Reykjavik Puffins Survive London Towers

Reykjavik Puffins Survive London Towers


The Reykjavik Puffins survived the London Towers led by GM Gawain Jones with a perfect 4/4 score. Jones played from Wijk aan Zee, Netherlands today since he is playing in the "A Group" at the Tata Steel Masters. Given his tough loss to GM Magnus Carlsen in round eight, one might reasonably conclude that Jones is out for revenge! Just watch him take down IM Jon Viktor Gunnarsson with the swaggering 1.a3.

The match came down to the wire in round four and could have been decided in a wild time scramble between the board two players, IM Ameet Ghasi and GM Helgi Olafsson. At one point it even appeared that Olafsson had run out of time!
