ARENA GRANDMASTER (AGM) and Fide Master (FM) elect Robert Suelo Jr. lived up to expectations as he ruled the March edition of Asean Chess Academy (ACA) 2019 Open Rapid Chess Tournament held last Sunday (March 17, 2019) at the Bukit Timah Shopping Centre in Singapore.
The 1996 Philippine Junior Champion Suelo finished with perfect six wins in six outings.
Suelo, an active member of International Churches of Christ (ICOC) in Singapore brought home the title plus the three nights stay at Mandalay Hotel in Myanmar.
