Kayden lost to a much higher rated player and appeared to get into trouble earlier in the game with multiple and sustained attack on his pawn on f7 by the opponent
Alastair and David drew their respective games. Alastair thinks he may have had an advantage but decided to go for a draw. David drew after a long game.
Paul appeared to have a steady middle game but down a minor piece. With a lot of effort in steadying the game, he lost on time.
Gabriele was quite quick with his moves, enough for his opponent to lose on time. Even though he was a queen down he appeared to have sufficient compensating materials to go for pawn promotion. Well played!
Ravi also appeared to have a steady middle game but with some materials down in the end game he lost.
