A coin toss has decided the top seed’s colour, and Dylan will have white. Despite a couple of absences this year, the top ten seeds are a combined 600 points higher-rated than last year, with Dylan and Ross the two strongest players ever to play in the tournament.
The entry list isn’t final, and we will take late entries tomorrow – albeit that they may have to be satisfied with a round 1 bye and maybe a competitive friendly against one of the first players finished.
