IM Bryan Smith at U.S. Championships

The 2007 U.S. Chess Championship will be held May 15-23 in Stillwater, Oklahoma.  One of our coaches, International Master Bryan Smith, is part of the 36-player field.  This is the first time Bryan has qualified for the U.S. Championships, and he begins the tournament as the 26th-seeded player so it will be quite a challenge!  All of us here at Silver Knights wish him good luck at the tournament.  Check back for continuing updates from Bryan during the tournament.
