CEBU CITY, Philippines — The Toledo City Trojans resume their campaign in the Professional Chess Association of the Philippines (PCAP) Third Conference on Saturday evening, October 8, 2022.
The Trojans which reached the semifinals in the second conference earlier this year will face the Surigao Fianchetto Checkmates in their first match and the Camarines-Iriga Soaring Eagles in their second game.
The Trojans who currently occupy the No. 4 spot in the Southern Division standings have four wins with two losses worth 74.5 points. They are behind the Palawan Queen’s Gambit with the same win-loss record, but with higher accumulated points of 82.5.
In their most recent match, the Trojans lost to the Davao Chess Eagles, 5.5-15.5, last Wednesday.
