2014 O2C Doeberl Cup - 2 days till kick off

The 2014 O2C Doeberl Cup starts in 2 days, and already entries have passed the 300 mark. The Major (U/2000), Minor (U/1600) and Under 1200 event are all filled up, so the only way to get into these events is hope for a last minute drop out. The Premier still has some space left, but you need to enter by midday tomorrow to guarantee a spot.
As in previous years the pairings for the first round of each of the tournaments will be done the night before. The drawing of lots for the Premier will take place at the ANU Chess Club, and then the pairings will be posted at both chess-results.com and the tournament website. There will be a live broadcast of the top 5 games from the Premier, as well as the top game from the Major. And if you are present at the venue, GM Ian Rogers will be doing live commentary of the games each round.
