  24. Nour Al Dien vs. Abdulwahab Al Atiqi
  25. Greg Blanco vs. Moh’d Mahmoud
  26. Abdulaziz Al Sinafi vs. Omran Al Mossawi

As for reporting. There were a few surprises. Asfand, the young Anand, defeated Omran in a tough game. Omran initially had an advantage against Asfand. But in the middle game, while attacking Asfand, Omran blundred a rook for a bishop. Omran lost the bishop as well a few moves later.

Also a very surprising game was played between Taher Al Khateeb and Waheed Hilal. Taher blundred early in the game. But according to past tournaments, Taher tends to rebound from his losses a few games after.

So Good luck to Omran, Taher and to all those who lost. There is still 7 rounds to go. As for the favorites, which include Bader Al Hajeri, Hani Samieh, and Ferdinand Bugay, they still have long to go to prove themselves worthy of winning the tournament.

There are also a few others who have 2.0 out 2 rounds apart from the mentioned favorites. So its still too early to tell who will win. So Good luck to all. And see you guys tomorrow. CHEERS!
