2021 Oceania Zonal

 The 2021 Oceania Zonal is now going ahead as a 'hybrid' event. This means that the players will be playing online, but supervised by an in place arbiter. Due to the logistics of organising such an event, it will be a round robin tournament, with 1 player per country, except Australia, who can nominate 2 players.

The event is being held over the weekends of the 20th/21st and 27th/28th March with 2 rounds per day. The time limit will be the usual for a zonal, while the winner will qualify for the next World Cup. Whether the event is eligible for ratings and titles is not known at this stage as I believe this is to be decided on a tournament by tournament basis. 

I will post further details as they come to hand.
