobian (2625), Lenderman (2587), Shulman (2571) - 6
7. Robson (2614) - 5.5
8. Hess (2635) - 5
9-10. Kaidanov (2594), Ramirez (2593) - 4
11-12. Seirawan (2643), Stripunsky (2562) - 3.5.

In the women's section both leaders Anna Zatonskih and Iryna Krush won their games, which means the title holder will be determined on a tie-break, which will take place on May 20th.
