Xtreme Chess… Part 2!

The second episode of the “Xtreme Chess Championship” has aired featuring eight aspirants. In the first episode, Justus Williams toppled Kevin Wang while FM Kassa Korley beat Shawn Martinez. Both players will advance to play the winners of the Kats-Barnett and Melekhina-Liu matches.

Co-organizer Jennifer Shahade was excited about the pending matches which pit two master-level women against two of the favorites, FMs Elliott Liu and Alex Barnett. She was joined by the equally excited Jonathan Corbblah. Both games had interesting subplots, but the second was an absolute battle. Enjoy!
