Just browsing the NZ Chess calendar and see that this event is to be staged on the weekend of Sat 28 and Sun 29 Jan.I wonder how many of the top NZ players that are playing in Queenstown will make the effort to travel to the other end of the country 4 days from finishing the Queenstown event to play these events.I suppose the Auckland players will make a strong showing.One good aspect about the Lightning, is that the time control is now 3+2 instead of the previous 5+0 so I would have no excuse for losing games like K+R vs K+N on time.

From what I've been told, due to some miscommunication, the designated arbiter is still in Queenstown.
So, the "chess parent" is suddenly the arbiter for this event. :eek: :eek:
I found out about this 15 minutes before start of round1 (also 15 minutes after entries close).

I'll post whatever information I can.

Sorry, no live boards, they are probably still on their way back from Queenstown. ;)

Crosstable after round4.
Round5 currently underway.

Ratings are NZCF rapid ratings or estimated from whatever rating source we could use in 10 minutes.
I'll polish things up later tonight. So ratings etc. may change in later posts.

NZ Rapid Championships 2012 has 9 rounds.
Rate of play: 25minutes for all moves with 5seconds increment per move.

Rounds 1 to 6 on Saturday 28 January 2012.
Rounds 7 to 9 on Sunday 29 January 2012.

Looks like rapid is not the new NZ Champion's main game. 2/4.

Good to see Tony Carpenter playing!

Congrats to Keong for stepping in and keeping us apprised of progress!!

Thanks for the updates, with 3 rounds to go today it is too tight to call with any of the top 15 still being in contention.I guess Ker will be determined to make a strong performance after a lack lustre Queenstown performance and it is good to see Herman Van Riemsdijk playing as he is the only international competitor playing that also played in Queenstown.

It's a decent field contesting the NZ Rapid Championship. The ranking according to the NZCF rapid top 50 rating list is 1 - Ker, 3 - Hague, 5 - Garbett, 9 - Smith, 10 - Steadman, 11 - Watson, 16 - Thornton, 17 - Pinic, 21 - Han, 24 - Carpinter, 26 - Ansell, 31 - Stuart, 34 - Krstev, 42 - Gao and 45 - Shen. Bruce Wheeler hasn't played a rapid tournament since 2008 so is not included in the top 50 list. Luke Li, one of five co-leaders, is only 55th but that should change after this tournament.

Anthony Ker is the 2011 Champion. He won with 8/9, a point ahead of Paul Garbett, Bob Smith and Mike Steadman, all of whom are still in contention.
