2010 ANU Chess Club Masters

For the first time in its short history, the Australian National University Chess Club is organising a FIDE rated tournament. The 2010 ANU Chess Club Masters began this evening on the first club night of the year. It is a 10 player round robin with 5 FIDE rated players and 5 FIDE unrateds. The aim of the tournament is to give more club members FIDE ratings, as well as to play some serious, long time control chess.
4 of the 5 games from the first round were played this evening ( 1 deferred game will be played in a few days) and it looks like the field is still feeling each other out. 3 games were drawn while the 1 decisive game was in a sense 'un-drawn'.
Alongside the Masters event was the clubs regular swiss tournament and this attracted a healthy field of 22 players. So for an opening night, 32 players in attendence is a very good figure.
