Fidel will not be pleased. It’s to the Isla de los Pinos for them!

17 draws and yet they failed to win.
cant say more than im disappointed with the play in this tourny of my fellow countrymen, thought we’d see more from them.. irishspy, i wouldnt worry about isla de los pinos for them, but its good to see people are aware of it and what goes on there..
Good for Chuky! Hope he comes back into strong tourneys. Chess needs characters like him.
Darn it Ivanchuk, we are all rooting for you, too bad your timing is bad to shine, no Elista for you!
