2021 O2C Doeberl Cup - 7 GM's now entered

 The 2021 O2C Doeberl Cup is starting to look like one of the strongest Open events ever held in Australia, with 7 GM's in the entry list. From Australia GM's Smirnov, Kubokarov, Cheng, Tan and Johansen have entered, along with GM Daniel Fernandez (ENG) and GM Hrant Melkumyan (ARM). In fact the GM's almost outnumber the other titles players (IM's, FM's and CM's) although I suspect this will change soon.

As of March 1st, there are 142 players entered across the 4 sections, with the Minor (Under 1600) having the most entries. As there are hard limits on each of the sections (due to Covid regulations), if you are planning to play in the 2021 O2C Doeberl, you should try and enter sooner rather than later.
