Kamsky took Black with less time (25 minutes against Shulman's one hour) but with draw odds and put up a staunch defence to hold out and thus become the new US Champion.

Naturally the extra $5,000 dollars will come in handy but the title is just reward for his efforts in St.Louis.
Gata Kamsky $30,000 and the title of US Champion 2010.
Yuri Shulman $25,000 and second place.
Kamsky previously won the championship in 1991!
