WORLD CUP bound GM Wesley Barbasa So made the country proud anew when he finished in a tie for first to third places in the just concluded 19th annual Sigeman chess championship Monday night at the Classic Hipp Theather, Central Malmo in Malmo, Sweden.

The 17-year-old Bacoor, Cavite whiz kid defeated GM Jonny Hector of Sweden using the disadvantageous black pieces after 31 moves of French defense according to International Master Rolando Nolte who watch the game thru live internet to finish with 3 points on two wins, two draws and one loss in the prestigious six-player, round-robin tournament. Also with 3 points are GM Anish Giri of the Netherlands and GM Hans Tikkanen of Sweden who agreed a draw after 45 moves of Gruenfeld defense.

According to International Arbiter/ National Master Erwin Carag, the Filipino champion, however, finished only second in the Buchholz tiebreak which topped by Giri who successfully defended his title. GM Alexei Shirov of Spain, meantime drew with GM Nils Grandelius of Sweden after 24 moves of Slav defense to finish with 2.5 points for solo third place.

Grandelius, who inflicted the only loss of Wesley in Sunday's fourth round, settled over-all fifth with 2 points, half-a-point ahead over countryman Hector who remains at 1.5 points.

National Chess Federation of the Philippines (NCFP) chairman/president Prospero "Butch" Pichay Jr. congratulated Wesley for his respectable showing in the Sweden chess meet.

According to Pichay, Wesley's next tournament is another round-robin tournament in India.
