A PGN file of a handful of games from round 1 is now available on the official SIO site. Also, in case you missed it, pairings are published very quickly over at chess-results.com. If you're a participant, these are also displayed over at the Marriott Hotel, possibly somewhere in the lobby.
For our Pinoy fans, there are some notable clashes to keep an eye on. Board 1 will see JJ de Ramos face off against GM Zhang Zhong, and further down to seventh board we have GM Antonio on the black side against Pinoy-Aussie Edsil Dilla. Watch out also for Ramon Manon-og Jr against GM Dejan Antic as well as a very familiar name, Kimberley Cunanan, who plays against FM Metz of Germany.
A handful of our Malaysian readers will be interested in the board 19 contest today between their man, IM Mas Hafizul, playing against FM Daniel Howard Fernandez. Might be a tough one straight up for Mas who is on a hunt for that elusive GM norm.
