PCAP Open Conference impresibong sinugdanan alang sa toledo Trojans

CEBU, Philippines — Ang Toledo City Trojans gibati og tumang garbo ug kalipay sa impresibo nilang sinugdanan sa Open Conference sa 2022 Professional Chess Association of the Philippines (PCAP) season nga misikad pinaagi sa tulo ka adlaw nga over-the-board games niadtong Septiembre 23-25 didto sa Estancia Mall sa Pasig City.

Mao kadto ang labing unang in-person nga mga duwa sa labing unang propesyonal nga liga sa chess sa nasud nga na-establisar taliwala sa pagulbo sa pandemiya duha ka tuig na ang milaya.

"The fact that the team needed to travel was a great challenge, but something worth risking for. Glory to God, help came at the perfect moment.

We are very grateful to all our benefactors especially to Pasig LGU for the free accommodation," matud pa ni Trojans co-team owner Atty. Jeah Jean Gacang.

"To be in the same place with grandmasters, international masters, and other best chess players in the country was overwhelming," dugang pa ni Gacang.

Ang nakanindot kay ang Trojans mihimo dayon og impresyon sa torneyo pinaagi sa pagdaog og upat sa nag-una nilang lima ka mga duwa.

Gipangmakmak sa Trojans ang Cagayan de Oro-Misamis Oriental Chess Asscociation (CMOCA)-RCM Higalas, Cebu Machers, ug PCL Pagadian Costbusters.

Gibuntog sila sa mainit nilang karibal nga Iloilo Kisela Knights apan nakabawi sab dayon pinaagi sa pagpakaging sa Negros Kingsmen.

"It's a good sign. Toledo's players are in good shape and show resilience in this conference," dason pa ni  Gacang.

Mas nilig-on tungod sa presensiya ni Woman National Master Ella Grace Moulic sa Davao, nga kanhi top player sa La Salle, ang ubang mga sakop sa Toledo Trojans ubos sa pagtimon ni team captain Bonn Rainauld Tibod naglangkob nilang IM Rico Mascariñas, NM Merben Roque, NM Rommel Ganzon ug igsoon niining si Ronald, Christopher Tubalado, Allan Pason, ug Glen Pardillo

"We have a newly acquired lady player in WNM Ella Grace Moulic, she's our ace ," padayag pa ni Tibod. "We've always reached the semis but we hope to make it all the way to the finals this time. Our team is very hungry for the title."
