Chess960 reborn in the USA?

Eh Echessers!

Thanks to Mark Weeks over at his Chess960 blog, news has arrived that Chess960 has been played at the USA Chess Open this year and here is a wonderful discussion about it by a world standard grandmaster Jennifer Shahade. The question in my mind is whether Chess960 died in Germany after the loss of the Mainz chess960 tournament, but is being reborn in the USA! If you want to follow the Chess960 action at another USA tournament with some really top quality commentators, check out the live and replay video feeds of the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis.
