    I played there 2 years ago. Great venue. Wanganui is a nice little town, too. The air there is good for the lungs.

    Round 8 live boards

    Stuart, P - Steadman, M
    Reilly, T - Ker, A
    Wang, P - Dive, R

    Puchen leads with 6.5/7 followed by Dive on 6/7. Ker and Steadman are one point further back in third on 5/7. So todays match up between leaders Puchen and Dive becomes very important, and should be great viewing...

    Final Results:

    Puchen Wang wins his first NZ Championship with 9/11
    Anthony Ker and Russell Dive were 2nd= on 7.5/11
    Mike Steadman and Robert Smith were 4th= on 7/11

    A big win for Puchen, with a 1.5 point lead over 2nd=. I'm not sure exactly how old he is, around 15 or 16 ... so this could well be his first of many wins.
