  Penguincw: Back-to-back wins for van Foreest, and he's just half a point behind Stefansson. Those 2 will face off in the last round.

  paavoh: Four players at 5/8 before the last round: Esipenko, Piorun, Van Foreest and Stefansson with decreasing S-B order.

Round 9: VF has an edge over Stefansson, Esipenko a slight pull, and Piorun seems on the verge of losing.

  Penguincw: van Foreest has won a huge last round game. Piorun still on the verge of losing. Esipenko needs a win against a guy in last place to tie van Foreest for first.

In terms of tiebreaks, it'll come down to SB score.

  paavoh: It is settled. Van Foreest wins, Esipenko could not find a way to convert.
