Two setbacks and a draw were the balance of the Cuban participation in the seventh date of the United States Chess Championship, which today will experience a new day at its usual headquarters at the Saint Louis Chess Club.
The only insular who should not have bowed his king was Leinier Dominguez (ELO of 2760), who divided the point into 51 sets of a Ruy López against Daniel Naroditsky (2623).
Instead, Lazaro Bruzon (2645) also wore white chess pieces but succumbed to Samuel Sevian (2654) in just 22 moves of a Rey’s Indian Attack after an incomprehensible succession of errors that led to his first loss in the tournament.
Finally, the young lady Thalia Cervantes (2175) yielded versus Anna Sharevich (2276), who declined the gambit proposed by the Antillean and beat her in 40 moves.
Now Leinier adds four stripes and remains half a point from the top shared by three players, while Bruzón has three units and shares the positions of seventh to tenth. Cervantes, meanwhile, exhibits three points and an anchor from eight to ten in the classification of twelve chess players.
In today’s round, Leinier and Bruzón will lead Black against Sevian and Ray Robson (2669), respectively, while the girl will lead White against Tatev Abrahamyan (2344).
