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 Kapiti 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.
