Lucky loser advances-A A +A
Friday, August 15, 2014
NATIONAL Master Arnold Cadiz won the August Monthly Qualifying tournament of the Cebu Executives and Professionals Chess Association (Cepca) after scoring 4.5 points in the five-round Swiss System tournament at the Handuraw Pizza in Gorordo Ave., last Sunday.
However, since Cadiz claimed his seat last month for the finals, the August slot for the December event went to club president Jerry Maratas, who finished fourth.
Cadiz was followed by Tony Cabibil and Peterson Sia, who scored 4.0 points each. The two also qualified to December finals, paving the way for Maratas’ entry. RCM
