Asean chess age-group up

Olympiad veteran International Master Paulo Bersamina and reigning Asian Age Group champion and runner-up IM John Marvin Miciano and Daniel Quizon will spearhead the country’s bid in the premier under-20 division of the 19th ASEAN+ Age Group Chess Championship set June 19-28 at the Royal Mandaya Hotel in Davao City.

The 19-year-old Bersamina, who was part of the PH Olympiad team in Tromso, Norway in 2014 and Baku, Azerbaijan two years ago, is expected to arrive today in Davao City fresh from his failed Olympiad bid in the Grand Finals of the Olympiad qualifier dubbed “Road to Batumi” a few days back.
