    Bobby Cheng who is playing for New Zealand is another player worth watching. He now plays at the Box Hill Chess Club.

    Thanks Ian. Sorry to not be doing the same- there are a lot of scores and I don't have time to record them all! But just noting that Gene Nakauchi in the Under 12s is having a good run having won his next 2 games so he's on 6.5 out of 8 now.

    Gene is actually going very well indeed being 6th on tie break but actually equal third on scores with 5 others and only a point off the lead. There is only one player on 7.5 and one on 7 in the first two spots after 8 rounds.

    Gene won again in round 9, and is now on 7.5/9, half a point behind the leader (=2-5). This is a tremendous performance on the world stage (he is 34th seed). He has black against the American Naroditsky in rd 10.

    I see that Sally Yu is on 6.5 after 10 rounds having had 4 wins in a row against higher rated opponents. Bobby Cheng (NZ) in the U/10s is now on 7.5 as well. Like a few of the top seeds he had a loss to the unrated 146th seed, Wang Tong Sen from China (in the U/10s, players were unrated from about the 30s so he was seeded by name) who is actually leading the field with 9.5.

    So how does Nakauchi, seeded 34th, place 11th while performing below his rating? Is there an error there?

    He played seven rated players, average 2152, scoring 4.5, which is a performance of over 2250.

    However he scored 3/4 against unrated players. If you factor these in at the rating floor of 1400 you get the exact figure quoted on the site so I would guess that is how it was calculated.
