2013 Australian Junior Championship

The 2013 Australian Junior Championship starts tomorrow on the at Bond University, Gold Coast, Queensland. As of a few days ago there were 210 entries across all the tournaments, and I suspect there will be a few late entries. Top seed in the Under 18's is Yi Yuan from ACT, who is making a comeback after completing his Year 12 exams. FM Gene Nakauchi, who was on the top boards for a lot of the recent Australian Open is second seed, while Pengyu Chen and Yi Liu will also be in contention for the title.
The Under 18's, Under 16's, Under 10's and Under 8's begin tomorrow, while the other age groups (and Girls events) begin later in the week. Full details of the tournament (results and possibly live games) are available at the tournament website.
