Kibitzer's Corner
May-04-23  Atterdag: A bit peculiar to see two of my compatriots playing in this tournament (Svane/Bjerre), long way from home.
May-07-23  ultrausurper: There's been a mistake here, Carlos Albornoz Cabrera and Carlos Daniel Albornoz Cabrera are the same player, same with Luis Quesada Perez and Luis Ernesto Quesada Perez, and L Martinez Duany and Lelys Stanley Martinez Duany. Mods please fix this.
May-07-23  ultrausurper: Also, what happened in L Martinez Duany vs O Almeida Quintana, 2023? Is it incomplete or did white's cellphone ring?

  Troller: Chess-results has only 5 rounds played so I think something might be wrong with the scores of rd 6 here. The official homepage has video footage of rd 6 so it was apparently played but not reported...

  Diademas: There are some pretty strange games here from round 6. Iturrizaga Bonelli vs J B Bjerre, 2023

  Troller: Jonas Bjerre won the event with 7/9 if chess-results is to be believed:

A nice feather in the cap if one looks at prevoius winners like Smyslov, Najdorf, Larsen, Leko, Ivanchuk - although this year's field was not the strongest.
