  Peligroso Patzer: This quick win must have come as quite a relief for GM de Firmian. He had lost in the first round against a 1900 player and then in the second round got paired with Magnus Carlsen (who had had a first-round draw). In the second round (more predictably, this time) de Firmian again scored a zero, thus starting 0/2 in an open tournament.
