Quick update by Adolivio from Italy
After 8 rounds, GM Caruana succeeded in catching the leaders at the 70th Italian Championship, held in Siena, the nice and historical town of Tuscany.
Today Caruana won while GM Garcia-Palermo and IM Denis Rombaldoni (both with black) made draw, so these three players now are leading with 6 points. Fourth with 5 points is IM D’Amore.
The 12 players, round robin Italian Championship will end on Dec 4th.
