SA Open Results

I've finally managed to get the final results from the South African Open (the website, while technically clever, doesn't provide much information).
IM Amon Simutowe (Zambia) was the outright winner with 9.5/11. In second place was GM Gawain Jones (England, but playing from Melbourne, Australia) on 9.0/11. IM Puchen Wang (New Zealand) finished in a tie for third on 8.5, and he was also playing from Melbourne. The other 'remote' player, IM Mirko Rujevic (Australia) finished on 7.5, but he did it particularly tough, working during the day and then playing his games in the middle of the night (due to the difference in time zones between Melbourne and South Africa).

Is that not the same player who was named as having entered the Doeberl and SIO at the same time as events on the other side of the world? hehe

Yes, although he did enter the Doeberl on the condition that he was able to to actually get here, which as it turned out he was unable to do. As we didn't offer him conditions, in a sense there was no harm done.
