Alonso Zapata

It was an eight round tournament. GM Zapata tied for first with Carlos Antonio Hevia Alejano, from Cuba, even though their game in the antepenultimate round, a Najdorf in which Alonso played 6 g3, ended in a win for his young opponent. GM Zapata was able to catch the IM by winning both of his his last games, including a win versus the only other GM in the field, Sergio E Barrientos of Columbia, while Hevia Alejano split the point in the last two games.
