2020 ACT Chess Championship - Day 1

The 2020 ACT Chess Championship has started, with a good field of 36 players. While there is a big gap between top seed IM Junta Ikeda and second seed FM Michael Kethro (a little over 300 points), the gap between the 2nd and 10th seeds is a lot closer.
The first round saw most of the top seeds get through unscathed, although Victor Braguine was forced to work very hard against Nomon Vos before finding the winning tactical trick. The only game that did not end in a win for the higher rated player was between Paul Dunn and Luka Choi which finished in a draw.
The ACT Championship runs for the next 3 days, with 2 rounds per day. There is live coverage of the top boards as well as pairings and results at Rounds are at 10am and 2:30pm Canberra time.

Dear Shaun:

I might be late on Round 2, 10:00am. Is it acceptable?

It is totally Okay to deduct my time from 10:00am. I just want to ask that whether the zero-tolerance late rule also applies here or not?

Best regards

Hui Li
