These two sections were listed as Game/75, but try to get kids to think about anything for seventy-five minutes. Pairings were made as soon as the previous round was completed, and the five-round event was done before the other sections began round two!
Kyle Kras took clear first in the Under 1000 section with a 3½-1½ score; Giorgi Vanderway, James Calcagno, and Ankush Moolky tied for second with 3-2.
Daniel Polski swept the Under 700 section with a perfect 5-0! Alexander Smirnov lost only to Polski and took clear second with 4-1.
