Wow! What an opening day. We've already got a couple of upsets. Regrettably, I had to make a quick dash to Sydney to meet up with some folks, so I missed all the action. Anyhow, we've got the first few photos up on flickr.
Igor Goldenberg, on the right, fell victim today to Sydneysider Max Illingworth. The FIDE Master from Victoria will want to quickly get back on track, but he has a tough assignment tomorrow against another Sydneysider, Andrew Bird.
