Dubbo Underway

The 8th Dubbo Open has just started, with a record field of 30 players. Players from all around country NSW have entered, along with the odd Queenslander and a large contingent from Canberra.
I made the trip up this morning, once again proving that if I leave home at 6am I can travel to anywhere in the world, and be on time.
While the first round is still under way I had a good game to start with, catching my opponent with some opening tactics (8.Qe2, 9.f5!), to win material, and the game.

Hmm. A French (exchange?) would be ok against that opening.
