Report by Chessdom.com

The XXXII International Open Vicente Bonil took place 29-30 November in Almeria, Spain. It was an 8 round Swiss rapid tournament with strong international participation. The list of top seeded players was headed by GM Vadim Milov (2681), followed by GM Alexey Dreev (2670), GM Oleg Korneev (2623), GM Hamdouchi (2598), GM Cristian Bauer (2592), GM and a total of 19 GMs and 26 titled players.

The competition started well for the Russian Alexey Dreev, who recently won Casino de Barcelona. He managed to take down two local players in the first rounds and then the solid Romanian GM Mihai Suba. A draw with IM Ibarra Jerez and victories against GM Bauer, IM Granero Roca, and IM Dolezal left GM Dreev with 6,5/7 one round before the end.

However, Dreev was stunned in the last round by the underperforming until that moment GM Milov, and ironically was overtaken by GM Suba, whose only loss was against GM Dreev.

For his victory GM Suba received 3,000 eur and a trophy. In total 10,000 eur were distributed among the top players.
