  GrahamClayton: THis must be one of the major upsets in the history of the US Championships. Six-time champion Browne loses to a 16 year old in the first round.

  Mendrys: A sharp positional battle. GM Brown obviously overlooked the pin on the f7 pawn when he played Nc7.

I think that 29. d6 could be a Wednesday puzzle perhaps a Tuesday one. The threat of Qxg6+ leads to the loss of the knight else if he tries 29...exd6 then 30. Qxg6+ Bg7 31. Qxf7+ Kh8 32. Rh3+

and mate is unavoidable. 29...Rxd6 is another story. It leads to the loss of the queen but It's late and I'll leave that to another day.

  Mendrys: 29...Rxd6 there's 30. Qxg6+ Bg7 31. Qxf7+ Kh8 32. Qxe7

and now the Queen must take 32...Qxf7 (<< otherwise 32...RxRd3 33. Qh4+ and mate follows.>>) 33. Kxf7 Ra8-f8+ and it's mate in 12 according to Houdini.
