Just arrived at the tournament. It looks like only 12 players have entered with Ker and Wastney as the top seeds, it is not rated so could be in for some wild games. Will hopefully be able to update results if time allows.

1st=Wastney and Nyberg 5/6
3rd=Ker and Burns 4/6
Some key match ups were Ker-Wastney 0-1 Wastney-Burns 1-0 Nyberg-Burns 1-0 Nyberg-Ker 1-0 interesting result in Nyberg-Ker game as it was the last round and Ker had a pawn advantage in a R+3pawn vs R+2pawn all on the kingside ending. Ker was pressing for a win but overstepped the time limit.Forgot to mention that Nyberg also beat Wastney 1-0in a Fritz variation of the 2 Knights defense and Nyberg had early 1st round loss against local Kapiti player Alister McGowan.
