ChessBase Report
‘For the first time since 2010 the Capablanca Memorial Elite group did not include GM Vassily Ivanchuk among its participants. In his six trips to Havana, the Ukrainian has only lost two games and only once was his ultimate triumph in danger.

His unfortunate absence led to a variety of predictions and more than a few hoped GM Leinier Dominguez would win his third title in this event. As it was, the best chess player in Latin America, with 2723 Elo, finished in third place.

In the Elite there were several unexpected results. In his first trip to Havana, the Hungarian Zoltan Almasi (2689) left a very good impression, and dominated the group with 6.5/10, thanks to four wins, five draws and a lone setback.

The veteran player, aged 37, added fifteen Elo points and will now return to the ever expanding list of players rated over 2700. (more)’
