  1. Hello,

    I’m very sorry but it seems like I will miss at least two games (busy on two Monday’s), which was unexpected.

    Would it be possible if you could withdraw me from the tournament? I will give up my spot.

    Sorry for the trouble this change has caused..

    1. Jeffrey Xu has withdrawn. Raymond Gao was the 17th player when pairings were drawn, and was promised the first opportunity to join if a spot became open. One has, and he has now agreed to join.

  2. Apparently the ratings for the Reserves section haven’t been updated, whereas the ratings for the Championship section have.

    1. There was still an extra unplayed game in the reserves. All the results are in now, and it should be updated next week.
