Wellington Rapid

Nic Croad was a lucky but in the end deserved winner of the Wellington Rapid. In a blitz finish with Anthony Ker mid way through the event, Croad, was defending a piece for a pawn down but was able to liquidate all the pawns where Ker's extra piece was useless. After this nobody else was able to catch up.

2nd IM Anthony Ker 5

3rd Edward Lee 4.5

Congrats to the four Palmy players who played - Justin Davis, Mathew King, Stewart Holdaway and Savern Rewei

I heard Davis missed a win against Tournament Winner FM Nic Croad ! Can we see this position or game ?
