37th La Roda Torneo Internacional de Ajedrez

Brazilian GM Andre Diamant takes the trophy on better tiebreak

The 37th La Roda Torneo Internacional de Ajedrez was held from 31st March to 4th April, 2010, in Albacete, Spain. 205 players participated in a 9-round Swiss tournament with a time control of 90 minutes plus 30 seconds increment. The organizers have provided a rich prize fund of 11.000 EUR, with 2.200 EUR reserved for the winner.

Top-seeded GM Julio Granda Zuniga had a powerful start, having won six consecutive games, but then he suffered a setback against the 2008 Brazil champion GM Andre Diamant, and lost another with black pieces in the final round to slip down to the shared 8th place.

Andre Diamant used the opportunity and calmly drew the remaining two games for a final 7.5 points and a tied first place, together with Andalusian IM Jose Fernando Cuenca Jimenez. Diamant took the winner’s trophy on better tiebreak score.
