Australian Open Day 7

Round 7 of the Australian Open saw the first all-GM clash, with Igor Khenkin & Zong Yuan Zhao drawing their top board clash. IM Max Illingworth & FM Bobby Cheng also won their games to join Khenkin in the lead on 6/7. There are four players a further half point behind, with GM Zong-Yuan Zhao, IM Moulthun Ly & FMs Junta Ikeda & Gene Nakauchi on 5.5/7, while 13 others are on 5/7, so the tournament is still very much up for grabs.
The first GM v GM clash, Khenkin v Zhao
 GM Johansen bucks the trend of the day & plays in jeans, while all of the other top players preferred shorts on the 40+ degree day!
The videos for the last few rounds have been delayed a little as I have been busy with a number of things, but hope to get something up in the next day or two.
