Ed slowly outplayed his opponent from the Black side of a King’s Indian Attack.  Russell played for a slight advantage in a queen-less middlegame, and was rewarded when opponent blundered a pawn on move 14.  Kyan punished his opponent’s plan-less play in the London System.  Rowland snared his opponent’s bishop in a neat trap, forcing resignation on move 27.

Congratulations to Ed, Russell & Rowland on their first wins in the tournament!  And congratulation to Kyan on his 3rd successive win with Black!
