2013 Kapiti Rapid Tournament

The Kapiti Rapid annual regional tournament was held Saturday 7 September and Kapiti players performed well in a strong but small field, which included current NZ chess champion Scott Wastney and former 12 time NZ champion Anthony Ker. The event was jointly won by the current champion Scott Wastney and a determined Michael Nyberg, who piqued Ker on time in the last round. Kapiti players Mike O’Rorke and Alistair McGowan came runner up in the combined B and C grade session, half a point behind the young and talented Wellington player Layla Timergazi.
