    Just a note from the arbiter: dear players, please use your real name and surname registering via Tornelo. The records like "A____ H_____" couldn't be accepted. Please make sure your account setting in Tornelo is Public, not Private. The tournament is registered in FIDE and ACF, we publish the list of players, pairings, results, and standing on this site, we send the final results to Australian and International federations for the rating calculation. Anonymity in such conditions is just impossible. And my special request to new players (first timers): please mention in the registration notice if you have any chess rating or ID number (FIDE, ACF, national federation for foreigners, rating from FIDE Arena online) and your full date of birth.

    MCC expects to hold the tournament, unless Victorian Government restrictions prevent this from happening (which is not the case currently).

    We are closely monitoring the situation obviously, so make sure to check for any further announcements here and via other channels employed by MCC.

    As the lockdown is TILL the Friday the tournament is due to start, some interesting scenarios could be happening, for instance: What if Chess is can be resumed but the player limit is is say 40 people ...and currently there are 73 entries.
    Will the tournament still be held? If yes, who will get to play and who will get kicked out?

    Or run online, because it's not like last year's Greg Hjorth open ran badly online on Tornelo

    well, today's number of cases is 2 - 11 was yesterdays' number with 9 out of 11 being in quarantine already. But even more importantly - i is quite obvious that even if we are out of the lockdown on Friday (hopefully it will happen and looks like it may), having a 70 player event permitted is unlikely.
