The penultimate 9th round of the Capablanca Memorial has finished in Havana. In general, the key game of the round Nepomniachtchi - Ivanchuk went with Russian's small advantage, who applied a novelty in a well known variation of the English opening. However, Nepomniachtchi blundered a pawn on move 47 by moving his king on f2, instead he had to check Black king, which would give him nominal chances to fight for the victory. The rook endgame was theoretically drawn, so Ivanchuk gave up trying to prove unprovable.

Other games of the round have also finished in draws, actually in the encounter of Cuban players Quesada - Dominguez there wasn't made any new move - a theoretical draw in one of Sicilian defence variations.
