    I don't see why it's odd that Helen Milligan and Alexandra Jule have chosen to play in the Zonal rather than the Women's Zonal. Interesting maybe, but not odd. If there were male players playing in the Women's Zonal that would be odd.

    If a tie occurs between players eligible for the IM and FM titles have the organise/arbiter announced what tie breaking method they will use to determine who gets the IM and FM titles.

    Does any one know what tie-break method will be used, if it is needed?

    Was it made public before the tourament started, or will just choose one?? Seriously hope the aribters did so??

    Four more rounds to go. A bit too early to consider tie-breaks.

    Having had a look around I see that the tie-break procedures are specified on the entry form.

    Agreed. It's up to them not only to be honest, but to be seen to be honest.
