    Thanks for posting all the games, Capa_Fan! Pleased to see Nigel Metge back on the NZ chess scene and having some success. Like you, he has stayed at my house in the past. For a while we were kind of related as his mum and my uncle were together.

    I assume Aus GM Darryl is leading the event.

    Who is Dylan Piwari? A new name to me. What club or O/S player? Tim Reilly is a good scalp.

    Round 7

    There are now three. Kirill Polishchuk has been joined by Anthony Ker and Ben Hague on 5 points. Kirill lost to tournament leader, GM Daniel Fernandez (ENG) while Anthony and Ben won against Dylan Piwari and Daniel Gong respectively. Russell Dive drew with IM Brandon Clarke (ENG) to be half a point behind.

    Who will be the New Zealand Champion depends mostly on who plays the Grandmasters in the final two rounds. No Kiwis have taken points off Fernandez yet and he is the next opponent for Ben Hague. Ben has however drawn with GM Papin and GM Johansen so should be happy with a hat trick. It is Kirill vs GM Papin, Anthony vs GM Johansen and Russell vs IM Sandler.
