The best word I spotted this round was on Naween Fernando (AUS) and Wajid Iqbal's (PAK) board, its alphagram is ?AEKLOSV. See photo for answer.

I apologize for a significant interruption in coverage this round, as for the third time since the tournament began, our WiFi service has been cut off. Hotel technical staff are unable to explain to us why the continuous service that we booked keeps turning itself off, and until service resumes there will be no site updates.
