Palmerston North Chess Club Rapid Championship
6 round swiss, 25 +5, 16 players
1st Justin Davis (1911) 6/6
2nd Dennis Davey (1304) 5/6
3rd= Mathew King (1676) & Stephen Taylor (1592) 4/6
5th= Stewart Holdaway (1580) , Charles Ker (2002) , JuYoung Kim & Ricky Kim 3/6
With a perfect score Justin Davis has added the Rapid Championship to his list of victories at the Palmy club. After a out of form performance at the Gordon Memorial Rapid he avenged himself and seems to be well on his way to taking first (or first equal) in every Palmy club event!
Dennis Davey also had an excellent result to finish second above many higher rated players, while Wanganui Champ Charles Ker seems to be struggling to prove his dominance as the top rated player in Palmerston North.
All eyes will now be focused on the club champs and how to stop the Davis train!
