The Baltimore Kingfishers grabbed their first win of the season with a convincing 3-1 score. Erenburg was first to finish with the Black side of a Berlin Defense. Then, almost simultaneously, Kahn and Enkhbat drew their games, by agreement and repetition, respectively. The Kingfishers had secured at least a draw in the match and all attention turned to board 3, where Zimmer, playing black, was already up a pawn and had a significant time advantage. He secured his position and took advantage as his opponent blundered in the time pressure.
