Congratulations Puchen Wang

Puchen Wang is this year's New Zealand Champion after winning the 114th New Zealand Chess Congress with 9 points from 11 games. Like Zhao in the just concluded Australian Open, Wang also took a quick draw in the last round and promptly headed off the cinema with his opponent. That's according to this report by the Wanganui Chronicle.

Australia's Tim Reilly collected 6.5 points. Below is the Aussie's loss to the eventual winner.

Games and complete tables are available from the official website.
