    New Zealand Rapid

    Anthony Ker was impressive, not just in winning the NZ Rapid title for the 6th time, but also winning the tournament overall with 7.5 points from 9 rounds. This included turning the tables on GM Daniel Fernandez with a win in round 6 and draws with GM Vasily Papin and IM Brandon Clarke in rounds 4 and 5. In second place were Brandon and Vasily. Russell Dive was the next best Kiwi on 6 points with a big flock, 8 in all, on 5.5 points.

    A very impressive result indeed. Ker also won the NZ Lightning title as the highest placed Kiwi with 6.5/9, a point clear of the next Kiwi, and winning his game against GM Fernandez here too. The tournament winners were IM Brandon Clarke (ENG) and the veteran (71yo) IM Herman Claudius van Riemsdijk (BRA) on 7; and Ker tied with GMs Fernandez, Papin, and Johansen.

    “There’s no point blaming the tragedies of socialism on the flaws or corruption of particular leaders. Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell

    No..only ever played in it once. Any not yet a CC GM - and probably never will be now as engines have killed the CC experience. More into 960 chess now.
