  1. I’m quite sure Malakhovets LOST to McSherry in round two. I heard him sigh and looked back and he was shaking his head and I heard McSherry say “Sorry”. I doubt he’d be apologizing if he had lost!

  2. Too much psychology, David. Back to non-kafkaesque world, I won on the 25th move. He blundered, but the position from his side was horrible.
