IM Gary Lane perfect in Fiji

Australian IM Gary Lane scored a perfect 7/7 to win the 2016 Fiji International Open. The tournament top seed (by over 300 rating points) was a class above his opponents, finishing 2 points clear of 2nd placed CM Calvin Prasad (Fiji). There was a big tie for 3rd on 4.5, with WIM Nancy Lane having the best tie-break.
The 26 player event attracted players from Australia New Zealand and the host country. For some of the local players it was a good warm up for upcoming chess olympiad, while for the visitors it was a chance to combine chess with week in the tropical sun.
