  mckmac: Well, I had never heard of this gentleman before today, but as of now, he is leading The New Zealand Championships by a clear point(6/2/0). Strong field too.

  Benzol: <mckmac> Matthew I'm hoping that 120th New Zealand Championship (2012) will be opened soon for kibitzing.

  Jonathan Sarfati: Scott is unusual for chessplayers in that he was a late developer. IIRC he was raised in Nelson so had few opportunities as a junior and was only rated 1510 at 21. But he continued to study and improve so that after another 21 years he was an FM rated 2350 FIDE. He won the 120th New Zealand Championship (2012) by a large margin and in convincing fashion with very strong classical play.
