Round by Round Results
Tournament champion Jhun Moneda receives his prize from FCPL
President Jobannie C. Tabada, who also served as tournament arbiter
Paul Dargan - 1st runner-up
Tato Abdullah - 2nd runner-up
Richard Perez - Top Under-1900
Mel Cabangon - Top Under-1800
Kyle Cedric Dolor - Top Junior Player
Shyam - Youngest Participant
Sibt Ali vs. FM Tony Molina, who survived being a piece
down in the middlegame to score the full point against
the luckless Pakistani in the fourth round. Ali was also
completely winning in the third round against Rocky Pabalan,
but squandered a pawn and quality advantage to drop the point.
Rocky Pabalan's never-say-die attitude leads to an improbable
victory in an otherwise completely lost endgame against Sibt Ali.
The championship encounter between Paul Dargan and
Jhun Moneda, 0-1.
The tournament hall
Second-seed Paul Dargan eking out a win in time trouble
against junior player Kyle Cedric Dolor in the first round.
Jops Mangaco vs. Mohamad Shareef, 1-0
Shyam vs. new FCPL campaigner Marlon Ladao, 0-1
Marlon Ladao (right) vs. Kyle Dolor, 1-0
Kiddie player Sunil (right) vs. Macky Ingcongan, 0-1
Top-seed FM Tony Molina vs. second-seed Paul Dargan
continuing their discussion in the Albin Counter Gambit.
The game ended in a draw, as was their previous encounter
in the same line in a tournament in Abu Dhabi.
Richard Perez vs. Molina, 1/2-1/2, after Perez, with less
than a minute on his clock, failed to capitalise on his
extra rook in this endgame.
FCPL top guns Rocky Pabalan vs. Tato Abdulla, 1/2-1/2
Dargan vs. Abdulla in the second round, 1-0. Dargan
sacrificed a pawn and the knight on c3. Abdullah got greedy,
which proved fatal as he did not have time to fully develop
his kingside and bring his king to safety.
