1st International Open Club Caissa Guatemala
Quick 1-Minute Summary
Another tough 9-round tournament held over 5 days! Guatemala does not organize many strong Opens, so it is not surprising that 134 players from 15 countries took advantage of this opportunity to combine chess and tourism, including 10 GM’s , 7 IM’s and 8 M’s.
The prize fund is $8k ($2.5k for first prize), time control is 90 minutes for the whole game (plus 30′).
Ranking after 8 rounds
Round 9 Pairings
The tournament started early this morning at 10 am Guatemala time and is still going on as I write this. What has been learned so far is that 3 players have tied for first, Mareco, Zaragatski and Cuena. Congrats! When more is known, I will present these results.
