CM Gunnar Hjorth in Lead-Position With One Round To Go + Elo-Norms Incoming

After a quick draw in the morning of round 6, between Östersunds SS player FIDE-CM Gunnar Hjorth and ASSU:s Patrik Storm, CM Hjorth stands on 5 points in pole position for the final round 7. Thereafter, SS Luleå:s player Tobias Pettersson (whom are playing Isak Ersholt from ASSU) are fighting for the top spots along some two players.

A derby on live-board 2 between ASSU players Michael Piwowar and CM Rickard Engman will decide for third, fourth and second spot after round 6. CM Engman can if he wins pass CM Hjorth, so the chess drama is still ahead.
