    Pairings for all rounds are published within Vega generated webpages. Access from Vega menu "Tables > Schedule".

    Direct links to all rounds pairings in each round robin's schedule are here:
    Masters, Qualifiers, Reserves, Talents.

    The webpage accessed under Vega "Pairings" menu just displays pairings for upcoming round and previous rounds that have all game results. A bit confusing when looking up pairings for all rounds in single or double round robins, but is what works for mainly swiss system pairings software that prevents improper actions.

    Johanson takes early lead

    The veteran GM Darryl Johansen is showing his class by winning his first three games and drawing the fourth to move into an early lead.

    Also the companion app “Analyze This” will allow you to switch from the “Follow Chess” app with the current game and you can see the blunders more easily.

    The 2 New Zealanders that are the only players that can get an IM norm seem to be out of the running with only 2 points so far. Has anyone calculated the score needed at the start of the tournament for an IM norm?

    Vega calculates that, but no doubt Keong has been keeping track of it as well so Mike could work out who to invite.

    Score required by both FMs for IM norm is
    6.5/10 for 10 game IM norm.

    Score required for 9 game IM norm from first 9 games played:
    FM Gong 6/9 for 9 game IM norm.
    FM Steadman 5.5/9 for 9 game IM norm.

    With 6 games out of 10 played and after shedding so many points, both FMs cannot earn an IM norm from this event anymore.
