Corrales Jimenez, Leon Hoyos & Gonzalez Garcia

0 | Chess Event Coverage
Corrales Jimenez, Leon Hoyos and Gonzalez Garcia, that sounds nice. These double names, common in Spanish speaking countries, stand for the three winners of the Mexican Open Championships 2007. Well, the real winner was Corrales Jimenez, on tiebreak. The big favourite was Lazaro Bruzon but he finished only at the 7th place in this nine round Swiss that was played last week. The tournament organizers have sent us photos - something that now occurs quite often. More and more tournament organizers know where to ChessVibes and send us material; something we're very happy with of course.

Last week more than 1200 chess players participated in different categories (women, seniors, pupils in different age groups, etc.) in Aguascalientes. The total prize fund was 41,500 euros.
