The San Roque, Marikina City bet Laylo put on a strong start and a stronger finish to run away with the Open crown with perfect 7 points to go home with the top prize of P20,000 plus the champonship trophy.

"I didn't look to defend my title, just to play my best," said, Laylo, a member of the multi-titled Philippine Army chess team. "I knew that this was a tough tournament with all the players. I just tried to play my best and now I am really happy," added Laylo, part of the coaching staff of the Ateneo de Manila University chess team.

Allan Cantonjos , playing under the baton of the Philippine Airforce Chess Team took solo second place with 6.5 points to receive P10,000 and a trophy.

Sharing third to sixth places were International Master Richelieu Salcedo III, Apollo Agapay, Jonathan Jota, National Master Alcon John Datu who got 6 points each.

In the Executive division, National Master lawyer Bob Jones Liwagon of Kidapawan City, rank of Captain and one of the top players of the multi-titled Philippine Army chess team under the baton of Army Judge Advocate (AJA) Colonel Maria Victoria Girao, split the point with Stephen Manzanero to scored 6 points and create a two-way tie for first place with engineer Arjoe Loanzon, who brought down Narquingel Reyes.

Loanzon took the title via superior tie break points against Liwagon, but the duo split the combined prize of 15,000 for their efforts.

Three players-Dr. Jenny Mayor, Manzanero and National Master Allan Sasot-finished with 5.5 points.

Category winners were National Master Judge Rosendo Bandal Jr. (most senior award) National Master Efren Bagamasbad (top senior crown) amd Drigo Teves (top unrated).
