Round 1

Pictures from round 1:

No major upsets in the first round. White took 3½ out of 5 points and all rating favorites won their games except for the game between CM Krzysztof Belzo and IM Fred Berend. It was the longest game in the tournament and an even game all the way so draw was probably a fair result.
