2012 Dubbo Open - Day 1
The turn out of 28 players was lower than last year, and the absence of the normally large Canberra contingent was the main reason. Nonetheless the tournament attracted players from all over the Central West, as well as New England and the NSW North Coast. There was also a good turn out of junior players from Dubbo and Wellington, with unrated Nikhil Rajesh being the surprise packet, winning his first two rounds (against Neil Clark and Norm Greenwood).
Tomorrow the top two seeds clash in the fourth round, while Keast plays Mike Canfell on board 2.
