The San Diego Surfers match with the Australia Kangaroos was very close coming down to the final round with an 8.5 - 7.5 win. This win clinches San Diego's playoff birth while Australia barely hung onto the fourth spot with a San Jose loss.

GM Alexey Dreev and GM Samuel Sevian led San Diego with both scoring an undefeated 3/4. In the final round, GM Anton Smirnov faced Sevian with both players getting down to 8 seconds each. Watch IM David Pruess call out how one player would blunder. In the end, that was Smirnov who dropped a piece.
