MANILA, Philippines — The Philippines saw its fairy tale run end as it fell to old nemesis Indonesia, 0-2, and bowed out in the women’s division of the Asian Nations Online Chess Cup yesterday.

The Filipinas, who routed the Sri Lankans, 2-0, in the quarterfinals the day before, failed anew to unlock the mystery of the Indonesians, who beat the former with a pair of 2.5-1.5 wins in their two-match semis.

The Indonesians set up an interesting title showdown with the top-seeded Indians, who destroyed the Mongolians, 3.5-.5 and 4-0, while sending the Filipinas packing.
