2019 ACT Chess Championship - Day 2

Three players are still tied for first place after the third round of the ACT Chess Championship. Tournament favourite FM Michael Kethro is one of those players, after winning a long game against Pertti Sirkka. He is joined by Sankeertan Badrinarayan and Tim Pearce, the latter beating Victor Braguine in a game where Pearce's attack on the kingside proved more effective than Braguine's play on the queenside.
Close behind them on 2.5 is unrated player Darryl Chan. A former junior player from Sydney, Chan scored an upset win over Yizhen Diao in round 1, and followed this up with a draw and a win. In round 4 he plays Pearce, while Kethro and Badrinarayan meet on the top board.
All the action begins at 10am and can be followed at
