CAUAYAN CITY---San Pablo, Isabela's newest chess sensation Robert Mania scored a crucial win over of Santa Maria, Bulacan ace Ricky Echala in the ninth and final round to claim the championship of the 10th edition of Kamatyas FIDE rated invitational rapid chess tournament dubbed as "David's Gambit" held at the FLDY Coliseum, Rizal Avenue in Cauayan City, Isabela last September 23 and 24, 2023.

After losing to International Master Joel Banawa of Alicia, Isabela in the 8th round, Mania bounced back with aplomb to down Echala in his last assignment.

That was all Mania needed to nail the title with the highest output of 8.0 points. He pocketed P30,000 for his efforts courtesy of International Master Roderick Nava and National Master David Almirol, both co-founder of the organizing Kamatyas Chess Club.

Mania, one of the top players of PCAP's Cagayan Kings also won his match against Aian Ganpher Esquivel, Rye Symon Canlas, Arnel Manguira, AFM Yosef Immanuel Morada, IM Daniel Quizon, FM Mark Jay Bacojo and Lordwin Espiritu.

"I was happy with my performance,"said Mania, a key player for DPWH Isabela.

Mc Dominique Lagula of Aritao, Nueva Vizcaya finished in second place with the same 8.0 points.

Lagula settled for the second place honors by virtue of a lower tie-breaker against eventual winner Mania.

Lagula received P10,000 for his efforts.

He beat former solo leader IM Banawa in the last round.

IM Banawa, on the other hand, remained at 7.5 points, the same score of Fide Master Mark Jay Bacojo of Dasmariñas City, Cavite, who brought down Jan Clifford Labog of Solano, Nueva Vizcaya.
IM Banawa and FM Bacojo got P7,000 and P5,000 for winding up third and fourth, respectively.

Rounding up to the top ten (10) who received P2,000 each were Espiritu (5th), Anwar Cabugatan (6th), Lionel Cerezo (7th), Sheralvin Garcia (8th), Romark Ramones (9th) and Labog (10th). -Marlon Bernardino-
