Players in the next seeding bracket did a little better, and as a result there are still 9 players on 2/2. Included in this group are young players Smirnov, Morris, Wallis and Ikeda, while veterans Lane and Chapman are also there. Results for the event can be found at www.doeberlcup.com.au and if you follow this liks to the live games you can even catch up with the games that were broadcast for round 1.
On player who possibly falls between the young/veteran groupings is IM Trevor Tao. He is currently os 1.5, but he was so pleased with his round 1 game, he submitted ot for the brilliancy prize. Sadly the event does not have such a prize, but I did promise him I would put it on this blog.
