Oceania Zonal 2007 - Rd 3

The Oceania Zonal website has been updated with latest information available here.
After 3 rounds in the Open, Igor Goldenberg (AUS) is the sole leader on 3 points. He defeated joint leader Michael Steadman (NZ) in Rd 3, while the other leaders Zong-Yuan Zhao and Puchen Wang drew their game.
In the Womens Zonal Irina Berezina leads on 3/3 (no surprise there) ahead of Sue Maroroa (NZ) and Keiren Lyons (FIJ) on 2.5. PNG Representative Imelda Flores is in equal 4th on 2/3, although she had already played the top 2 seeds, defeating WIM Nancy Lane in Rd 1 before losing to Berezina in Rd 2.
While scanning for news of the event I saw a report of two rather large earthquakes in the vicinity of Fiji earlier today. Clearly this has had no effect on the tournament.
