Leonardo Krysa wins the Semifinal to the 2013 Argentine Absolute Championship

The Semifinal to the 88th Absolute Argentine Championship is taking place on 13th – 21st July at the Circulo de Ajedrez de Villa Martelli – Laprida 3837.

The first six placed participants qualified to the Absolute Argentine Championship, which will be played from August 24th to September 6th at Provincia de Chaco with 100.000 pesos in prizes.

Five players shared first place after obtaining 6.5/9 points. The tiebreak scores decided who would get the first prizes. IM Leonardo Krysa was declared first, followed by experienced GM Sergio Slipak and IM Lucas Liascovich.

The main interest of the players was to qualify to the Absolute Championship, so most of the interest was put on who would get the coveted sixth place in the standings. The young FM Kevin Paveto got the pass, leaving out the two rating favorites – GMs Salvador Alonso and Diego Valerga.
