Sorry about formatting. copy + pasting stuff isn't always the best.
However thought folks following this thread would prefer the info than the pretty formatting. (hope I'm right)

Congratulations to IM Anthony, but also to Quentin and Efrain for a meritorious performance. Looks like the latter could be under-rated (at least for now).

Having loose numbers inside comments (eg d7, 5am, rd 2) is a common cause of the PGN display crashing but even after removing those I haven't yet managed to fix it and don't know what the problem is.

Game by itself without notes:

Thanks both :)
Actually I was a bit lucky as after the early paring against Anthony I was playing a virtual swiss gambit. I didn't meet any of the other leaders at all.

The quality of my games wasn't great either - here is an example. Layla was doing fine until an unfortunate blunder:

[Round "3.4"]

[WhiteElo "1957"]
[BlackElo "2153"]

Here is probably the key game. Anthony's win to vault ahead of the leader David Vincenti.
