Solomons Islands International - Day 4

With 2 rounds to go in the 2009 Solomon Islands International I have managed to jump out to a full point lead (6.5/7). I was helped by Brandon Tangaibasa who defeated former joint leader Fernando Aguilar in round 7. Despite the loss Aguilar is still in second on 5.5/7. Kerry Stead is also on 5.5, but has played an extra game, due to an early return to Australia.
Today saw a couple of crucial games in terms of tournament standings, with Lee Jones beating Kerry Stead, before losing to me an a quick game where he missed some tactics.
Tomorrow sees me play the next two players in the standings, Stead and Aguilar, while Aguilar also has to play Lee Jones. The tournament should be decided by the results of these games.

Hi Shaun, this is Joselito. Did I get the pairings correct? If so could you provide me the missing results between the local players.
I am going to publish the results in my blog. I guess you already have it in the bag, following Fernando Aguilar's lost to Brandon Tangaibasa.
