ST. LOUIS — An international chess master has won the U.S. Women's Chess Championship in St. Louis for the fourth time.
Anna Zatonskih didn't win last year. She recaptured the title Thursday after winning a triple-overtime-style match against Tatev Abrahamyan.
Zatonskih will get $18,000, and Abrahamyan will get $12,000 of the $60,000 women's prize fund.
In Wednesday's all-male U.S. Championship final, 36-year-old Gata Kamsky of New York defeated Grandmaster Yury Shulman of Chicago. Kamsky will receive $42,000 and Shulman $30,000. An additional $98,000 will be split among other men who fared well in that competition.
Both tournaments were hosted by the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis.
