Cebuano IM Takes First

This is a piece of news that I've been meaning to post. Being from the island provice of Cebu, I am very glad to share this news of international master Joseph Sanchez.

Paris-based Sanchez last week finished in shared first place at the 5th International Open in Condom, France. He collected 7 points out of 9 games.

IM Sanchez was previously featured in Bobby Ang's Chess Piece at Business World with an apt title; Atakador From Cebu. His victory at Condom only proves that Sanchez is a name we can TRUST.
