Dominguez to end Carlsen's winning streak

Leinier Dominguez, the first Cuban player to pass the 2700-mark on the FIDE rating list, is close to ending Magnus Carlsen's domination in super-tournaments in 2008. Carlsen is still one point behind the Cuban after they drew each other in today's game. Dominguez is rarely losing, actually his percentage of draws is pretty high, and it is unlikely that Carlsen will catch him on the first place.

Earlier this year Carlsen shared first place in all super-tournaments that he played in - Corus, Linares and FIDE GP.
