This will be one to watch with such a very strong field. Can they avoid the 3 way tie? It will be a real challenge and should produce some unique lines. https://www.iccf.com/event?id=80655
Good luck to all three players, if there is an outright winner they are guaranteed a cash prize in the next Trios Championship Final
