The draw has been made for the first round of this weekend’s Malahide Millennium tournament.
In the Senior, Dylan is up against Gerry McElligott CM, one of five titled players in the draw.
In the Intermediate, top seed Mariusz has white against Fergal O’Beirne. I have black against Tom Fitzpatrick, Ross is black against Robert Murtagh of Trinity, Odhrán – who’s the 12th seed, surprisingly! – has black against Sergey Beryozkin from Dún Laoghaire, Mihailo has white against Alex Goss, while Anastasija – playing up as last year’s Junior champion – is white against Irish team-mate Alice O’Gorman.
First round is 10am on Saturday. There’s still time to enter – subsequent entrants won’t change the above pairings, but would be paired against each other.
