20 February was a Soft Deadline with 3 games required.

Regretfully, this was the end of forfeitless YATSL 2017-a. Srđan Grbić did not meet this requirement and, accordingly to the rules, the game Kris Wei (USSR) vs. Srđan Grbić (USA) had been declared won by forfeiture by Kris and may no longer be played as a part of YATSL 2017-a.

Of course, Srđan is still in the tournament and may (and is expected to) play his other games.
