GM Wojtkiewicz Power Play! GM at 3 - 0

GM Alek Wojtkiewicz is off to a 3 - 0 start as this report goes online with round 3 in the 7 day schedule still ongoing.  It's been a great year so far for the grandmaster and players are buzzing: Is this the year he wins the World Open?  There is, of course, plenty of play left!  Expect today's results to be online by 11:30 am tomorrow.

Note: The live game went well today until a server crash. We're learning a lot and will try again on Saturday, July 1st at Noon ET.
