MANILA---National Master (NM) Oshrie Jhames Reyes of Santa Rita, Pampanga pocketed the top honors in the National Youth and Schools Chess Championships Under-11 Open Grand Finals held at the Dapitan City Cultural Complex in Zamboanga del Norte on Wednesday.
The 11-year-old Reyes, a Grade 6 pupil of Santa Rita College, Santa Rita, Pampanga under the guidance of sportsman/businessman Jake Carlos, School Principal Eugene Lansang and Class Adviser Marites Reyes collected 9.5 points in eleven outings.
Reyes scored victories over Ran Zeth Marco Magallanes in the first round, Christian Tolosa in the second round, Ronell Jose Co in the third round, Sebastian Marbas in the fourth round, Nil Jeschel Nahbi Gamba in the fifth round, Jaden Cedric Abesamis in the seventh round, Jan Reo Serenuela in the eight round, Pat Ferdolf Macabulos in the ninth round and Jan Calvin Abesamis in the tenth round.
He split the point with Mar Aviel Carredo in the eleventh and final round.
His setback came at the hands of Aaron Aton in the sixth round.
With his latest feat, Reyes pocketed the top prize of P5,000 plus trophy in this eight-day event sponsored by Dapitan City Mayor Seth Frederick “Bullet” Jalosjos.
“Our hope in the NCFP is to produce future national team players and champions,” said national coach/ tournament director Grandmaster Jayson O. Gonzales, who is also the chief executive officer of the National Chess Federation of the Philippines under the leadership of it's chairman/president Rep. Prospero "Butch" Arreza Pichay Jr.
It shall be recalled that Reyes also won the National Age Group Chess Championships Under-12 Grandfinals last July 24, 2022 at the Robinsons Place Malolos, Bulacan.
Reyes is setting his eyes for elusive Fide Master (FM) title when he competes in the 6th Eastern Asia (ASEAN) Youth Chess Championship to be held on November 4 to 13, 2022 in Bangkok, Thailand.-Marlon Bernardino-
