Living up to his billing, the San Juan City-based Cu scored perfect 7.0 points to rule the semifinals of the Under 13 Open National Youth & Schools Chess Championship held last Thursday and Friday, June 30 and July 1, 2022.

The 7-round Swiss tournament was played on Tornelo with a time control of 15 minutes and 10 seconds increment.

The 13-year-old Cu, a Grade 8 pupil of Xavier School, finished 1.5 points ahead of National Master Christian Gian Karlo Arca of Panabo City, Davao del Norte in the 34-man field composed of winners of the leg qualifiers and the country's best rapid young chess players.

Cu, who also dominated the recently concluded National Age Group Chess Championship Semifinals where he played in the U-14 open category last May 28 to 29, 2022.

"NM Ivan Travis Cu secured the gold with 7 wins against his peers. The 7 rounds Swiss tournament was played on Tornelo with a time control of 15 minutes and 10 seconds increment." said father/coach Teddy Cu.

"This win is a strong boost to NM Ivan and represents his second semifinal championship crown after finishing first in the recently concluded National Age Group Chess Championship Semifinals where he played in the U-14 open category last May 28 to 29, 2022." he added.
