#537 Summer Tourney - Round 7

Ian Mangion, Mark Kernighan & Greg Tomkovich won to remain 1-2-3. Don Carrelli split a pair of games & now is clear 4th.

I played a simul & moved into a tie for 5th (with Max Sherer) by stealing 1.5 from 2 lost positions. Here's a highlight :

Pawlowski-Moldovan
After 32.Qg4?

Tripled on the g-file, White threatens 35.Rg8 +-. But I found 34...Rg3!! -/+ (interference theme/fork), offered a draw & Dave, with just 33 seconds left, accepted.

Moldovan-Pawlowski
After 32...Rg3!!
1/2-1/2
