2011 Oceania Seniors

A good field of 30 players has fronted up for the 2011 Oceania Seniors Championship. The tournament favourites are IM Mirko Rujevic, former Australian Champion Doug Hamilton, and current Oceania Chess Confederation President FM Brian Jones.All three players managed to win their first round, although Phil Viner was upset by Nigel Cooper, and Frank Hutchings was beaten by Celestino Fulgenzi.
The event, held for the first time in Australia is being supported by a grant from the Asian Chess Confederation, and is being hosted by the Canterbury-Box Hill Chess Club. A link to the tournament website is here, while live games from the top boards can be found here. (although not right now!)
