ABS CBN reports:
So waylaid veteran International Master Richard Bitoon on Board 1, while teammate Truman Hernaez downed Raymond Salcedo on Board 3.
On Board 4, Allan Macala settled for a draw against Nelson Villanueva to cushion the loss of Edmundo Gatus to FM Jesse Noel Sales on Board 2 and secure the win for Tagaytay B.
Mayor Tolentino had this to say of So, "I’m not surprised that Tagaytay “B” topped the eliminations. I have great faith in the talent of Wesley So and his teammates."
