I didn't see much of the other games, but Steve won a piece early on and went on. I lost a pawn on move 19, and struggled on for a while, but never really looked like getting back into the game.

Ross had Gordon squirming for some time, and Douglas went up a pawn up after 4 moves, and there was plenty of areas offering hope for the D team.
