Western Pacific Open, Day 2

The 3- and 2-day schedules have now merged, with a total of 91 players. The 35-player Open section featured three GMs and two IMs, but one of the GMs has already fallen by the wayside, as GM Melikset Khachiyan withdrew after a second-round loss to San Diego master Ron Bruno. Going into round three, six players are tied for the lead with 2-0: GMs Mark Paragua and Darwin Laylo, IMs Enrico Sevillano and Tim Taylor, and masters Pedram Atoufi and Ron Bruno. As before, complete standings may be found here.
