Going into the final round, Jorge Cori was leading while Sandro Mareco was 1/2 point behind and Emilio Cordova was a full point behind.
In the final round, Emilio defeated IM Salinas. The final chess game was Jorge v Sandro. While only needing a draw to qualify, if Jorge wins, his Webster U teammate Emilio would qualify as well. And he did! In dramatic chess fashion, Jorge defeated Sandro!
Congratulations to both for qualifying for the next Chess World Cup!
