  Penguincw: Who was the winner? I know Nakamura scored 8/11 (72.8% score).

  Tabanus: Me neither.
Feb-20-22  whiteshark: "<GM Alexander Goldin (USA) and GM Giovanni Vescovi (Brazil) shared joint 1st with 8½-2½>

while Nakamura placed joint 2nd with five players: GM Ivan Morovic (Chile), GM Alexander Onischuk (USA), IM Pascal Carbonneau (Canada), GM Lázaro Bruzón (Cuba) and GM Yuri Shulman (USA). All scored 8-3 and will qualify to compete in the 2004 FIDE World Chess Championship."

Feb-20-22  whiteshark: <Panamerican Continental Championships>

The Panamerican Continental Championships took place in 16th-30th August 2003 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The 11 round Swiss has an $11,000 first prize.

The 7 who qualified for the next FIDE Championships were Lazaro Bruzon, Alexander Goldin, Ivan Morovic Fernandez, Hikaru Nakamura, Alexander Onischuk, Yuri Shulman and Giovanni Vescovi (Charbonneau, Gulko, Kaidanov and Shabalov were already qualified).

<Alexander Goldin and Giovanni Vescovi won with 8.5/11.> Julio Granda Zuniga didn't play the last round and finished on a disappointing 5.5/11.


Feb-20-22  whiteshark: Here are the missing Goldin games from the 1st/last round:

rd 1 (forfeit win vs Molina)

rd 11 (11 move GM draw vs Charbonneau)
