A clear group of leaders is developing at the top of the scoreboard, with five people, led by Robert Macrae, within just over 10 points of each other, and then a 30 point gap. Will the final champion come from these five, or can someone make a strong showing to jump from the lower portion of the table?

Warrior-wise, this round was a bit boring, with almost everyone submitting variants on Paul Kline's He Scans Alone. Oh well...
