2011 ANU Masters - Round 8

IM-elect Andrew Brown wrapped up the 2011 ANU Masters with a win over Adrian De Noskowski this evening. Although it is only the 8th round, Brown played his 9th round game against Alana Chibnall ahead of schedule, winning that as well. This leaves him on an impressive 8/9 and a full point and half against Junta Ikeda, who still has a game in hand.
Ikeda moved to 6.5/8 after picking up an early pawn against Peter Pullicino, and then rebuffing an attempt to hack the king. Michael Reading salvaged half a point against Miles Patterson after looking like he was facing a lost ending, while Alana Chibnall continued her good tournament by beating Jeremy Reading after the latter got his pieces tangled up while trying for an attack.
