The 47th Capablanca Memorial takes took in Havana, Cuba 4th-14th May 2012. The Elite Group saw the return of 5 time winner (2005-7, 2010-11) and defending champion Vassily Ivanchuk who hadn't played since February, one of his longest breaks in recent years. Whilst Ivanchuk wasn't at his imperious best he still earned a sixth title finishing with 6.5/10 a point clear of Ian Nepomniachtchi and Leinier Dominguez Perez.

Ivanchuk leads Capablanca Memorial at the half way stage (5.2)

Vassily Ivanchuk leads the 47th Capablanca Memorial with 3.5/5 going into the rest day. Ivanchuk completely outplayed Viktor Laznicka in a complex Nimzo Indian. Vladimir Potkin beat Yuniesky Quesada Perez with a conversion to a winning King and Pawn ending that proved deceptive for his opponent. Ian Nepomniachtchi's disappointing play continues with a dull draw against Leinier Dominguez Perez.
