2019 Club Champs wrap up
The final round of the Club Championships was played this week, and we now have confirmed winners for 2019. Congratulations to the champions in each of our grades.
|A Grade||B Grade||C Grade|
|Gordon Lyall (first)||Geoffrey Gunawan (first)||Mark Summers (first)|
|Ross Jackson (second)||Brandon Holman (second)||Valera Bonyushkin (second)|
Gordon Lyall backed up his win from last year to retain the A grade title for another year, half a point ahead of Ross Jackson. Geoffrey Gunawan takes out the B grade, having shown some impressive improvement over this year. While amongst the younger ranks, Mark Summers has also been in great form and despite missing three rounds, takes this year’s C grade winning all but one of his games. This link here features a nice win of his from Round 11. Full final results of the 2019 Kapiti Chess Champs can be found here.
That now wraps up formal games at the Club for this year. Next week is prizegiving, supper and the traditional club simul against the Club Champion. Please bring some food, and friends and family are very welcome too. See you there!
