Mulyar360.jpgAfter six rounds of the 2nd Annual Washington International IM Michael Mulyar has a half point lead and a 2742 performance rating. Michael has played two GMs and is paired against GM Smirin in round 7. Since the tournament qualifies as a super swiss, he is well on his way to a GM norm. One half point behind Michael are GMs Smirin, Perez, and Jimenez and IM Ludwig. Round 7 started today at 11am. Round 8 is 6pm on Saturday and the final round is at 11am on Sunday.
