A few things starting to become clear in 06 Black parity-
BJE have upgraded a couple of pieces and grab an at large bid coming out of their bracket at 3-1. Had a pretty easy draw but they can hang it seems.
MMF are going to White and may not win a game in Black parity. May struggle at White parity as well.
Jr Friars to White likely end up silver
SSK have improved but they will be where they were last year
The rest is turning out pretty much Denny Green - they are who we thought they were.
