Calling all punters! With $2700 in prizes still up for grabs, the MCC Open is a big chance to catch up on your absent rivals in the 2013 MCC Grand Prix! The under 1800 section has opened up with no entry from current leader Jason Chew or 4th place holder Anthony Hain! In the under 1500 section, Dan Dobos' absence means a number of players can jump up the leader-board and into the prize money. With Gary Bekker & Jason Chew currently in line for the open division, the standings are even closer than they seem (players can only win one prize). For a look at the Grand Prix standings, check out this page, and remember you can still enter the MCC open up until round 3! Contact arbiter Kerry Stead on 0412-862-630 or kerry.stead@bigpond.com.
