    Interestingly both Fancy and Press are FMs already, but unlike most low-rated FMs in Oceania, they are Olympiad-FMs rather than Zonal-FMs.
    Yes KB, you are right about alternative pathways to 5/8 then a less fearsome opponent in the last round and - as I remembered much later after posting - Press and Fancy are already FMs!
