2013 Commonwealth Championship

The 2013 Commonwealth Championship is under way in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, and I'm assuming the organisers are happy with the turnout. The Championship section (which is open to non Commonwealth players) has attracted a field of 314 players, while the B section has 567 players listed (although not all seem to have turned up).
In the Championship IM Andrew Brown is representing Australia, and currently has scored 2/3. At this stage there are still 26 players on 3/3, and so it will take more than a few rounds before a clear leader emerges.
The tournament runs until the 14th of July and you can get all the results at the official website.
