          PAX RIPS CM GARCIA; 
               BOTH ARE 2-2
PALAU’S first titled player Candidate Master (CM) Bernardo Garcia and 6th seed Paquito ‘Pax’ Suringa, Jr. are supposed to play their first game in the opening day of 2015 Palau National Chess Championship. But they were not able to play it and set their game at a later date. Three weeks of negotiation finally bear fruit when Garcia agreed at a date where Pax will be off duty at 6pm on a Saturday of Nov. 14 at Palau Royal Resort Dormitory 1.

                Their game started at 6:15pm with Garcia having the white pieces. He opened with his pet defense English Opening 1. c4 and the pan fare begins! Their game were witnessed by chess players and non-chess players employees of PRR.. Roberto Hernandez, Felix Oling, Elizalde Madrinan, Janel San Juan with some other employees watching TV and playing table tennis.
                At the later part of their game, their time is less than 30 minutes to Garcia while Pax has more than 45 minutes. On the 49th move, a pawn sacrifice by Pax threatens to win more materials aside from being up by 2 pawns. Instead of exchanging the queens, Pax resumed his winning game plan – keep on threatening mate. Facing a mate in 8 moves, Garcia resigned on his 53rd move.
                This leaves them both sporting an identical 2 wins and 2 losses slate. Pax is scheduled to play 7th seed Dennis Gonzales on Sunday, Nov. 15 in another game that was set to be played on Oct. 25.

            Other results of games played on Nov. 08 at Bethlehem Park: 2nd seed Cyril Tomas Montel, Jr. drew his game with 4th seed Jeff Balbalosa; Gonzalo Escapatoria, Jr. bounced back from last week loss and defeated John Malinao in 58 moves of French Defence; Women and junior division 2nd seed Baby Edna Mission clobbered Robert Godwin Sola in 46 moves of another French Defence; Felix Oling now leads the Reserves Division with a conquest of Josef Karlo Moyet in another 46 moves of Slav Defence. The last game of the day lasted till 7pm between Rafael Paloma and Glen Navarroza, in which the former won and set up the leading players match up for the 6th round –Oling vs. Paloma.

            The game between top seed Hernandez and CM Garcia lasted 77 moves of English Opening with Garcia prevailing and dealt Hernandez his 5th straight loss after winning the first 2 games. An irregularity was discovered by Hernandez 2 days later. The 16th move a3 was done again on the 34th move. When recording it to Chessbase, the program will not accept it. Something has gone wrong with the a pawn at a3. Maybe it was accidentally touched by Garcia and was moved back to a2. Both players are National Arbiters but they didn’t notice that irregularity. According to FIDE rules, any irregularities must be complained during games. If instead of 34. A3, it’s written as a4, the following are the sequences of moves: Garcia, Bernardo (1732) - Hernandez, Roberto (1840) [A16]
