    Nice performance by Kayden

    Adams won 3 straight, and is playing Kachieshvili on board 3.  Adams as Black offered a pawn and it was surprising to me to see White take.  Possibly theory.  But I really like Black's position.  A win for Adams may put him at the top of the leaderboard.

    Danny has a very interesting game against young star Awonder Liang in a Najdorf variation that I am familiar with. :-)  Hopefully he has put his disappointing Dragon loss against Vibbert behind him.  If Awonder finds 22...Bc4, it will be very interesting indeed... EDIT: adams drew, and danny's game against an 8 year old is looking drawish, had black had played 32...Ne6! followed by f4 and Rf7!! in a key line Danny may have been in quite some trouble...
