I may get 3/4 with my draws choice.
I think Nick (Faulks) would get 3/4 as well as us two if that game is drawn. We all got one game wrong, and all three of us predicted a draw on top board.

No news from Andrew and Ravi about round 2 ... looks like round 3 prize rolls-over?

Cant go with anything but 0-1, 1-0, 0-1, 1-0

Are you sure? You have the lower-rated players winning on boards 3 and 4, is that what you meant?

I appear to have typed that wrongly.

Please replace with 0-1, 1-0, 1-0, 0-1
