* Chess Event Description
Capablanca Memorial (2016)

See Capablanca Memorial (Elite) (2016) for the elite section. The Capablanca Memorial (2015) was the most previous event of the series. American Jeffery Xiong and Cuba's Isan Reynaldo Ortiz Suarez each lead with 5 points after 8 (now 6/9 for Jeffery Xiong, 6/9 for Isan Reynaldo Ortiz Suarez) out of nine rounds total in the round-robin event.

Pairings (9th round):

After the results of the 8th round, either Isan Reynaldo Ortiz Suarez (who is playing Yuniesky Quesada Perez (he finished with 5/9) with black) or the winner of Kamil Dragun <1-0> Yuri Gonzalez Vidal all still have chances to catch up to 5 points in total, but would require a win to upset the leaderboard (for the latter pairing, but not yet the former, which has since not occurred at the 9th round to affect 1st place).

Angel Arribas Lopez <0-1> Xiong (Angel Arribas Lopez finishes with 3), Yusnel Bacallao Alonso <-> Camilo Ernesto Gomez Garrido (Yusnel Bacallao Alonso finishes with 4, Camilo Ernesto Gomez Garrido with 3) and Samuel Sevian <1-0> Ivan Morovic-Fernandez are the remaining pairings (so Kamil Dragun finishes with 6, and Yuri Gonzalez Vidal with 4).

Leader-board (9th round, with all possible 45 points registered so far):

1st Jeffery Xiong - 6

2nd-3rd Kamil Dragun, Isan Reynaldo Ortiz Suarez - each 6 (the latter of these 2 won 2nd place on Sonneborn-Berger(1) scores)

4th Yuniesky Queseda Perez - 5, 5th Yuri Gonzalez Vidal - 4

Yusnel Bacallao Alonso - 4 (Samuel Sevian (with 4/9) might also still tie for share of 6th-7th before tiebreaks, but would require a final round win against Ivan Morovic-Fernandez (with 2/9) of Chile).

Camilo Ernesto Gomez Garrido of Cuba finishes with 3/9 and Angel Arribas Lopez still only has 3/9 (due to a submitted correction slip waiting to be fixed(1) on his 6th round game against Kamil Dragun - does anyone know this correct score? Their 6th round bulletin result and crosstable result do not seem to match).

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-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.
