Assuming unfinished games go as the engine predicts, scores with three rounds left will be

Dominguez 4.5/7; McShane, Smirin, Gelfand and Dubov 4.

Nobody here following this since last Tuesday,
I decided to keep my head down when Luke lost a game due to poor clock management.

Not the problem today. Another very classy win by Gelfand in the KID. When he beat Smirin in round 6 I was reminded of Avrukh's anecdote that he learned the fianchetto system because he was tired of getting good positions against the KID, but getting mated anyway, mostly my Smirin. Not a problem Gelfand seems to have.
