Frayna posts 2 draws in Brugse Meesters

MANILA, Philippines – Janelle Mae Frayna drew with Russian Grandmaster Vladimir Epishin and Italian Carlo Marzano to stay just a full point off the pace after four rounds of the Brugse Meesters 2017 in Brugge, Belgium Monday night.

After splitting the point with Epishin, a former second of ex-World Champion Anatoly Karpov, Frayna seized the positional advantage and initiative against Marzano but misplayed a winning endgame to settle for the draw.

Frayna now has three points, including a pair of victories over French Gregorie Mallet and Dutch Marcel Krosenbrink in the first two rounds.

She will play Dutch Jocem Mullink in the fifth round next.

This was Frayna’s fifth tournament after she finished with five points out of the possible nine in the 21st Hogeschool Zeeland Open 2017 in Vlissingen, The Netherlands a few days back.
