2010 O2C Doeberl Cup - 4 weeks to go

The 2010 O2C Doeberl Cup is only 4 weeks away. At this stage the entry list stands at 118 players over the 4 tournaments, but this will double (at least) before the close of entries. The Premier is filling the quickest, with 56 players registered. This means that there are only 34 places left, to be filled on a first come, first served basis.
The Major (Under 2000 ACF) has 29 out of the 80 places field, although the trend in the last couple of years indicates that it will go close to capacity field of 80 players. The Minor (Under 1600 ACF) and the Mini (Under 1200) are also beginning to fill as well.
In terms of titled players in the Premier there are 10 GM's, 11 IM's, 1 WIM, 4 FM's and 2 WFM's. The highest seedest untitled player in the Premier at the moment is Junta Ikeda (currently the 7th highest rated player in Australia), who is seeded 24th(!).
