BY: MARLON BERNARDINO
MANILA, PHILIPPINES---FILIPINO International Master (IM) Ricardo “Ricky” de Guzman continued his winning ways in the US shore as he emerged over-all champion in the just ended Burger Open Chess Championships at the Mechanics Institute in San Francisco, California, USA last January 9, 2010.
The Cainta, Rizal pride De Guzman, who is best to remember for winning the 1981 Asian Junior Chess Championships in Dhaka, Bangladesh who was awarded an outright IM title, finished undefeated with a total 4.5 points on four wins and a draw to Evan Meyer Sandberg in the fifth and final round in the event which attracted 38 players from Northern California.
De Guzman, who is now based in Hayward, California, earlier brought downed Tudor Muntean, Zachi Baharav, Dante Argishti and Rohan Agarwal, respectively.
