Severino draws with Yifan
to finish 15th in Bangkok

Negrense Fide Master Sander Severino held his ground against women’s world champion Grand Master Huo Yifan to get away with a draw and finish in the top 15 of the 12th Bangkok Chess Club Open Tournament in Thailand.

His overall standing increased the international ELo rating 24 points and this is an excellent result, Negrense chess patron Tony Ivan Aguirre said.

Determined to give powerhouse National Capital Region a close contest for the overall championship this year, Negros Occidental athletes, who compose majority of the delegation from Western Visayas in the 2012 Palarong Pambansa in Pangasinan, are deep in training in preparation for the competition next month.

Members of the athletics team, whose training is under the supervision of provincial sports coordinator Manuel de Oro, have started training at the Panaad and will leave for Lingayen on April 29.

The 21-member athletics team from Negros will join the regional meet champions from Iloilo and will don the colors of Western Visayas in the Lingayen Palaro.
