Round 5, Wastney and Green Break Away

Bob Smith against Mike Steadman ended in a draw, although I really liked Mike's position better. The other two games in the leading pack were decisive, with Scott Wastney winning brilliantly and Ewen Green winning mysteriously! Scott and Ewen now lead the field with 4/5.

In the Major Open there is still one player left on 100% - Max Chew Lee from Australia. He inflicted a first defeat on Cantabrian Timothy Rains, and as a reward gets to play against Wellington Chess Club's Layla Timergazi. Apart from Layla and Timothy, Arie Nijman (father of Brian) is also up there on 4/5.
Here is Max conjuring up a win in a Bishop and pawn ending, against Jack James in round 4
