Using the disadvantageous black pieces, Suelo agreed to a draw against Reyes after 20 moves of English Opening in the twenty (20) minutes time control format enroute the title.

He received 450 Singapore dollar champions' purse for his effort. Suelo got undefeated in six games of play with five wins and a draw.

Earlier, Suelo defeated Charles Heng Cho Yaw of Singapore, Lincoln Yap of Cebu, Philippines, Alexander Chan of Singapore, Jimson Bitoon of Cebu, Philippines and Richard Lean Boon Cheng of Singapore, respectively.

Other Filipino entrants were National Master (NM) and International Master (IM) candidate Edgar Reggie Olay of Davao, Philippines (4.5 points), Rolly Parondo Jr. of Iloilo, Philippines (4.0 points) and Fide Master (FM) Nelson Villanueva of Bacolod, Philippines (4.0 points) in the Filipino dominated event.
