The 2011 ANU Open is just under a week away. At the moment the field stands at 57 players, although this will surely grow over the next few days. The top seed in the Open section is GM Zong Yuan Zhao, while local IM Andras Toth is defending the title he won last year.
As a warm up for the weekender, IM Toth will be giving a simul on Friday 29th July, at King O'Malley's in Canberra City. The simul will begin at 4:30 pm, and is sponsored by the ANU University Co-op bookshop.
A list of entries for the ANU Open (and Minor) is here, while tournament details are here.
