After two rounds we only have 3 players lead the Mouflon Chess Championship 2020 with 2 out of 2. Nakis Christofides won his second game quite comfortably. Ekin Arca also won his second game with a nice smothered mate pattern. Demetris Regginos won again against a higher rated opponent, this time against AGM Andreas Georgiou. FM Paris Klerides was held to a draw by Fivos Kourouyiannis. Konstantinos Karathymios suffered another terrible game as this time he blundered a Queen in a winning position against youngster Arda Kole.
