2-Weekend Schedule: GM Victor Bologan (left) is perfect with a 4 - 0 score.
7-Day Schedule: GMs Akopian, Ehlvest, Gulko, & Minasian were perfect after 3 rounds but drew with each other in round 4. Surprisingly, no one moved up to join the
leaders in the 7-day schedule. If someone is going to make a move, it should be on Saturday.
5-Day Schedule: Benjamin, Finegold, and Sherzer are tied at 3-0.
Bologan stands alone at the top although a 5-day player may match him. Saturday is crucial and may well separate the contenders from the pretenders. We'll also see if the layoff on the two-
weekend schedule affects Bologan's play.
