Not looking good for Marko on board 1. This is like deja-vu from last year's finals: a 2...e6 gone badly awry for Zivanic. Friedel is in his element in these king-hunts just like GM Larry Christiansen.
UPDATE: Marko lost. That was total annihilation, sheesh. Score stands at 1-1. Surprising blowouts and blunders on the top couple boards.
