RP Chessers Win in Round 2

Philippine Men's chess team scored a victory against Moldova, a higher-ranked team on the seeded on the 23rd rank compared to RP's 35th. GM's Wesley So, Oliver Barbosa and Mark Paragua held their ground on boards 1, 2 and 3 respectively. International Master Oliver Makiling scored the key victory on board 4 against a fellow IM.

RP's Women's chess team lost their match against the 16th seed Slovenians with a score of 1.5-2.5. Although we lost this one, first-time Olympiad player Janelle Mae Frayna won over a higher-rated opponent on board three.

For the next round, Philippine Men's team will be up against Kazakhstan and our Women's team will be playing against Turkmenistan.

Congratulations and I hope you guys keep the momentum going!
