Number of the Day & Round 1 in pictures!

Whew, our Scorekeeper worked overtime to add all those players to the tournament. After the dust had settled, we counted 860 players, but that was before some late enrollments were added, which got us to the final count of 865 players! That’s quite a lot and that meant we had plenty to do when it came to taking pictures of them during Round 1…

We will play 8 rounds of Swiss today, we will then do a cut and the best 256 players will then move on to day 2, where they will play an additional 2 rounds before we enter the knock out portion of the tournament, with the best 64 players being eligible to enter this part.
