    Oh My Goodness: (a) you could be right Elliott, and (b) at the moment I'd be top seed!! Hopefully the field will fill out some more.

    You become a Senior at the start of the year you reach 50 (and a Veteran in the year you reach 65). Tony is certainly eligible to play.

    oh no!!! No, No, NO!!! in this case (and I am slightly paraphrasing the Roman proverb here) Tony must not only be eligible but must also be seen to be eligible!!! He doesn't look like he has reached 50!!!

    Good luck, Tony and Elliott! I won't be playing - I have taken all my leave to go to Al Ain next week for the Asian Clubs Champions League.

    Thanks Adamski! I am sure you are enjoying yourself in Al Ain!

    BTW look at this list growing and we still have almost two weeks before the opening round!

    A document containing the following text will be on display at the tournament:

    Changes to the Laws of Chess:

    Please note that a new version of the Laws of Chess applies for tournaments commencing on or after 1st July 2014. The full version of the new Laws is at http://www.fide.com/component/handbo...1&view=article Players should take some time to familiarise themselves with the new Laws.
    The most important changes are:

    1. Players explicitly have the right to ask the Arbiter for an explanation of any points in the Laws of Chess. Please exercise this right.

    2. Unless the rules of the competition state otherwise, a player who is found to have brought a mobile phone into the playing venue shall lose the game. For this event, if you bring your phone, you must leave it in the box provided by the Chief Arbiter. If you fail to do so, you risk losing the game even if your phone makes no sound.

    3. The Arbiter will declare the game drawn if a position is repeated five times in a row or if 75 moves are played without a pawn move or a capture. Players can still claim a draw for threefold repetition or the 50-move rule, the new rule simply allows the Arbiter to step in when the players fail to claim the draw.
    The process for claiming a draw is unchanged. If the conditions for a draw have already been met, stop the clocks and call the Arbiter. If your move will result in the conditions for a draw being met, do not make the move. Instead, write it on your scoresheet, stop the clocks and call the Arbiter.

    4. If you push your pawn to the last rank and fail to exchange it for a piece before pressing your clock, the pawn is replaced with a queen and your opponent gets 2 minutes for the illegal move.

    5. A player shall lose if they complete (including pressing the clock) two illegal moves in a game.

    6. The touch-move rule states ‘touches with the intention of moving or capturing’, instead of ‘deliberately touches’, so if someone clearly simply forgets to say j’adoube, they do not have to move the piece they adjust. You should still state your intention to adjust pieces, as you do not get the benefit of the doubt if you pick up a piece then claim you were just adjusting.

    The entry list is here - https://sites.google.com/site/oceani...ration/entries and contains an IM, 2FMs, 2CMs and a WFM.

    The Chief Arbiter will be IA Charles Zworestine.
