  Benzol: Guillermo Garcia Gonzalez
Born 9th December 1953 in Las Villas
Awarded the IM title in 1974 and the GM title in 1976 He was Cuban champion in 1974, 1976 and 1983.
Feb-25-05  chenturini: The cuban GM Guillermo Garcia died in car accident in 1991, I think, because in "hispanoamerica" GARCIA is a frequent last name, with GONZALEZ as mother last name, exists a high grade of confussion.

  Fusilli: <chenturini: The cuban GM Guillermo Garcia died in car accident in 1991> According to this website on Cuban chess he actually died on October 26, 1990, as chenturini says, in a car accident: http://www.cuba.cu/ajedrez/maestros... The website also specifies that he died as he prepared to play in the Novi Sad Olympiad.

Dec-09-12  Vermit: If this player was born in 1953, then I suspect the games dating from 1963 and 1964 belong to another player.

  Jim Bartle: Possible. Garcia and Gonzalez are two of the most common family names in Spanish.

  perfidious: <Vermit> and <Jim> Most definitely: the 1963 games both belong to Gilberto Garcia, and the version against O'Kelly given here is incomplete, as White actually resigned after 58 moves, not 40.

Going to dig a bit more and figure out who played the '64 games. Off to submit a correction for the '63 games.

About the 1964 games, a good candidate is http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches.... He is also Cuban, age-appropriate for Sochi 1964, AND he played in Sochi 1965. (There are several games on his page from that tournament.) I don't think every misclassification of Guillermo Garcia's games has to come from another G.Garcia. If the original data only said Garcia and Cuba, it would be easy to misattribute Silvino Garcia's games to Guillermo Garcia, the most famous Cuban Garcia player.

Of course, the easiest way out would be if someone can check the crosstable for Sochi 1964. My quick and dirty online search turned out nothing, but again, it was quick and dirty.

Jan-07-13  Vermit: According to http://al20102007.narod.ru/it/1964/... the games played at Sochi 1964 were played by Jesus-Cuba Garcia. I will report this.
