Yeah, I kind of hope they tie again so that they both can get sent off to the left round. Outside of the tower that's cool but never made, tatlin is pretty limited. So an op art vote here!

Vasarely is a real Tournament wildcard, scoring a tie against no less a name than Valazquez in his first try and then winning this match seven votes to four, but amid considerable voter dissatisfaction. Well, we'll see how he does against Anders Zorn next weekend.
