Pabalan wins anew

Rocky Pabalan picked up another championship finish after winning the FCPL September Active Chess Tournament at Reef Mall.

Pabalan, who won the July tournament and finished runner-up in August, had a perfect 6-out-of-6 slate and was a full point ahead of the field entering the final round. A short draw with Axel John Valerio in the seventh round sealed the title.

Paul Dargan of the UK settled for second place with six points, half a point behind the champion. Jumar Abo was third with five points, while Valerio was fourth also with five points. Valerio's father, Alexious, took the fifth spot with 4.5 points.
