Toledo Xignex Trojans

CEBU CITY, Philippines — The Toledo Xignex Trojans split their two matches on Wednesday evening, May 8, in the ongoing Professional Chess Association of the Philippines (PCAP) All-Filipino Conference.

This was after the Trojans beat Arriba Iriga but lost to the south division’s current leader, the Camarines Soaring Eagles.

Their 1-1 (win-loss) outing last Wednesday evening put them at the No. 2 spot in the south division’s standings. They are now tied with the Davao Chess Eagles with 15-8 (win-loss) slates.

However, the Toledo Xignex Trojans earned the No. 2 spot for accumulating 296 total points, while Davao has 274.5 points.
