Australian Open Update
Round 3 of the Australian Open saw the first big clashes on boards one to three with each game going to the higher seeded player. I quite liked this game, Johansen vs Smirnov. It's very typical of Smirnov's style of play. He just goes straight for the throat. But GM Daryl Johansen is a very solid player.
Daryl's next opponent is the only other Aussie grandmaster, Ian Rogers.
And as promised, the organisers have produced the first of their regular bulletins. The first one can now be downloaded here. A PGN file is also now available.
