Recently Gary Lane took part in a tournament in New Zealand which was devised by Murray Chandler (and eventually won by him) and included Robert Wade making his first return to New Zealand in 56 years.  

The tournament was a 10 round Swiss in which Gary finished 13th= with 7 points.  

There were 193 competitors.

Not all the games are available but we have found the following.
