So Much Talent

12-years young pinoy FM Wesley So is demonstrating his poweful potential by leading his Tagaytay B team to victory over Tabilog Cargo Services in the Prospero "Butch’’ Pichay Chess Challenge tournament. So's team outpointed their opponent's by 2.5 - 1.5 points.

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."
