MCC Australia Day Weekender - Day 2

Just one round tonight at chess, but quite a dramatic one, with top seed Michael Baron being defeated by Sylvester Urban (obviously his preparation at the State Library before the game worked!). There were a few fighting draws that finished late, but other than the top board, the only other upset was Tristan Krstevski beating Finley Dale. Here is the Urban-Baron game:

As usual, results & the draw for round 4 are up on Chesschat.
The weekend should make for some interesting chess, particularly with the top seeds now being a point behind the leader (Urban now being the only one on 3/3), and therefore in a position where they really need to win all (or almost all) of their remaining games to stay in contention for first place.
