Barclay maintains winning streak
That's now seven straight wins for the Group A leader, Bora Barclay, who defeated Cameron Lucci, Jai Arora, and Karan Suri last weekend. Barclay has only lost once this fall, an 8-7 defeat at the hands of Jeremy Chud. The leader's 8-1 record leaves plenty of distance ahead of William Green in second. The difference is 12 points.
But new players are on the tail. Rex Bondi is unbeaten, while Ray Zhang won twice in the latest round of play.
In Group B, Mack Fisher has a Group A win under his belt (against Green) and lead Cole Piraino by three points. Both are likely to face stiff competition from Group A this week as well.
Razi Dinan is out to a commanding lead in Group D with a 3-0 start, with his toughest test coming from Nico Madueno so far.
