2022 US Chess Championship Second day results, score, winners, standings, third day schedule
Day two of the 2022 US Chess Championship saw a number of shocking results, including 15-year-old Christopher Yu’s victory over defending champion GM Wesley So in an extremely aggressive match. Additionally, in the open section, Elshan Moradiabadi bounced back from his first-round loss to claim victory over Awonder Liang. However, no other tournament favorite made much progress in the remaining matches, which were all very close throughout.
During his confrontation against Liner Dominguez, Levon Aronian looked ready to win but several blunders cost him victory as he decided to equalise. Elsewhere, Hans Niemann missed his chance to win and had to settle a tie with Jeffrey Cheung. After two rounds of matches, champion Wesley is surprisingly sitting last with 0.5 points while 19-year-old Hans Niemann leads the table with 1.5 points alongside Samuel Sivian.
Current champion Wesley Sue will play Cheung Jeffrey in the third round match of the 2022 U.S. Chess Championship, while co-captain Hans Niemann will compete against Sam Shankland to retain his advantage. In another match, Levon Aronian will face top-ranked Samuel Sivian and try to win his first match in the competition.
