A very nice story covering the O2C Doeberl Cup (and the Sydney International Open and Bangkok Open) is currently on the front page of Chessbase.com. Edwin Lam, the author, extols the virtues of each of the events, and throws down the challenge to overseas players to become only the 4th non-Australian winner in the 45 year history of the tournament.
If you are planning to enter the Doeberl Cup Premier you better do so fast, with only 20 places in the 80 player field left. For players under 2000 (or over 55) there are other events to play in (Major or Seniors), but if you are neither then you run the risk of missing out on one of the strongest Open events in Australian chess history.
And for those planning to play in the other events, there is only 7 weeks to go before the tournament starts. As entries for all tournament (except the Under 1200) will not be accepted on the day, you should register your entry now to guarantee your spot in the field.
