    Constituting a zone known as Oceania with representative rights leading to the World Cup, it enjoys a status that some would savagely (like a savage) jeopardize by overzealous self-interest in wishing to confine it only to tournaments in the first two-mentioned nations and still be regarded a zonal heir.

    More power to the hosts Guam Echécs and the organizers who have beavered away to make it all happen.

    This is shaping out to be the weakest zonal in history of Fide with only 1 player rated above 2100!
