2016 Millionaire Chess Open: Day Two

The good news is that Amy Lee had successful surgery and was released from the hospital. Her Facebook update showed that she received an outpouring of support and love and the tournament hall will be glad to see her at the beginning of the 5th round.

Favorites are still holding sway in the tournament. As the day ended most of the top 10 seeds were still at near the head of the field. Following are the games from rounds 3 and 4 along with some photos from David Llada and The Chess Drum.
