Most of the first round games went according to rating, but a couple of higher seeded players did go down. Glenn Ingham lost to Amol Kiran in a well played game, while Paul Dunn never recovered from dropping a piece in the opening. Otherwise, it was the usual top half v bottom half beatings, although it did take some players a long time to harvest the point.
