Jun-13-16  Mr. V: An American in Cuba!
Jun-13-16  Mr. V: Expect a lot of hard-fought games among these almost-elite.
Jun-13-16  pekda: Why is it showing the premier group here instead of the elite group with Leinier Dominguez Perez, Ivanchuk, Almasi, Cheparinov, etc.? Check the website, folks.

Jun-13-16  posoo: READ da CAPTION hoHutmun, he is in da ALETE section!
Jun-14-16  jphamlore: What a start to this event for Jeffery Xiong.
Jun-18-16  Mr. V: And a poor one for Sam Sevian. All the Cuban players have repeatedly shown their ability to overperform in team competitions; finally Ortiz Suarez is doing the same here as an individual.
