NSW Open 2010

Off to Sydney in the morning to be one of the arbiters for the NSW Open. At this stage the entries are looking very good, with 130+ players down for the Open and Under 1600 tournaments. There will be a good contingent from Canberra travelling up, as well as a few visitors from north of the border. (Not so many Victorians though, the Victorian Open is on at the same time in Melbourne).
The tournament is quite strong by Sydney standards, with GM Zong Yuan Zhao the top seed, and IM George Xie hoping to pick up some of the 18 rating points he needs for the GM title.
I will try and publish regular tournament updates, depending on my access to wifi (Mickey D's seems to be my best bet). And watch for the standings from the Open.
