  Penguincw: 2nd seed Alberto David takes the lead after 6 rounds at the Anogia Open. Today, he defeated top seed Tamir Nabaty. Those 2 were tied with 4.5/5. In R7, he'll face Nikolas Theodorou with black.

  Penguincw: Alberto David wins the Anogia Open! He had a stunning 6.5/7 start, and finished with 7.5/9 (+6,-0,=3), half a point ahead of top seed Tamir Nabaty.

What I also found impressive was that he was on rather Board 1 or 2 the entire tournament.
