Kasparov asked Keith, 'Can you please show me how to play R+B v R'.

4/5 for Keith, Kalegin and possibly one other at the end of the first day.

Norman Hutchinson is on 2/4 in 65+ section.

Keith got into a mess against a lady named Galina and has lost.
To find a for(u)m that accommodates the mess, that is the task of the artist now. (Samuel Beckett)

Moving swiftly on, he's half of the lead (3 on 4.5/6) with three rounds to play.

17 17 Silva Rui Almeida POR 1804 1.5 2078 26.0 27.5

I think that means that Keith will be ahead of Sturua and Kalegin on tiebreak, in the event of a 3 way tie between them (we can always hope)
