2014 Australian Junior Chess Championship

With the 2014 Australian Championship finished, the 2014 Australian Junior Championship now takes centre stage. This 250+ player event began in Sydney on Saturday, and already some of the younger age tournaments have been completed.
In the Under 10's Championship Bobby Yu won with a perfect 9/9, while brother and sister Cassandra and Christopher Lim finished second and third respectively. The Under 8's Championship finished in a tie between Jay Landau and Sebastian Bracks, with both score 8/9. The first playoff games were tied 1-1 before Landau won the Blitz playoff 2-0.
The Under 18 and Under 16 events are also underway, with FM Anton Smirnov already leading the Under 18. The Under 14 and Under 12 Championship starts on Wednesday, along with the Girls events.
Full results from all the events can be found at the tournament website.
