Cristhian Barros and Paula Rodriguez are 2013 Pan-american U20 champions

The Americas Chess Confederation and the Colombian Chess Federation organized the 2013 Pan-american U20 Championships for Men and Women on 9th-14th July in Bogota, Colombia.

The tournament was played at the Salon Presidente del Instituto Distrital de Recreación y Deportes (IDRD), Centro de Alto Rendimiento de Coldeportes, calle 63 47-06.

Colombian WIM Paula Rodriguez was crowned U20 Pan-american women’s champion for the third time.

Ecuadorian FM Cristhian Barros got his IM title and first GM norm by winning the Absolute tournament, edging favorites IM Martin Martinez, who finished second, and Peruvian IM Giuseppe Leiva, who got the bronze medal.

The championships were very hard-fought and the titles were not decided until the very last round. The organization published all the games played and relayed more than 50% of the games live.
