Facing a Dutch Storm

The two guys from Down Under set off to earn their international master titles, but, sadly, they've ran into some Dutch trouble. After 6 rounds, FM Tomek Rej has garnered only 1 point courtesy of two draws, while fellow FIDE master Michael Steadman is barely doing any better. The Kiwi is on one and a half.

Here's Rej losing to candidate master Tex de Wit.
