Dominguez Leads Dortmund
Dominguez unforgiving against Nepo’
When Lenier Dominguez decided to jump ship and change his federation from Cuba to the US, he was forced to stop playing competitive chess for more than a year. Many felt that the lack of practice would have an effect when he started to play once more earlier this year, but Lenier has proven them wrong. He is stronger than ever.
After 3 rounds of the very strong Dortmund Sparkassen the Cuban-American finds himself in the lead with 2.5 points. Yesterday he convincingly gunned down the Russian Ian Nepomniachtchi’s Caro Kann in less than 30 moves.

Except for White’s small imprecison on move 10, an impressive display by Dominguez!
