David Paul scored a key win against leader Zoe Kingston, to bring him back into contention to defend his title. After tonight’s play, David, Tim and Zoe share the lead, closely followed by Dennis, Mike, Christy and John. This event has been conspicuous by the absence of Guy and Itay. Italy is back tonight and Guy will re-join the Tournament next week.

Don’t forget the Kapit Rapid Tournament on Sunday (5 September). Kapiti players who turn up at 8:00 and help with the running of the event will gain subsidised entry. We have had some good publicity with articles in Thursday’s Observer and the Kapiti Independent News. Check it out here.

First round of the club championships have begun. Glyns Mills played well to hold incumbent A grade champion—David Paul—to a draw. This is a two series championships comprising of 8 rounds per series (total of 16 rounds). The Championship is run on swiss format. A, B and C grade prizes will be based ratings—cut-off determined by Club Captain and approved by the Committee. There are plenty of more games to go for what is promising to be a hard fought contest in all grades.

The game of the night was between Zoe Kingston and David Paul—if David won, the John Kingston Memorial 60-60 Trophy is finally his—alone. But, the best laid plans of mice and men…..Zoe played superbly to take the game and place her name on her late father’s prize, along with David Paul and top junior Itay Ben-Dom. Alistair McGowan is a respectable runner-up. Junior runner-up is Christie Paul whose form has been strong all year. A special mention goes to Glyns Mills who has been playing extremely well over the tournament, and came very near to achieving several upset wins against higher rated players.

Next week (4 August) is round three of our 5 round Blitz (5 minute time frame) Tournament.

Kapiti Coast District Council (our landlord) has informed the Club, that, because of local-body elections—over the period 10 September to 15 October—the Club will using the Community Centre (100 meters to the West of Library) for Wednesday night games.

A sound win against Itay Ben-Dom places Zoe Kingston into contention for sharing the John Kingston Memorial 60-60 Trophy. All eyes will be on her game next week—most probably against David Paul who is leading this event by one point.

Guy Burns is regretting turning down a draw offer from Itay Ben-Dom, who capitalised on a mistake to win the game.
