CEBU CITY, Philippines — The Toledo Xignex Trojans will continue their inter-division campaign in the ongoing Professional Chess Association of the Philippines (PCAP) All-Filipino Cup First Conference on Wednesday, April 17, as they take on the Rizal Batch Towers and Cagayan Kings. 

Currently, the Trojans occupy the top spot in the southern division standings. They have eight wins and two losses worth 141 points to keep the top spot.

This was contrary to the initial standings and results released by PCAP after their matches on April 13 were the Trojans said to have moved down to second place, while Camarines Soaring Eagles climbed to the top place. 

PCAP has made the necessary corrections based on the participating teams current win-loss standings.
