The surprize leader is uneheralded Petr Kostenko who is on 5/6. Petr is the bottom seed. He is a GM though

If it was not rapid then GM norm would be 5 out of 9. So Molton needs 2/3 in the last 3 games to get a "rapid" GM norm.:)

It definitely qualifies Moulthun for an MCC Allegro! :P :)

Joking aside, the young IM is one of Australia's brightest stars and as in many other Aussie hopefuls the GM title is not far ahead.

Glasses?I really like the big font from Kerry. Can even read it without my glasses. (Yeah, I too have no idea what the Glasses column really means.) I see Ly beat the early leader Petr! Great performance by the second last seed.
BTW Elliott, both KB and I were there in person for the round of your great photo and watched quite a bit of Ly - Khusnutdinov. I first met the latter earlier - in Al Ain, UAE, 2014.

Its a screenshot of the crosstable translated in Google Chrome, so obviously it mis-translated Score to Glasses somehow ...
