Current Philippine under 12 champ Paulo Bersamina re-established his status as one of the best junior player in the country by winning the 2010 Shell National Juniors Chess Championship at the Gaisano Grand Citimall in Davao City on Monday. Adding to the victory, the 12 year old Bersamina, a product of Meralco Chess Club also became the youngest junior champ in the history of Philippine chess.
I always have a good personal relationship with Paulo and his very supportive parents and I'm happy for them. Again, congratulation to the Bersamina!
