Next stop Gibraltar

The final leg of my chess holiday start tomorrow, with a morning flight to Gibraltar. The Gibraltar Masters starts on Tuesday, with 256 players in the top section. I'm currently seeded 228th and expect a couple of tough rounds before a find my level. I'm not expecting a stellar result (given my current form), but hopefully I will get some tough games, and some good practice.
The Masters is a 10 round event, with Caruana as the top seed. There are 72 GM's, 51 IM's and 39 FM's. From Australia IM Bobby Cheng and FM Zachary Loh are playing, and there are players from 55 Federations.
