DOCA TransNet 7/11/2009

In the first round of the DOCA TransNet FIDE Invitational, which began yesterday at the Dean of Chess Academy, Tim Hall lost to NM David Grasso while Rahul Swaminathan was held to a draw by Atlantic Chess News editor Steve Ferrero [standing].

Here is my draw from the second round.
