Concio on track for Top 3

Joey Villar - The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines —  Filipino International Master Michael Concio Jr. downed FIDE Master Daniyal Sapenov of Kazakhstan in the eighth and penultimate round yesterday for a crack at a top three finish in the Asian Juniors Chess Championships at the Knights Templar Hotel in Tagaytay City.

Concio outplayed Sapenov in the opening where the reigning Asian juniors rapid king sacrificed a pawn to end up snatching two pawns and whipping up a vicious queenside attack that ended with an unstoppable passed pawn.
