Heading off to Sydney tomorrow to be an arbiter at the 2015 NSW Open. New venue this year, with a move from Parramatta to Chatswood. As with lots of tournaments, such a move often causes some players to think twice about entering (due to an inability to handle change), but this years event has already topped the 100 player mark, and is looking very strong at the top. All the active Sydney GM's/IM's have entered as well as a couple of OS visitors (GM Melkumyan and IM Richard Jones).
Entries are still being taken on the day if you still wish to enter, but you need to get to the venue before 11:30am. Full details of this event, including the current list of entries can be found at http://nswopen.nswca.org.au/ Also use this link for tournament standings and links to the live broadcast of the top boards.
