Alabang vs Carrascal

It's a Barangay Alabang versus Carrascal (Surigao del Sur) showdown at the 2006 RP Inter-cities finals. Team Alabang's victory over Tagaytay City, last year's champions, was off the fine efforts of recent Doha Elims champs Darwin Laylo and Ronald Dableo who downed GM Rogelio Antonio and Jayson Gonzales respectively in the semis.

Carrascal, on the other hand, edged out PNP-Quezon City in the other semis thanks mainly to Carrascal's board one NM Emmanuel Senador. Senador defeated fellow national master Ruel Filipinas 1.5 - 0.5 in their individual match up.

Looks like "hard hitting" Laylo and "Diablo" Dableo are living up and proving their supremacy over the top Phil. GM's.

The way they are playing (as well as our other overseas Pinoy stars) I bet the Swiss or RR format will not matter. Our GM's will still have a hard time qualifying for the team.
