2013 ACT Championship - Day 2

Day 2 of the 2013 ACT Championship saw the top 2 seeds, FM Junta Ikeda and IM Andrew Brown, continue their winning ways, ending the day on 3/3. They are closely followed by Wais Sidiqi and WFM Megan Setiabudi who are on 2.5/3.
While Ikeda and Brown were relatively untroubled in their victories, their games were not without interest. Against Ian Rout, Ikeda demonstrated the efficient use of 2 rooks in the ending, while Brown turned a small advantage into a large one against Harry Press, all in the space of a few moves.
Tomorrow's 4th round sees Brown play Ikeda, while Sidiqi and Setiabudi meet on board 2.
