2013 Club Ch – Rd 4!

Abhinav Suresh continued his assault on the top spot with a come-from-behind victory against John Hartmann.  Both players were in time pressure when Hartmann missed Suresh’s back rank threats and was duly punished.  Suresh’s win left him in the driver’s seat with two rounds to play, and with his performance thus far, he will be a threat to be reckoned with as the tournament winds down.

In other games, John Linscott defeated John Stepp in a trendy line of the Ruy Lopez.  David Sparks correctly sac’d an exchange to earn a draw against Tony Dutiel.  Steven Cusumano beat Thomas Freed in a back-and-forth game, and Jon Reigenborn downed Brendan Forsling.
