2012 ANU Open - A strong field likely

With a week and a half to go, the 2012 ANU Open is already looking like a very strong tournament. So far there are 13 players rated above 2000, with a number of titled players in the mix. The cut-off for early entries is this Friday, so hopefully the field for this event, and the Under 1600 tournament, will grow in both strength and numbers over the next few days.
If you want to see a list of current entries, I am updating them pretty regularly, at the ANU Chess Club website.  You can also check out entries at a tournament management website I am testing, The direct link to the ANU Open is You can even download the tournament brochure from there, otherwise tournament information can also be found here.
The tournament will start at 10:00 on Saturday 28 July. I hope to have some live broadcasting up and running (at least the top board), so watch this blog for further details.

Hi Shaun,

Is the U1600 division of the ANU Open based on ACF or FIDE ratings?
