After an early Round 2 draw against IM Matias Perez Gormaz in a French Advance gridlock, Vasif wins the next five games, including one against last years defending champion Illya Nyzhnyk, and norm seeker Ryo Chen. These pair of wins allow Vasif to climb up the leader board, securing a full point lead with two rounds to go. Here is is game vs Chen.

Many other games are still in progress, and a larger write up will follow. Congrats Vasif!
