2011 Oceania Zonal - Rd 1

I don't have access to all the results but there were already some significant results in the first round of the 2011 Oceania Zonal. On board 2 David Smerdon was held to a draw by Ivan Dordevic, while further down their were a number of draws (including myself against Nigel Cooper, Brian Jones with Josh Bishop, Helen Milligan with Matthew Bennett and Andrew Fitzpatrick against Winston Yao).
56 players are taking part in the Open zonal, while the Women's zonal will be an 11 player round robin (with a couple of extra rounds added on). For those looking fr live coverage, this is still a work in progress, with some cabling issue still being resolved.
Tomorrow is a double round with round 2 at 9:30 am and round 3 at 3pm (NZ time).
