Three Australian reps - FM Brian Jones, Lachlan Benson, Oleg Korenevski.

All performing about to rating so far, on 2.5, 2 and 1/4 respectively.

16 GMs in field albeit only 3 over 2500 so perhaps not as strong as some past runnings. (Brian played a GM in first round.)

http://www.arcoworldchess.com/ and scroll down to find the link to "20 Campionato Mondiale" etc. Also a live games link with a stupendous number of live games.

(Pet gripe: all pages should have their own URL!)

A hard web site to folow. My browser will translate some but not all content into English.

This is a Seniors event which started with a good entry of 220+.

So far we have lost two players. One player (from Norway) died of a heart attack during Round 2.

This morning another player went off in an ambulance.

Only two more rounds to go!! :eek:
