Oliver Gonzalez Memorial

Oliver Gonzalez Memorial – Day Eight

Report by WGM Anna Rudolf

IM David Larino takes the sole lead in the Oliver Gonzalez Memorial by winning in the 8th round against IM Alejandro Moreno, while the other players with 6 points, GM Ibragim Khamrakulov and FM David Anton, drew their game against each other and IM Pablo Almagro lost against GM Oleg Korneev, who had 5.5/7.

It is worth to mention that GM Khamrakulov held a worse position against FM Anton after arriving to the playing hall 55 minutes late (the waiting time is 1 hour!). Another phenomenon happened from board 5 to 9: the players with black won all their games!

The second karaoke night was a much bigger success than the first, and was attended by over 20 participants of the Memorial.
