We've already reported on the World Championship, and the U.S. Championship (both versions) had a rest day. So that left two major events to report: the 47th Capablanca Memorial, which finished today (now yesterday) and Sigeman & Co.
Vassily Ivanchuk had a half point lead over Ian Nepomniachtchi in the Capablanca Memorial, and drew with White against Viktor Laznicka in 11 rounds. He practically dared Nepomniachtchi to try to catch him, but while he may have tried, he didn't succeed. Leinier Dominguez defeated him and caught him in second place. Ivanchuk finished with 6.5/10 while Nepomniachtchi and Dominguez had 5.5 points apiece. In minus territory, Vladimir Potkin wound up with 4.5 while Yuniesky Quesada and Laznicka totaled 4 points.
While in Havana the standings finished more or less according to ratings, the story's a bit different in Malmo, Sweden, where the Sigeman & Co. tournament has finished five rounds of seven. Top seed Fabiano Caruana won his first two games and, three draws later, remains in first. But he has been caught by Nils Grandelius, who is the lowest-rated player in the tournament. Caruana drew a crazy Gruenfeld against Li Chao, while Grandelius won with White against Jonny Hector in a Slav. The leaders have 3.5 points, good for a half point edge over Li Chao and Peter Leko and a full point advantage over Anish Giri.
