The battle between co-leaders was decided quickly in round 4. Pitts blundered a pawn without any compensation. The game since then was lopsided in Black’s favor. Macaspac efficiently converted his advantage into a win. Macaspac has one more tough game with Baniel in round 6 tomorrow. If he overcomes him, he will easily become the champion this year.

And for the chess-player the success which crowns his work, the great dispeller of sorrows, is named "combination."
