Week 3, and rounds 5 and 6 of the Leo Eichholtz 25+5 rapid tournament played this week at the Kāpiti Chess Club. Gordon Lyall continued his unbeaten run winning both games, against David Paul, and Brandon Holman. He now has an unbeatable lead with two rounds to go and is guaranteed at a least a share of the Trophy. Congratulations Gordon! Mike O’Rorke also had a good night winning against Lars Dobbertin-King and Guy Burns. Standings after six weeks: Gordon Lyall, 6 from 6; Pavlo Chudinov and David Scott on 4, followed by a large bunch on 3. See full results here.
