Last year it was called the Thailand Open but it's the same tournament with a record attendance this year of 230 plus players in all sections.

The tournament has just begun with regular top seed, GM Nigel Short, second seed GM Jan Gustafsson from Germany and the entry which is a major coup for the organisers, third seed, Women's World Champion and joint winner in Gibraltar this year (with Short), 18-year-old GM Hou Yifan from China. Would be excitinging to play in the same field as her. There's a nice article at the link above about her visit to Thailand so far - her visit has created some interest.

There are five Australians in the field this year - regular overseas travellers FM Tim Reilly, Sean Watharow, Peter Frost, James Attwood and James Eldridge.
