2013 O2C Doeberl Cup - Day 0

The 2013 Doeberl Cup begins tomorrow, with the first 2 rounds of the Premier. At the close of entries there were 75 players, although a mixture of bye requests and unconfirmed entries means that 64 players will be sitting down for round 1 (NB Unconfirmed players who do front up tomorrow will be paired after the start of round 1). When I last checked there were 238 players across the 4 tournaments, and hopefully some last minute entries in the Major&Minor + walk ups for the Under 1200 will push the tournament past the 250 mark.
In terms on online coverage there will be live broadcasts of the top 4 boards in the Premier, plus the top board in the Major and Minor (from Friday). I will also be running a live blog throughout the tournament, which can be accessed from the tournament website We plan to put up as many games as possible on the website as well, prioritising the top boards from the Premier.
If you are in Canberra, but not playing in the tournament (or even if you are), you can also catch the live coverage by GM Ian Rogers. He normally starts about 2 hours into the round, and there is no charge to watch.
The action kicks off at 1pm tomorrow, with round 2 starting at 7pm.
