Cori's nice game at the Ruy Lopez Chess Tournament

Hello Everybody!

I recently played at one of the seven wonders of the world: The Machu Picchu in Peru. I played against World Champion Under-16 Deysi Cori in possibly one of the most publicized matches of this year (watch the YouTube video) as part of a chess tourism promotional program. The event was in May.

And, the talented Cori has, right after that event, just finished playing in the 4th Ruy Lopez Tournament in Villafranca, Spain.

Here is a nice game by her from the tournament against Perez Candelario. You can play it in our pgnplayer or see it in flash below.
