2012 ANU Open round 1

Round 1 of the 2012 ANU Open went basically to script. The wer no upsets across the top 10 boards, with ACT junior Michael Kethro's win over Jonas Muller on board 13 the highest game that went against rating. The top boards saw a couple of interesting match ups, with IM George Xie beating Steven Sengstock, while Adrian de Noskowski fought hard in his first ever game against a GM, before going down to top seed Zong-Yuan Zhao. The tournament itself has seen an increase in numbers from last year, with 52 players in the Open, and 36 in the Minor.
