    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!

    No need for any vaccines for Guam. Just follow the advice of US.

    Notes: Organiser CM Rogelio Orio advised today that Johnson Li (NZL) has withdrawn and, as has been previously confirmed via other avenues here on ChessChat, IM Temur Kuybokarov (AUS) has withdrawn. He also said he'd write at the end of the week and send me a finalised list of players, as he has been waiting for a few late registrations from Guam players to be completed.

    To the best of my knowledge, Irina Berezina withdrew quite a long time ago.

    Thanks KB Perhaps Rogelio forgot to inform me about the women's event in his update. I'll follow this up with him.

    Hi All,

    I was expecting to receive confirmation of final entry lists for both the Open and Women's Zonal in Guam over the weekend but no news yet, sorry.

    Cheers, Tony

    Thanks for the update Tony. Are the players from Solomon Islands not coming or left off the update in error? A bit disappointing if that country no longer represented. Comparing the lists I see also Michael Buciu (AUS) and Benny Pinaula (GUM) no longer listed.
