Smurfo Wins First Game

It's on. The six-game match between Australian GM David Smerdon and IM Puchen Wang of New Zealand began today with the Aussie winning with the black pieces in 56 moves. The official site has both live coverage and downloadable PGNs.

Smerdon won Queenstown and the Zonal. Puchen Wang is now one point down, with a big task in front of him.

A Smerdon vs Chandler Match would be even more interesting.

Can Smerdon now claim to be the Aussie no.1 ?

I have this feeling Puchen is going to get pooned in this match.
