2022 O2C Doeberl Cup - Day 1

 Day 1 of the 2022 O2C Doeberl Cup saw a couple of big upsets. FM Albert Winkelman scored a full point against current Australian Champion GM Temur Kuybokaov, while IM Gary Lane lost to a much lower rated Nethaji Rathinalingam. Currently 8 players are tied for first with 2 wins, including GM's Daniel Fernandez, Hrant Melkumyan and Bobby Cheng. 

Day 2 sees the start of the supporting events, with another 280 players arriving for the Major, Minor and Under 1200. Assuming everyone makes it to Canberra, this will break last years record of 330 players. Todays rounds start at 1pm and you can follow games from the top boards on various chess sites including Chess24, and Licchess.

Quite interesting from a tactical point of view game, thought Kuybokarov is known as a good tactician.
