    US Champs 2018

    Caruana has lost a game with white against Zviad Izoria, of whom I don't think I've ever heard. The defeat was caused by trying too hard to win

    Shankland, So and Akobian are leading on 3/4. Caruana is on 2.5 and Nakamura on 2.

    A nice attacking game from Anton against Zviad Izoria. They played in the pro chess league this year.

    Caruana has recovered to share the lead with Shankland on 5.5/8, with So on 5. Nakamura, however, is having a shocker, and also lost to Izoria to be only on 3.5
