Round 4 Club Champs
The annual Kāpiti Rapid Chess tournament is on this Saturday, and with the interest shown so far, it promises to be another great day of chess on the Kāpiti Coast. All are welcome. See here for details how to join in. You can also follow it on Vega here.
Round 4 of the Club Champs this week. Geoffrey Gunawan followed up his earlier draw against Club Champ Gordon Lyall, with a 22-move win over top-rated Club player Ross Jackson – some 490 rating points higher! See their game here. Geoffrey now leads outright on 3½ from 4, with Gordon next on 3 (see his game here), followed by a chasing pack on 2½. Full current standings and results can be found here. With three more rounds left in the competition, the Tom Powell Trophy is still up for grabs. Will Geoffrey continue his good form, or will the bigger guns, or even one of the lesser guns, prevail! Stay tuned.
