The first two rounds nearly saw Browning pullan upset against Harris and Lowinger. However, after achieving slightly better positions in both games, he wasunable to convert either into victory. Thematch ups of the final round were the most exciting with Browning v. Patrickand Harris v. Lowinger. Patrick wasquickly forced to fight off a dangerous attack against his king and after aworking some of his magic he managed to win the game! Lowinger exacted some revenge on Harris,winning in a complicated rook and pawn endgame where Harris mistakenly thoughtLowinger had over-pressed and ended up over-pressing himself!
