Share via Email Chess: Sam Shankland surprise US champion ahead of Fabiano Caruana Share on Messenger Read more Share on LinkedIn Share on Twittercenter_img Leonard Barden on chess There are some iconic images from those early Havana events. Guevara strolling around the grandmaster boards at the Habana Libre hotel, revolver in holster; Fidel Castro taking on the then world champion Tigran Petrosian in a mammoth outdoor simul which ended after half an hour when a downpour forced everyone to run for cover; Bobby Fischer playing the 1965 Capablanca via teletype from New York when the state department refused to allow him to travel; Borislav Ivkov’s horrific 1965 blunder allowing mate in two when on the brink of first prize; players at the airport greeted on Cuban soil by free glasses of rum; Fischer and Boris Spassky, all smiles, analysing their draw at the Olympiad where the USSR won gold and USA silver.After Guevara’s death and with Cuba’s economic stresses the tournament went into decline. The elite stayed away, and the venue was often moved to provincial cities. Tony Miles won it four times for England, Mark Hebden once. Americans hardly ever took part but this year there has been a change following the former president Barack Obama’s moves to ease travel restrictions.Sam Shankland is the top seed – an inspired invitation by the Cubans made before his US championship victory at St Louis ahead of the elite trio of Fabiano Caruana, Wesley So and Hikaru Nakamura. The event has also returned from the resort town of Varadero, which hosted it in 2016 and 2017, to its original home at the Tryp Habana Libre.The opposition is weakened by the absence of Leinier Domínguez, the best Cuban player since Capablanca, who is reported to be seeking US citizenship. Shankland’s main rival has proved to be the Russian veteran Alexey Dreev, who kept pace with him for the first five rounds before the American went half a point ahead in round six. The final two rounds on Friday and Saturday can be viewed live and free with move-by-move commentary on chess24.com, starting at 8pm.Below, Shankland soon took the initiative, but his Cuban opponent stayed in the game until he went passive with 22…Qb7 when Rab8! 23 Qxc5 Qxc5 24 Rxc5 Bb6 with Rfc8, giving up a pawn for activity, was best. His next turn Bxf3? (h6! 24 Nd6 Qe7) compounded the error as the US champion swiftly established a game-winning passed b pawn. Share on WhatsApp Chess Share on Pinterest Cuba’s annual Capablanca Memorial, which ends on Saturday, has been staged annually with a few small breaks since 1962, and is now in its 53rd year of an evocative history.Ostensibly it honours José Raúl Capablanca, the world champion from 1921-27 and one of the greatest natural players of all time, but in reality it is also a tribute to Che Guevara, who away from revolutions was a keen chess fan and provided state funds for the first few lavish events in the series as well as for the 1966 Havana Olympiad, probably the best organised of all world team contests.

Rupeni Caucaunibuca try against France

first_imgWednesday Aug 23, 2006 Rupeni Caucaunibuca try against France Anyone who’s ever seen Rupeni Caucaunibuca play will know that on form, and when fit, he’s probably the most explosive winger we’ve seen in a long time.He was with Auckland a cpl of years back in the Super 12. Since then, he’s wandered around clubs in France and has been a regular no shower at important matches.He’s done it once again. The Fijian wingers future at the club is in doubt, with club officials seeking clarification regarding his commitment to the club.Anyone who has more clips of this guy plz let me know. Update: As Jeff has so kindly & politely pointed out in the comments section, Caucaunibuca has been playing in France for Agen and doing pretty well apparently. Still would love to see him in the Super 14.
