Dato Arthur Tan Malaysian Open

The 2010 Data Arthur Tan Malaysian Open begins in a couple of days, and it is look likes it will attract a strong field. The organisers have announced that 50+ titled players are taking part, although I haven't been able to find a link to advance entries on their website.
I do know a number of Australian players are taking part, a couple of them courtesy of their high placing in last years Myer-Tan Grand Prix. For the moment the official website has a couple of stories up, but is lacking the detail the chess bloggers like (who, when, how etc) but hopefully that will change once the event is under way.

The Malaysians are deliberately delaying naming their entrants for as long as possible to prevent any pressure being put on them by anti-Karpov federations not to play.
