2011 ANU Masters - Round 3

The shape of the 2011 ANU Masters is becoming a little clearer, with Andrew Brown continuing to lead with 3 wins from 3 games. With the draw seeing the top 3 players meeting in the first 4 rounds, Brown's win over second seed Andrey Bliznyuk improves his chances of winning the event. Next week he plays top seed Junta Ikeda, who was held to a draw by Jeremy Reading in this round. Peter Pullicino scored his first points of the tournament, after Adrian De Noskowski pushed the wrong pawn in the ending and had to surrender a piece. Miles Patterson moved to +1 after he won a couple of pawns against Ian Rout.
