Shell grand fi­nals slated


NCR leg win­ners Marc Labog, Julius Gon­za­les and Jerome Aragones ban­ner a big 48-player field brac­ing for a bat­tle royale in the 2015 Shell Na­tional Youth Ac­tive Chess Cham­pi­onship na­tional fi­nals slated this week­end at SM Mega­mall in Man­daluy­ong City.

The best and the bright­est af­ter the three-month long, five-leg re­gional cir­cuit spon­sored by Shell for the 23rd year will try to out­wit each other in the up­com­ing grand fi­nals with so much at stake for the coun­try’s cur­rent and fu­ture chess stars.

Labog, an Adam­son Univer­sity stand­out, topped the se­niors di­vi­sion of the NCR leg and towed sec­ond placer Mc­Do­minique Lag­ula of San Beda and Na­tional Univer­sity’s An­to­nio Almodal to the na­tional fi­nals where they will slug it out for top hon­ors, and prizes.
