2011 Dubbo Open - A win for Yin

Junior player Wenlin Yin (ACT), has won the 2011 Dubbo Open. Starting the tournament as the 8th seed, Yin won all his games on day 2 to finish on 5.5/6. He wrapped up first place with a win over joint 5th round leader Allen Setiabudi in the final round. This left Setiabudi in 3rd place, with Dubbo local, Trevor Bemrose overtaking him with a final round win over tournament suprise packet, Jamie Lee Guo. Also in third place were Christopher Skulte and Matthew Bennett.
Glen Qi (from Canberra) and Ramon Aich (from Dubbo) were the best placed Under 1400 players, while David Lanspeary and Jarrad Merrick were the best Unrated players.
Apart from the Open, there was a handicap lightning event on the Saturday night. Despite being the top seed (and therefore conceding the most amount of time), Don Keast still managed to claim first prize (and a nice bottle of red wine) in the blitz.
