Aussies OS Update

Just a quick round up of other Aussie results OS (apart from Smerdon and the World Youth).

IM Alex Wohl ended the XVII Open Internacional de la Pobla de Lillet on 6/9 points. The last round was a draw against GM Thomas Luther. There's a picture of Alex here.

And well done to Matthew Sonter, of Queensland, who played in the Prima Pack Cup in Olomouc. Starting with 0/2, Matthew hunkered down to avoid further defeats finishing on 6/10 points in the six-player double RR event. He placed third overall behind Parligras, with 8 points, and Cagasik, on 7 points.

In the separate IM C section tournament in Olomouc, WIM Petra Blazkova had a much harder time. A former coach at the Gardiner Chess Centre, the Czech national posted 6 losses, 4 draws and 1 win.

Lastly, in the Romanian Open, Nur Yachou has 2.5 points after 6 games. He will play WIM Paloma Gutierrez next. Paloma, by the way, was a recent visitor to Australia and played in the Sydney International Open.
