Round two of the Thanksgiving Open is complete at the Khorassan Ballroom in the Chase Park Plaza, located just one block from the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis. Round one witnessed no major upsets as all titled players advanced with 1/1.

The big surprise of round two was CCSCSL standout Kevin Cao's draw against GM Gregory Kaidanov. 

The three-day option started today and brought out more than 100 participants. The two-day option begins tomorrow at 9 a.m. and should add an additional 20+ participants to the field. The fileds will merge during round four, which begins tomorrow at 6 p.m.

Stay tuned for a more complete recap of the first two rounds tomorrow.
