2011 ANU Masters - Round 7

Round 7 of the ANU Masters saw the players return to action after week off. The Ikeda v Chibnall game was over fairly quickly after Chibnall dropped a piece early on (her second disastrous Ruy in the past month). Ian Rout defeated Michael Reading after winning material in the middlegame, while Jeremy Reading found a nice rook sacrifice against Adrian De Noskowski to generate a winning attack. Andrew Brown found a novel path to victory by sacrificing a piece (to go a rook down) in the hope his pawns would overwhelm Miles Patterson's extra rook. While deciding whether the piece could be taken or not, Patterson lost on time. The final game to finish saw Peter Pullicino go from promising position to a lost rook and pawn ending, which Andrey Bliznyuk converted without trouble.
Andrew Brown continues to lead the event from Junta Ikeda by half a point, with Andrey Bliznyuk a point back.
