National Master Darwin Laylo finished ahead of all competitors in RP's National Chess Open Championships held in Mandaluyong City. Half a point behind, on 10/11, was FM Oliver Dimakiling. The two players will join grandmasters Paragua, Torre and Antonio in RP's Olympiad side.
The sixth spot is yet to be decided among Wesley So, John Paul Gomez, Roderick Nava, Rolando Nolte, Mirabeau Maga and IM Petronio Roca. So is only 12-years old and it will be quite interesting to see him in the Olympiad side. All power to him!
