2008 Australian Masters

This event has somehow slipped my mind, but as an old saying says, "better late than sorry". Please don't quote me on that because I may not always abide by the saying. This was a 9-round FIDE- and ACF-rated round robin event. The top seed was Stephen Solomon (2470).

Here are the final results
1st FM Vladimir Smirnov (2338) 7/9
2nd IM Guy West (2342) 6.5/9
3rd IM Stephen Solomon
