Mixed results for our players in Beijing today. GM Paragua is having a hard time with extra time control against his much higher rated opponents. Tomorrow is the last day of the preliminary and I doubt that Paragua would make it again in the semi final matches. Below is the results and game replays.
Please note: I'm directing you from the official live games website on the "view" links. If you can't see any diagrams (as one of our readers told us) and using firefox browser, you need to download java first (it's free) and install it as an add ons. Please visit the Java website. If you don't know how to do it and having similar problems, I suggest you use Internet Explorer because IE has already a default installed java script on the server. You may need to switch browser (no matter how you hate IE) to be able to view the games.
