In October 2007, Cori competed in the American Continental Championship for the first time and scored 6/9, achieving a 20-game International Master (IM) norm.
In 2008, he won the gold medal in the Panamerican U14 championship and in the open U13 section of the 4th World School Championships, and bronze in the Panamerican under 20 championship. In that year, he achieved his final IM norm in the 11th Málaga Open.
In 2009, he won the Panamerican U18 championship and the world U14 championship.
Cori achieved a 20-game Grandmaster (GM) norm in the 2009 American Continental Championship and earned the final norm in October 2009. He qualified for the GM title in January 2010, at the age of 14 years, 5 months and 15 days, when he crossed the 2500 Elo rating mark during the 3rd Jose Marca Memorial Open in Lima, that he won with a score of 7.5/9.
Cori made his debut in the national team in 2010 at the 39th Chess Olympiad playing board 3; he scored 7.5/11.
In 2011, he finished fifth in the American Continental Championship and this result enabled him to qualify for the Chess World Cup 2011, where he was eliminated in the first round by Francisco Vallejo Pons. In that year he also won the world U16 championship.
In 2012, he won bronze in the world U18 championship and played top board for his national team in the 40th Chess Olympiad.
In May 2013, Cori placed equal third (fourth on tiebreak) in the American Continental Championship and thus qualified for the Chess World Cup 2013. In July 2013, he won the 18th Balaguer Open. In the following month, he competed in the World Cup in Tromsø, Norway: after drawing the two classical games against Teimour Radjabov, Cori won the first rapid game, but lost the second one. In the third game he didn't show up in time, as Cori, due to language barrier, misunderstood the start time (6:50 instead of 6:15), and was forfeited due to "zero tolerance" rule; he drew the fourth game and therefore was eliminated from the tournament. Later that month, in August 2013, he placed second at the Open of Sants, Hostafrancs & La Bordeta in Barcelona, behind Baskaran Adhiban. In September 2013, Cori tied for 3rd–4th in the World Junior Championship. He tied for first place, placing third on countback, in the 3rd Panama Open with 7/9.

In the following month, he took part in the 41st Chess Olympiad playing on the third board for Peru; he scored 6.5/11.
In April 2015, Cori won the 6th Latin Chess Cup in Vicente Lopez, Argentina, edging out Axel Bachmann on tiebreak. In May 2015, his first place the Zonal 2.4 Championship qualified him for the Chess World Cup 2015. Later in the same month, he finished third in the 10th American Continental Championship in Montevideo. Cori decided to not participate in the World Cup in order to compete for the last time in the World Junior Championship and his spot was taken by his sister Deysi, who finished third in the Zonal 2.4 Championship.
