One player who seemed to have little difficulties with the early start was IM Igor Bjelobrk who had a nice win over FM Kevin O'Chee. He got his g pawn running early, although the kingside hack that normally occurs with it did not eventuate. Instead he just got a better position in the centre enabling a nice tactical finish. Bjelobrk is now on 3/3, although he is likely to be joined by others once the round is complete.
