2011 Dutch Open

2 wins and a draw by three young Australians in the 2011 Dutch Open makes for a successful round 1. While FM's Moulthun Ly and Junta Ikeda started in the top half of the draw (and played lower rated opponents), IM Andrew Brown started in the bottom half. As a result he played GM Vladimir Georgiev, but was still able to split the point. Wins for Ikeda and Ly have resulted in GM opponents in the second round, with Ly being pairing with Dutch chess legend Jan Timman.
The tournament website is at this link, with plenty of live games on show, with broadcasts starting at 9pm Canberra time. (It is in dutch, but the menu options should be clear enough)
