Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everybody,

This is chess news from Cuba where players are going from strength to strength in our wonderful sport. Cuban grandmasters (GMs) Yuniesky Quesada and Fidel Corrales as well as International Master (IM) Isam Ortiz have qualified for the upcoming World Cup of Chess after their participation in the Continental Championship of the Americas that concluded on Sunday in Toluca, Mexico. . 
Quesada, Corrales and Ortiz thus joined Bruzon and GM Leinier Dominguez, who also secured a berth in the world competition during a regional qualifying tournament held last month in Santiago de los Caballeros, the Dominican Republic. Bruzon won the contest in Toluca with 7.5 units out of nine possible.
The World Cup of Chess is scheduled for Khanty Mansiysk, Russia, from August 26 to September 21 later this year.

Here is our earlier post about the Cuban grandmasters. Stay tuned for more updates.
