2018 Kapiti 2000 Rapid

A successful 2018 Kāpiti Rapid was run today. Jeremy Knowles took top prize, closely followed by the strong Junior player Ryan Winter. Current Kāpiti Champion Alan Winfield scored a respectable 3rd place.

The Kāpiti 2000 was a new chess tournament, open to all chess players with a rapid Elo rating under 2000. The Tournament was held on Sunday 27 May 2018 at the Kāpiti Chess Club Rooms in the Paraparaumu District Library at 9 Ivor Trask Place, Paraparaumu.

Overall the event was a success, with 19 players turning up from throughout the Wellington area. There was plenty of excitement and top quality games, as well as some valuable lessons learned for the club going forward. We hope to repeat the tournament in future years and make it even bigger and better!
