Because Jonny won from Komodo it has a better SBgr score ?
No play-off like in the blitz tournament?

Hiarcs - Jonny has all the markings of a masterpiece. What a beautiful game so far.

35. Nh1 38. Ne1.

Doubt if these moves were high in the move ordering.

Looks like Jonny will lose the game and Komodo will draw

Komodo has good chances to win the game but I am not sure that Jonny is going to lose.

I was talking about the situation before Shredders 48. Rc8.

Hiarcs just need to go with the king and capture the pawn on h4.
