2012 World Junior Championship

There are two Australian representatives in the 2012 World Junior, which started yesterday in Athens, Greece. IM Andrew Brown is seeded 69th (out of 130 players), while Fedja Zulfic is seeded 97th. Browns seeding meant he was paired against 4th seed GM Richard Rapport, with the GM winning that game. Zulfic fared better, drawing his game against IM Ulvi Bajarani.
The event is over 13 rounds (2 more than the Olympiad btw), and live coverage is available from the tournament website.
