It is a bit sad that this premier event has not been updated for 6 weeks.

The arbiter doesn't post on Chess Chat. He sent me the current standings and crosstable this morning. IM Max Illingworth leads by half a point over IM Anton Smirnov with one round to play. Max plays WIM Biljana Dekic with black tomorrow night, while Anton is white against Gareth Charles. In addition to the results in the below, Yi Liu beat Donato Mallari in their Round 9 game played last week, so is guaranteed at least 3rd.

Not sure whether he's playing anywhere else and I haven't checked closely whether the ratings above are accurate etc., but I think this result puts Yi Liu's rating up to 2295, so very close to the FM title.

Australia has had two alpha junior teams - in 2007 and 2013. Out of the 2007 team three people have become IMs; namely, Max, Molton and Junta. The other two do not play chess anymore. Out of 2013 team four people have become IMs; namely, Bobby, Anton, Justin and Ari. The only player still undetermined is Yi.

So for Yi it should be either IM or nothing...:)

My calculations show that Yi increased his rating by 20.8 points, which means he crossed the 2300 line. His live rating is 2306.

I believe his k-factor is 40 as he was 17 on the 1-st of January this year.

Yi turned 18 in March this year so I think his K-factor is 20.

I believe it stays until the next year, like what was said he was 17 on January 1st,
Pengyu Chen turned 18 January 5th and he got K-Factor 40 at Zonal and NSW Open

This is true, looks like FIDE aren't following their own rules:

'K = 40 for all players until their 18th birthday, as long as their rating remains under 2300.' - http://www.fide.com/component/handbook/?id=172&view=article
