The Sants Open Tournament

📍I heard about the Catalan Circuit back in 2010. Back then, a Cuban named Lázaro Bruzón reigned over almost all of Catalonia: Badalona, ​​Montcada, Barberá, San Juan. Years before, Fidel Corrales (2008) and Omar Almeida Quintana (2009) did it.

Now, two Cubans march at full speed through these horizons, Dylan Berdayes and Ernesto Javier Fernandez. In addition to Chanel Martínez, a 20-year-old, one of the main chess players in her category in the Antillean country.

📸The images are from the Sants Open Tournament, based in a neighborhood known for its station, traditional festivals and enthusiastic people from the center of Barcelona.

Dylan accumulates 3 of 3, and Ernestico, 2.5 in the same number of rounds.

❤️The atmosphere of the place is impressive:

-a silence that breaks the usual hubbub of Sants,

-players of various nationalities, especially from India, who have achieved incredible potential in the 64-square universe. Those who know that you have to be very careful with an Indian player without Elo, or with little, say. This is because the number does not really reflect their strength on the board, due to the level in India, where they lose a lot and come to Europe to recover 😅.

-Large audience in the stands watching the games on the projector. No one moves, parents analyzing the plays with their children, others adjust their caps to take a good look.

🗓 The tournament runs until the 28th of this month, but the circuit continues towards Sabadell. Successes for Dylan, Ernestico and Chanel.

Great sporting results were achieved by the Cuban chess teams in the World Olympiad, held in Chennai, India, with the participation of some 190 nations.

Cuba topped Latin America by finishing 19th in both genders and was second only to powerhouse USA in the Americas.

The female team won 7 matches, drew one and lost 3, while the men won 6 matches, drew 3 and lost only 2.

By countries, Uzbekistan was the Champion in the absolute tournament while Ukraine was crowned in the women's section.

Regardless of several absences of players who no longer represent the Cuban Federation, the country has shown a high level of science and continues to be a continental power. !! Congratulations!!
