2012 ANU Open - Round 6

Max Illingworth has taken the outright lead going into the final round of the 2012 ANU Open. He defeated Denis Ovcina on board 2, while IM George Xie and GM Zong-Yuan Zhao drew on the top board. After the game Zhao said he was lucky to get way with the draw, as he believed he stood worse as early as move 6. On board 3 Michael Wei and Giang Nguyen drew, while Gene Nakauchi beat IM Moulthun Ly on the fourth board. The final round sees Illingworth up against Zhao with the top seed needing a win to overtake his opponent. In the Under 1600 tournament Simon Ong minted his half point lead as the top 2 boards were drawn. He plays Harry Johnson in the final round, while the board 2 game between Geoff Barber and Jason Gillard may also have an effect on the final standings.
