DAVAO CITY – International Master Oliver Dimakiling ruled the 2nd JSupt. Ericley Louise D. Lazaro Warden’s Open Rapid Chess tournament last April 13 at the SM City Davao in Ecoland Drive.
The 43-year-old Dimakiling beat NM Henry Roger Lopez, a member of the national Paralympics chess team, in the final 7th round for a total of 6 ½ points.

He earned P30,000 and a trophy.

Dimakiling, who was ranked no. 1, slowly played in the first round with a draw against no. 42 rank Yreil Josh Hernani of Davao.

He then beat 62nd rank Elragildino Repato and AFM Adrei Ainsley Dolorosa, a silver medalist in the recent DAVRAA Meet, to score 2 ½.

Dimakiling’s next victim was Julius Gonzaga of Davao Occidental followed by NM John Cyrus Borce of Zamboanga City for a score of 4 1/2.

In Round 6, Dimakiling outplayed NM Aglipay Oberio before crushing Lopez.

Oberio, however, bounced back by trouncing Jayson Salubre of Panabo City while NM Macacuna Macala of Davao defeated DAVRAA Secondary gold medalist Mhyl Crese Wayne Patrimonio of Digos City in the final round.

Both Oberio and Macala finished with six points. But Macala got the better quotient and earned second place, P15,000 and a trophy.

Oberio settled for third and got P10,000 plus a trophy.
Tied with 5 ½ points are FM Austin Jacod Literatus, Lopez, NM Joey Albert Florendo and John Christian Lesaca of Davao.

Meanwhile, female chess player Aliyah Rae Lumangtad of Tagum City dominated the 19 Under by scoring a perfect 7.0 points.

Lumangtad, who recently won the DAVRAA Secondary girl’s gold medal, beat Ace Joshua Caralde of Cagayan de Oro in the final round. She received P2,000 and a trophy.

Davao’s Hannah Segara, a double gold medalist in DAVRAA elementary girl’s, finished second after crushing Carl Jasphyr Lloyd Fiel of Digos with 6.0 points.
