Solomons Islands International - Day 3

After 5 rounds of the 2009 SOlomon Islands International, local player Fernando Aguilar is the sole leader on 5/5. In second place is myself on 4.5/5 followed by Brian Jones, Kerry Stead and Lee Jones on 3.5.
The big result for the local team was in Round 5, with Brandon Tangaibasa defeating FM Lee Jones in a 72 move game. Lee made it hard for himself by dropping a cold piece early one, but set enough problems to win it back. He then got tangled up in the ending and Brandon played good technical chess to bring home the point.
That result is the second win by a Solomon Island player over one of the visitors. The first was by Fernando Aguilar against Kerry Stead.
