Jardin del Roca tops chessfest

THE Jardin del Roca composed of Lawyers Jong Guevarra Jr., Jimmy Dano and Alfred Moulic clinched the 5th Atty. Jong Guevarra Cup Tatluhan Chess Team Tourney title at the newly-constructed Toril Gym over the weekend.

Jardin del Roca earned a total of 10 match points in the six-round Swiss System Format chessfest to annex the P15,000 and the championship trophy of the event supported by Davao City Third District Representative Alberto Ungab.

Guevarra, who topped board three, paced Jardin del Roca with a perfect six points.

They bested Caissa's Father, Mom's Lechon, Larry Dumadag and Team Mom, who trailed behind. They received P10,000, P7,000, P5,000 and P3,000, respectively.

Guevarra, on his Facebook post, said it was totally unexpected winning the title against 19 other teams from Mindanao.

"Hanggang ngayon parang hindi pa ako makapaniwala (I still can’t believe it until now). It only proves one thing, may asim pa rin ang tira ko kahit paminsan-minsan (My attacks are still good sometimes)," Guverra posted.

Meanwhile, Anthony Mosqueda of Caissa's Father topped board one with perfect six points while Jake Gonzales topped board two.
