The 2nd round is underway. Anthony Norris (1986) has late-joined, replacing R. Singh, who was filling-in.
The board by board pairings are:
1. Crump (1.0) - Privman (1.0)
2. West (0.5) - Kumar (0.5)
3. T. Idnani (0.5) - Camejo (0.5)
4. R. Idnani (0.0) - Norris (0.5)
We are 43 minutes in. West playing an English, via 1.b3, and Norris is defending an Accelerated Dragon. Didn't see what the other openings were.
T. Idnani is up an Exchange against Camejo and has advanced passers on b6 & d5.
West getting the upper hand vs. Kumar: extra pawn, B pair, R on the 7th. R. Idnani a pawn up on Norris, who has only partial compensation.
T. Idnani beat Camejo. West now a Bishop & Pawn up on Kumar... it should end soon. Privman winning against Crump.
1 game left. Norris won a piece vs. R. Idnani. Don't know how it happened. Roshan has a passed a-pawn but Black should prevail.
R. Idnan- 1/2-1/2 Norris. Anthony was short of time.
