A Grade

Alphaeus Ang vs Paul Garbett – White was better but Black managed to swap into an equal endgame. However Black made a mistake and lost. 1-0

Daniel Gong vs Mike Steadman – The usual Opening experiments from Mike. He got a good position but ended up a pawn down which was enough for Daniel to win the endgame. 1-0

Leon Zhang vs Alex Nagorski – White once again forgot his theory to give black a chance. But the players took a draw once the position had settled down a little. Draw

Tim Ha vs Ben Hague – White went fairly well but was a pawn down when the position swapped to a Queen + Pawn endgame. Black outplayed him to pick up another pawn and White resigned. 0-1
