Two rounds are behind us and the first decisive game is yet to be played. This does not mean that there is a lack of fighting spirit. Two out of the three games in the second round lasted more than 70 moves. Ernesto Inarkiev tried to squeeze a win in a rook endgame against Leinier Dominguez, while Zoltan Almasi looked for chances against Yuniesky Quesada in an opposite-colored bishop endgame.

In the Premier Section, there were some changes in the lineup. The playing field actually got stronger with the substitutions that were made. Two strong Cuban FMs joined the roster: Yasel Borges Feria (2426) and Roberto Carlos Sanchez (2409). After 2 rounds, Plinio Pazos and Yanira Vigoa are the leaders with 1.5/2.

The biggest surprise came in the Open Section I, where Lazaro Bruzon appeared as a last minute inclusion, after a surprising postponement of the Central-american zonal in Costa Rica. The strong Cuban GM is the first seed, but will have a hard time against a very tough field, which includes Chilean GM Ivan Morovic, Cuban GM Yusnel Bacallao and Dutch GM Robin Swinkels. Full lineups below.
