MANILA---Grandmaster (GM) Rogelio "Joey" Antonio Jr. of the Philippines (Elo 2397), the 13-time National Open Champion, lost a crucial battle against GM Darcy Lima of Brazil (Elo 2415) in the sixth round of the 30th FIDE World Senior Individual Chess Championship held at the Hotel Cenacolo in Assisi, Umbria, Italy on Sunday.

Antonio, a long-time vanguard of Philippine Chess, was using the disadvantageous black pieces while playing against Lima. The game ended after 45 moves of Bogo Indian Defense.

The 60-year-old Lima, meanwhile, shared the leadership board in the Open 50+ class tournament with a total of 5.5 points, the same output of GM Frank Holzke of Germany (Elo 2476), who brought down Novik after 53 moves of Gruenfeld Defense.

GM Ivan Morovic Fernandez of Chile and GM Milos Pavlovic of Serbia toppled their respective rivals to climb at third to fourth places with 5.0 points apiece.

International Master Angelo Abundo Young (Elo 2309) defeated Ulises Decozar (Elo 2102) of the United States to score 3.5 points and create a twenty seven-way tie for 36th places together with seventh round opponent FM Milan Kolesar of Slovakia (Elo 2136).

In the Open 65+ class, International Master elect and Fide Master Jose Efren Bagamasbad (Elo 2051) beat Eero Patola (Elo 1830) of Finland to raise his total 3.0 points. The 66-year-old Bagamasbad was tied at 84th to 112th places. He will be meeting with Olav Thoresen of Norway (Elo 1874) in the next round.

The triumvirate would like to thank NCFP Chairman/President Rep. Prospero "Butch" Arreza Pichay Jr. and NCFP CEO GM Jayson O. Gonzales for supporting their Europe chess campaign as well to POC President Mayor Abraham "Bambol" Tolentino Jr. for helping to secure their schengen visa on time.
