Play begins at 09:42 MET (GMT+1h) at the first of three events in this year's MISO: a one-day nine-game early bird.

14 players in the upper division are competing for €400 in prizes; another 24 players in the lower division are contending for €200. We have six countries represented at this event — Australia, England, Ireland, Israel, Malta and Scotland — and a range of players from 2017-rated Austin Shin (Eng) to first-time WESPA event player Kevin Pirotta (MLT).

We are playing to WESPA version 2 rules, with 5-point per-word penalties, adjudicating Collins Scrabble Words (2012 edition) using the freshly released NASPA Zyzzyva version 3.0.4. My name is John Chew, I'll be reporting on the event as time permits, while directing it solo (and missing my longtime codirector).
