Fide Master Jose Efren Bagamasbad, Grandmaster John Paul Gomez and Vince Angelo Medina came through with stirring victories as the Laguna Heroes team crushed Camarines Soaring Eagles, 12.5-8.5, in the All Filipino Conference Professional Chess Association of the Philippines (PCAP) tournament on Saturday, February 27, 2021 at the lichess online platform.

NM Bagamasbad displayed a persistent attack to beat National Master Carlo Lorena in 72 moves of Dutch defense on Board 4, GM Gomez trounced Mark Daluz in 34 moves of a French defense on Board 5 while Medina nipped Virgen Gil Ruaya in 57 moves of Trompovsky Opening on Board 6 that ensured the win for the Heroes in the rapid format, 9-5.

Two-time Asian Junior champion GM Rogelio "Banjo" Barcenilla, Fide Master Austin Jacob Literatus and Kimuel Aaron Lorenzo took care of the other boards.

The Arizona, US based Barcenilla halved the point with New York, US based GM Mark Paragua in 29 moves of Ruy Lopez Opening on Board 1, Literarus settled for a truce with Ellan Asuela in 40 moves of Reti Opening on Board 2 while Lorenzo split the point with NM Ronald Llavanes in 44 moves of King's Pawn Opening on Board 7.

Virgenie Ruaya won by default against WNM Jean Karen Enriquez on Board 3 for Bicol's full point in the rapid competition.
The blitz were even tighter, ending in 3.5-3.5 tie, in favor of Laguna.

GM Gomez and Medina kept the game close with victories over Daluz and Virgen Gil Ruaya while GM Barcenilla, FM Literatus and Lorenzo drew with GM Paragua, Asuela and NM Llavanes, in that order.

Virgenie Ruaya won by default against WNM Enriquez while NM Lorena toppled FM Bagamasbad for the twin wins for the Bicolanos in the blitz portion.

"I really appreciate the determination of the Laguna Heroes Team. Since WNM Jean Karen Enriquez failed to play due to asthma against Camarines, it propelled the the team to play harder," said Philippine Executive Chess Association (PECA) president Dr. Alfredo "Fred" Paez, one of the four co-team owner of the Laguna Heroes that include Engineer Benjamin Dy, Engineer Jonathan Mamaril and Mr. David Nithyananthan.

In their first match of the day, the Laguna Heroes backed up by Greatech Philippines, Inc., SDC Global Choice and Jolly Smile Dental Clinic face the Zamboanga Sultans.

With both teams tied at 10.5 points apiece after the results of blitz and rapid play, forced an armageddon play off.

Camarines, on the other hand remains at 19-4 in the Southern Division, the same output of Iloilo Kisela Knights.
