Round 8 turned out to be the most decisive round so far with 2 won games and 1 drawn game. The 3rd seed Wesley So now has 5.5/8 (+3-0=5) points and widens his lead to a full point over GM Bruzon Batista, Lazaro(CUB)2682, the new 2nd placer after R8 with 4.5/8 who won his game versus Vallejo Pons, Francisco(ESP)2700 in the 38th move of French defense.  The third game of the round, also a French defense game, between GMs Almasi & Ivanchuk, ended in a 57th move draw.
