It was another draw yesterday for David Smerdon as he now moves up to 3 points after 6 games. His opponent was GM Tibor Foragasi (2425) and now faces another grandmaster in Goran Todorovic (2471) in the seventh round. Standings update:
5.0 Caruana, Fabiano
4.0 Ilincic, Zlatko
3.5 Fruebing, Stefan
3.0 Todorovic, Goran M; Bui, V.; Smerdon, D.
2.5 Fogarasi, Tibor; Kjartansson, Gudmundur
2.0 Vernay, Clovis
1.5 Hammes, Michael
I should acknowledge and thank the arbiter, Kovács Ernő, for including me in the daily event updates. It's a big help, I'm sure, also for chess fans Down Under. Cheers to David, too, for letting me know of his European adventures! Good luck.

By my calculations, Dave can't get a GM norm, even if he wins his last 3 games? That's a pity, if I am right, but I am sure that last norm will come soon and this is great experience for him.
is the ANU open thing coming up? where do u park?
There's a map in Shaun's blog here
It's been awhile since we've play a tournament at Fenner Hall, but there used to be plenty of parking actually at Fenner and also in the street behind.
can you park at ANU and walk or is it too far?
will you be playing TCG?
can someone answer my questions please.
Sorry! Been a bit busy with work - not so much time to play...
I asked Gareth and he said it is a fair walk from ANU, so not that good to park there. He says there are about 20 visitor parks, as well as res parking. Not sure if you would be able to park in res parkign though. There is a fair bit of parking in the streets around.
Hope this helps.
will you be there TCG?
No, will you?
sure, if i can fit it in
