2019 Oceania Zonal - Day 2

After 3 rounds of the 2019 Oceania Zonal, only Clive Ng has maintained a 100%, beating Paul Spiller in today's only round. A number of draws on the top boards sees a pack of 5 players tied for second place on 2.5.
Top seed Max Illingworth scored his second win of the tournament to keep his chances of winning the tournament alive, while I once again had a lucky escape, drawing an ending which started with me two pawns down.
In the Women's Zonal, a draw between Olga Szekely and Rebecca Stones means that GM Julia Ryjanova and WFM Vyanla Punsalan are the only players on 3/3. They meet in round 7, in agame that might very well decide the tournament.
