Manitobans at the Canadian Open - Round 6

The best round thus far, 7-4.
Paolo Araullo did it again - taking down Canadian Master Andrei Moffatt.
Next he gets an FM - his fifth Fide rated player in the last six rounds.

And in the "they should use 'team pairing rules for small contingents' department, I am paired with Jim Green in the 7th round. There are only 43 (!) players with 3 points, and we get paired. Earlier in the night, in the skittles room. Jim joked that it could happen. I said - they wouldn't do that to us. What do I know ?

(Also, in an early round Saul Magnusson played Leah Green.)
