Last weekend, five Kapiti Club members (Guy Burns, Gordon Lyall, Geoffrey Gunawan, David Paul and David Scott) played in the Wellington Rapid, a tournament hosted by the Wellington Chess Club at the their club rooms [photos below].
This was a fun day, with six rounds played under a 25 + 5 time format. While none of the squad hit any of the major prize money, overall we came out with a pretty reasonable performance. Full results can be found here.
Meanwhile at the club this week, we saw a fun night of Blitz chess, with eight rounds of fast and furious chess. Coming out on top was Gordon Lyall with a perfect 8 from 8, followed by the two Davids on 6, and Guy Burns on 5.
Next week sees the start of the Club’s main event on its calendar, the Club Championship.
