Friso Nijboer is leading the Dutch Championship after three rounds. In the second round, he beat Jan Smeets in a nice game. Yesterday, Sergei Tiviakov drew in eight moves against Sipke Ernst.

I haven't been able to find out the reason behind Tiviakov's early draw offer - hopefully he had a good one because otherwise we simply have to condemn such a thing.

Stellwagen and l'Ami won nicely with Black yesterday; the former punished Bosboom's frivolous set-up and l'Ami suddenly had Brandenburg's king in a mating net.

Because so many top players are missing at this championship, Friso Nijboer is representing Dutch GM experience, and so far he's doing very well. With 2.5 out of 3 he's clear first now.
