North Shore Open is on this weekend and here are the entries for the A grade as shown on the North Shore club's website. Most interest will be centered around the presence of IM Puchen Wang. This is Puchen's first tournament in New Zealand since April 2008. Not sure if he is back permanently from Dallas or just here on a visit.

Good result for Puchen Wang. I wonder if he is just back briefly. Will be looking at the results page for further information on pairings and placements.
