FIDEL CORRALES JIMENEZ
(born Jul-07-1987, 30 years old) Cuba (federation/nationality United States of America)

[what is this?]
Grandmaster (2008). Winner of the XIX Guillermo Garcia in Memoriam 2009, 4th in the 30th Open Internacional de Ajedrez "Villa de Benasque" 2010, 5th in the Open Ciutat de Balaguer (Spain) 2010, and 3rd in the Miquel Mas Open (Spain) 2010. Jimenez qualified for the World Cup (2011) through the 2011 American Continental Championship, but was eliminated in the first round by Hungarian super-GM Judit Polgar.

He was temporarily delisted from FIDE's player database as he was no longer a member of a national federation after Cuban officialdom refused to allow him back into Cuba because of a prolonged absence of over 6 months from that country. However, he was subsequently relisted under FIDE's flag until he became eligible to play for the USA.

He is a member of the Webster University chess team and applied to play for the USCF once he had been in the US for two years.

  twinlark: Anyone have any idea why Corrales has been delisted from FIDE?

  twinlark:

Corrales is a Cuban exile. He was just interviewed by Maurice Ashley at the US Championships. It transpires that Corrales is now officially stateless, an exile from Cuba, as he is not allowed to return to his homeland (under Cuban rules!) for more than 5 years due to the fact that he overstayed his trip to the US.

He is putting a brave face on this - it clearly pains the young man - as almost his entire family and related clan are in Cuba, apart from a couple of distant cousins in Miami.

His statelessness also means that his FIDE card has been pulled until he finds a federation, which will be the US in due course, with which to register.

Jul-07-13  waustad: I saw in a post by Natalia Pogonina on the Tatiana Kosintseva page that there is a site that records federation changes: http://ratings.fide.com/fedchange.p... I wonder what determines the price for making the change. Does anybody here know?

  twinlark: No, but I'm fascinated that Spassky is on the list and that his transfer fee is 10,000 Euro (nearly $US13,000).

  Stonehenge: From the bio:

<Has been delisted from FIDE's player database as he is no longer a member of a national federation.>

http://ratings.fide.com/card.phtml?..., Federation: FIDE.

I've also noticed that there are a bunch of Albanians from ex-Yugoslavia that have FIDE as their federation, and no longer Serbia. I guess they are from Kosovo?

  twinlark: Thanks <Stonehenge>. I've made the necessary adjustment to the bio.

  Stonehenge: Hector Elissalt Cardenas is also listed under FIDE's flag now.
Apr-05-14  Eastfrisian: Currently he is listed as a player from the USA.
Nov-05-14  waustad: He is listed on the transfers page as switching to the USA on 2014-03-21. http://ratings.fide.com/fedchange.p...
