Antic Leads NSW

Unlike their Victorian cousins, who have a fully dedicated and independent website, our NSWCA guys are solely relying on Chess Chat to provide updates on this tournament. Still, I guess we have to be thankful. In these info-starved times anything will do.

After 4 rounds, the Serbian visitor GM Dejan Antic and Hungarian IM Andras Toth both lead on 4/4 points. GM Ian Rogers had a setback in round 2 when he drew with local Sydney player Jason Hu. Another good result was that of Jason Chan's victory over FM Igor Bjelobrk in round 3 yesterday.

In the Victorian Open, Chris Wallis leads outright on 5 points. Note that GM Daryl Johansen, earlier confirmed as an entry, seems to have withdrawn from the tournament. I wonder why.
