The 3rd ITT Jahv McGregor open chess tournament was held from 11th to 16th December at the Centro Comercial Bulevar Niza in Bogota, Colombia.
The tournament was played over nine rounds of Swiss pairings. 386 players from 14 countries competed, including 9 Grandmasters and 13 International Masters.
Top seed GM Lazaro Bruzon Batista from Cuba defended the last year’s trophy and signed another victory in the prestigious event by concluding the race with 8,0/9 points.
Peruvian Grandmaster Emilio Cordova is clear second half a point behind the winner.
Bruzon appears to be in excellent shape as he also won the 2nd Copa AES in Dominican Republic a couple of days before the ITT Jahv McGregor.
The U7 event had 21 players. Puerta Rendon Josue is the winner with perfect 6/6 score.
The U10 group had 36 players. Joseph Jimenez is clear first with 6/6 points.
