This is an exciting time for chessplayers. First the big Anand-Kramnik match, which certianly exceeded expectations. Possibly a Kamsky-Topalov match later this month. And now the big olympiad in Dresden, Germany. The U.S. is represented by a strong team consisting of Onischuk, Shulman, Nakamura, Kamsky, and Akobian. A serious medal threat. And, indeed, today we won our first round match against Iceland.
