I had seen this news reported elsewhere, here is a new press release from the St. Louis Business Journal: Thursday, August 27, 2009, 3:07pm CDT Chess Club to host 2010 championship St. Louis Business Journal The Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis will host the 2010 U.S. Chess Championship. The event, to be held April 23 to May 6, will feature 24 of the best chess players in the country. The club also hosted the 2009 championship last May and will host the 2009 U.S. Women's Championship Oct. 3-13. "It was our privilege to host the 2009 U.S. Chess Championship and we're honored to be chosen again," said Tony Rich, executive director of the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis. The non-profit Chess Club was founded by retired investment company executive Rex Sinquefield and opened in July 2008. It has more than 500 members. My question: Is the 2010 U.S. Women's Chess Championship included in the sponsorship deal?
