As noted in shoutbox Max Illingworth is playing and is on 2/4 after running into a dense thicket of Indian juniors.

Rishi Sardana is also playing and going pretty well after four rounds on 2.5 with 1.5/3 against three GMs. Win over Gupta (2639).

There are 38 GMs in the field.

Max and Rishi both 3/6 after more trouble with underrated Indian players. I think Rishi's norm chances are just about gone though maybe three wins in a row might do it.
