The penultimate round was an even day for the Aussies - won one, lost one. Dusan Stojic defeated WFM Mona Salman (2163) of Iran. But Nur Yachou lost to Indian player Priyadharshan K.
Dusan, now on 4/9 points, will front up against C.N. Vaidya today. Good luck to him. Hopefully he can get a draw to at least secure a 50% score. And we expect Nur, on 3 points, to do well against Obay Ali (1972).
And yesterday Wesley So downed WGM Maria Sergeeva to move up to 5/9 points and set a date with Indian IM Abhijeet Gupta.
