We had our first tie game of the event, a 410-410 game between Mario Seychell (MLT) and Albert Zammit (MLT).

If the upper division had been odd, we would have had to move bottom seed Mario Saliba (MLT) down to the lower division. It's a good thing we didn't: he's in first place now, and one of two remaining undefeated players in A.

Paul Mifsud (MLT), fourth among the undefeated players in B, very nearly didn't play today, joining our group only because of a last-minute no-show.
