    The cc:d emails I get from the TCA website, or other indicators, give the following as entries so far (I'll edit the list as more appear):

    John Patrick - rapid only, paid
    Thomas Powell-Davies - both
    David Escobar - both
    Ian Rout - rapid
    Thomas Hartwell - rapid only
    James Fletcher - unsure which
    Reg Harvey - both
    Denis McMahon - both
    James Peirce - rapid
    Will Rumley - both, paid
    Kerry Beeton - both
    Luwanna Beeton - both
    Bayani Beeton - both
    Toby Straton - both
    Kevin Bonham - both, paid
    Addison Djatschenko - both, paid
    Monty Brown - both

    expected: Dylan Kuzmic - lightning

    There's an issue with the emails coming through the TCA site as Tasmanian Open entries meaning that I don't know which of the tournaments they are for, but if I get two from the same player I think it's safe to assume they are playing in both.

    The above is unofficial, not necessarily reliable, and for information purposes only; I am not involved in organising the event.

    I am hoping to play but not yet able to confirm because of a commitment that might prevent me from travelling up (not sure yet). Sometime between tomorrow night and Friday I will know for sure whether I can play, but I'm not sure when that will be just yet.

    I'll be playing but haven't officially entered yet. James Peirce is a probable (based on my chat with him this afternoon) - i think he needs to play an event before the next ratings list; the Beetons are possibles at this stage.

    I've entered for the Rapid, looking forward to donating some rating points i shouldn't have ��

    That would mean there'll be 7 of the top 11 on the Tasmanian quick list, including 4 of the top 5. Plus the defending Lightning champion.

    Looking at the entries so far this would have to have the lowest average age of a Tasmanian tournament in a while surely?

    I haven't checked, but possibly since late last decade for a title event. Late last decade there were some Tas Championships that had a very high proportion of juniors.

    Unfortunately I was wrong. Nigel can't play, and Dylan can only play the Lightning.

    Thomas Hartwell may be unable to play the Lightning. Rhian Shee has entered for both events.

    I'm really scared now, about half of the top 10-15 juniors in Tassie are playing!
    Hopefully i can keep my rating above 1800 ��

    Couple of results against rating and nearly a third as Luwanna was a piece up against Will, which became a pawn up in a rook ending that was tricky for a while before Will got the better of it.
