Round One – Dec 4

The tournament begins with 38 players in three sections. The first round of a Swiss always pits favourites against underdogs, and there are always a few dogs who pull off an upset. In the Crown, Max England (2071) defeats Sergey Malakhovets (2237). In U1800, Dragan Jevtic (1475) holds against Bob Armstrong (1711) and Evgeny Kalmanson (1346) gets a promising position against Michael Saltat (1503), but only manages to draw. And in U1400 Ambarish Chandra (731) scores an upset win from the black side of a Sicilian against Rose Tuong (1046).
