Stumbling to the Top

My last comment about the Chess.com Giuoco Piano thematic tournament that I most recently played in (see "Unlinked") was a bit melancholy
And - I'm sitting on top of the standings in the Chess.com Giuoco Piano tournament, one point ahead of the field (thanks, in part, to the Jerome Gambit). However, IlToscano has two games left, so he can catch and pass me... 
Surprisingly, once again (see "An Unexpected Success") the competition was fierce enough amongst other players that it turns out that nobody will be able to catch me after all (there are a couple of games not yet finished).

Another inexplicable first place finish, assisted by a 7-2 record with the Jerome Gambit.
