Nakamura's loss with White was perhaps the biggest surprise of this year's championships.
Onischuk's loss was his first for years in the US championships, and for a while he seemed to be fine, but finally Kamsky eked out the win in a long endgame.
So the decisive results of today leave it down to two potential winners:
|1||GM Hikaru Nakamura||2733||0-1||GM Yuri Shulman||2613|
|2||GM Gata Kamsky||2702||1-0||GM Alexander Onischuk||2699|
So the points tally in the Quad Final is as follows:
|GM Gata Kamsky||2702|
|GM Yury Shulman||2613|
|GM Hikaru Nakamura||2733|
|GM Alexander Onischuk||2699|
Tomorrow's last round sees Shulman having the advantage of the white pieces against Kamsky.
|1||GM Yuri Shulman (6.5)||2613||GM Gata Kamsky (6.5)||2702|
|2||GM Alexander Onischuk (5.5)||2699||GM Hikaru Nakamura (5.5)||2733|
In the Challengers swiss Shabalov came out on top with a last round win, and he thus takes the fifth prize.
Stripunsky has to settle for sixth.
The ninth and final round of the swiss challengers in full:
|3||GM Alexander Shabalov (5)||2585||1-0||GM Alexander Stripunsky (5.5)||2570|
|4||GM Robert Hess (4.5)||2590||0.5-0.5||GM Alex Yermolinsky (4.5)||2528|
|5||GM Larry Christiansen (4.5)||2578||0.5-0.5||GM Ben Finegold (4.5)||2539|
|6||GM Ray Robson (4)||2569||0-1||GM Varuzhan Akobian (4)||2599|
|7||IM Irina Krush (4)||2455||0.5-0.5||GM Jesse Kraai (4)||2492|
|8||GM Gregory Kaidanov (3.5)||2577||1-0||GM Jaan Ehlvest (4)||2591|
|9||GM Joel Benjamin (3.5)||2565||1-0||GM Sergey Kudrin (2.5)||2571|
|10||GM Aleksandr Lenderman (3)||2598||0.5-0.5||GM Vinay Bhat (3)||2547|
|11||GM Melikset Khachiyan (3)||2539||0.5-0.5||IM Samuel Shankland (2)||2507|
|12||IM Levon Altounian (2.5)||2454||1-0||GM Dmitry Gurevich (2.5)||2488|
Irina Krush only drew and so missed out on her GM norm.
