Li Chao becomes Asian Chess Champion (Updated)

The 2013 Asian Continental Championship (Open) was held on 18-26th May in Manila, Philippines. The tournament was organized by the National Chess Federation of the Philippines and Eugene Torre Chess Foundation, Inc.

75 players from 14 federations, including 26 Grandmasters and 18 IMs, took part in the tournament.

Chinese Grandmaster Li Chao emerged Asian Continental Champion after concluding the tournament with 7,0/9 points.

Half a point behind, there were five players sharing the 2nd place. Local chess fans are delighted that Philippines’ Grandmasters Oliver Barbosa and Mark Paragua grabbed the silver and bronze medals respectively.

Further, Le Quang Liem (Vietnam, 4th), Adhiban Baskaran (India, 5th) and Sasikiran Krishnan (India, 6th) also qualified for the 2013 World Chess Cup.

Asian Continental grants five places in the World Cup, but GM Barbosa already qualified in 2012 (thanks to Joeyj for info).
