American Cup, Day 8: Aronian and Caruana draw, Krush wins against Lee

The finals of the American Cup kicked off today with the first of two classical games in the matches between Aronian – Caruana and Krush – Lee. In the Open, Aronian (pictured) managed to build up a winning endgame advantage but faltered at the last moment, allowing Caruana to escape with a draw. Meanwhile in the Women’s Field, Krush displayed her strategic skill once again, outplaying Lee in the early opening and middlegame to take a 1-0 lead in the match. | Photo Courtesy of Saint Louis Chess Club, Bryan Adams
