A number of players had to withdraw from the tournament (mainly due to exams) while several others did not turn up to round 1. Hopefully things will settle down for round 2.

With the wide gap between players there were only two upsets in the first round. Also Grayson Po’e-Tofaeono had Nathan Goodhue under pressure for some time, but Nathan was able to survive and win.

Upsets were:

Lucas Xiao drew with Richard Taylor
Michael Ma drew with Anderson Chen
