The fifth round of the elite Capablanca Memorial tournament ended last night. There was a quick draw in the game of Ian Nepomniachtchi and Leinier Dominguez. Then, Vassily Ivanchuk and Vladimir Potkin slowly outplayed Victor Laznicka and Yuniesky Quesada, respectively. More details are to follow.

Vassily Ivanchuk is ahead at the end of the first stage of the double round-robin tournament. It's worth noting that this is the time in the tournament when the Ukrainian has to play three games in a row with black. It's interesting that the same happened to him recently in Reggio Emilia. Ivanchuk had to fight with black pieces three times in a row and he lost all three of the games. This time the series has started with a win.
