OLEINY LINARES won the 2019 Cuban Women’s Senior Chess Championships held in the eastern province of Holguin.
It was a very level contest as she amounted eight points from a possible 11 and finished tied with Yenisbel Miranda, but had a better tiebreaker than her teammate in the national squad.
This was the third domestic crown for Linares, who remained undefeated with five wins and six draws; while Miranda, the 2017 champion, totalled one more victory (6) and four draws, but lost once.
