2014 World Youth

The 2014 World Youth Championship is underway in Durban, South Africa. This has always been a huge event, and is one of the largest international events on the calendar. In fact it has grown so large that it is being split into two separate tournaments in future years.
Despite the travel distance (which seems to be an issue for any non-European event) there are over 70 federations represented. Australia seems to be have a large group of players, and are represented across a number of age groups.
Along side the tournament is a big Open event, which seems to have attracted a strong field. Both events (Open and Youth) have coverage of the top boards on the tournament website. The rounds start at midnight Canberra time, although this might be a little tough unless you are a night owl.
