It is not often that one wins a tournament with 8.5 points from 10 games, most of them against GM’s. The Peruvian youngster seemed unstoppable, against GM’s he scored an impressive 5 points from 6 games, including a last round win with Black against the Argentine star GM Diego Flores.
Some Games by Alcantara
An unfortunate loss for Flores, who mixed up his move order. Had he taken on h6 instead of on e6, then he would have won. Instead, his move lost by force.C’est la vie!
It is still a complicated game!I am surprised that Granda drew so quickly, normally he fights to the bitter end, not caring about the result.Recently, however, he has been in somewhat poor form.
