  ketchuplover: 4/4 at Gibraltar so far
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Congrats to Renier Vazquez Igarza for being one of only 4 players remaining perfect at Tradewise Gibraltar (2015) through 4 rounds. Out of the 4 that are perfect (Nakamura, Wei Yi, Adhiban and him), he's the lowest rated. This performance has gained him a sweet 11.9 rating points.

Those rating points should increase, but he now has white against the red hot Wei Yi, whose probably an undefeated +25 in his last 40 games or something like that. :)
