Results of the 8th Art Borjal Rapid Chess Tournament

The 8th Art Borjal Rapid Chess Tournament took place last Sunday, December 19, 2010 at the covered basketball court of Ramon Magsaysay Cubao High School. The crazy weather did not prevent the 83 players from joining the tournament.

WNM Jan Jodylin Fronda of De La Salle University, Charles Daniel Abuzo and Kevin Arquero tied on top with 6 points but Fronda claimed the champion's prize and Top Lady awards after the tie breaks were applied. Abuzo on second place and Top Under 14 while Arquero placed 3rd. Paul Robert Evangelista placed 4th on the over-all standings and claimed the Top Under 14 second place. Naranjo, Balingit, Corpin, Castro, Galan and Flores placed 5th to 6th respectively.

Stephen Rome Pangilinan of Bulacan claimed the Top Under 12 Award,  Marie Antoniette San Diego of Cavite won the Top Female for the top Under 12 and 2nd place for the Top Under 12 while Michelle Yaon went home with Top Under 14 award.

For my wards, Shawn and Iyas, it was enough for them to gauge their current skills and went home with 3.5 points.  Iyas won over Christian Nanola in the second round who was a finalist in the 2009 National Shell Active Chess Championship. For Shawn, it was a learning experience which he could not have gained had he not joined.

Asia's first, GM Eugene Torre gave the inspirational talk and there he emphasized the "learning experience" the players should focus on.

Congratulations to all the players and everyone who made the 8th Art Borjal Rapid Chess Tournament successful!
