Sydneysider to Face IM

FM Lee Jones will play against Indian international master R.R. Laxman in the seventh round after yesterday defeating WCM G.V. Wijesuriya. With that win the Sydneysider improves his position to 3 points after 6 games.

English grandmaster Nigel Short leads the tournament on 5.5 points alongside international master M.R. Venkatesh.

In unrelated news, last Friday - Lee Jones' father, Brian, played host to the Sydney International Open fund raising dinner. Brian reports that it was a big success. Nearly 100 people attended and over AUD$5000 was raised.
