Lipa City, Batangas---Team Seirin topped the open division of the JCI Senate Lipa Open Rapid chess team tournament at the Lipa City Convention Center on Monday, June 17, 2024, here.

The country's newest FIDE Master Ivan Travis Cu anchored the Team Seirin' campaign together with Tyrhone James Tabernilla and Zeus Alexis Paglinawan.

International Master Jan Emmanuel Garcia is coach of the team.
Team Seirin finished with seven points based on the match point-style scoring system being used by the organizing JCI Senate Lipa to rule the one-day rapid chess meet, being held in celebration of Lipa City Foundation Day.

Team Seirin received P50,000, trophy and medals for their efforts in this event backed up by Mayor Eric Africa, former Vice-Mayor Kuya Boy Manguerra and Philippine Society of Mechanical Engineers - PSME past president Engr. Roger Reyes.

"Truly a team effort," said the 15-year-old Cu, a grade 10 student of Xavier School in San Juan City who is fresh from second-place finish last month in Hanoi IM (International Master) chess tournament in Vietnam, where he should earn the FIDE Master title.
