Only two Australian players this year. IM Andrew Brown in the Open (faded after 3/3 start) and FM Brian Jones (won a 65+ prize with 4.5/9).

Also Alexander Au in the Open - 3 Australians all together :).
Congrats on your prize! The top 65+ performer scored 7.5/9 though (3 points more) but I guess he claimed the Open Prize instead. On another note, can not believe how time flies: I remember seeing Fomynikh (winner of the senior's event) back in 1989-1990. He was a very young guy at the time (''young master'' is what he was called) so it is hard to imagine him playing in the Seniors :(.
