Emory Tate qualifies for U.S. Championship!

FM Emory Tate has been one of the most active players on the U.S. circuit in the past year and never fails to bring excitement to the tournament hall. In the National Chess Congress tournament ending on November 27th, Tate qualified for the U.S. Championship with an undefeated 4-1 and will put his amazing skills next February in San Diego.

Tate's success is known far and wide, but his trademark is his crazed attacking style which has victimized a number of strong players. The Indiana State champion beat
IM Dean Ippolito in the last round to overtake FM Igor Schneider. He also drew with GMs Jaan Ehlvest, Gennadi Zaitshik and with IM Yury Lapshun. He will make his first appearance in the U.S. Championship and his participation will be highly-anticipated.
