Congrats to FM Rose Atwell, who picked up a WIM norm in the 1000GM Tournament that took place this past week at the Flamingo. She picks up where she left off, with win vs IM Mark Heimann and this draw against GM Neuris Delgado, analysis provided by GM Ben Poppa

An draw by defending champion GM Illia Nyzhnyk opened the door for 2nd seeded GM Jianchao Zhou to be at the top of the leader board with this surgical win against IM Filip Pancevski fending off any attack White threw at him, GM Poppa with more analysis.

14 year old IM Ryo Chen notches a win against GM Dariusz Swiercz with the Black pieces in a line of the Sicilian that is not commonly seen at the higher levels. We are giving the notorious gangtsa’ a break while analysis is being offered by GM Kayden Troff of Chess

With a 4-0 score, this will likely setup a match against GM Zhou in Round 5 even with his Round 4 draw. Stay Tuned
