Round 4 saw Dusan Stojic continue his winning ways, moving to 4/4 after defeating Mirko Rujevic. Dusan now has the outright lead, at least until Wednesday, when Ari Dale plays Mehmedalija Dizdarevic (Ari went to Sydney over the weekend to the Ryde-Eastwood Open, where he scored 5/7, including a win over IM George Xie). There were a number of other players who moved to 3/4, joining Mirko Rujevic. These were Guy West, Carl Gorka, Malcolm Pyke & Jason Chew. Jason played a very impressive game against David Beaumont, which you can see below. On other boards John Beckman beat Richard Voon & Ben Frayle beat Paul Cavezza, while Phillip Drew did as his name suggested against Alex Kaplan. Other results went according to rating.
As usual, results are posted on ChessChat.
This week's game sees Jason Chew play a nice attacking game to upset David Beaumont. David goes astray in a slightly worse position with 13... f6 & Jason follows up very accurately, winning a queen for rook, and soon after the game.
