by Ofelia C. Empian

Baguio’s young chess wizard Bea Mendoza is eyeing a medal finish in the 18th ASEAN Age Group Chess Championships 2017 set from Nov. 25 to Dec. 4 in Singapore.

The Grade 11 senior high school student of University of Baguio will represent the Philippines in the girls division of the under-16 age group. 

The 16-year-old Mendoza won a gold in the same event in 2013 in the 12-under and a silver and bronze medals in 2014.

Mendoza joined FIDE Master Samantha Glo Revita for Team Cordillera and helped win the team event of standard chess in the 2017 Palarong Pambansa in Antique in April.

She also won the individual gold in blitz then combined with Revita to take the gold.

She will see action together with fellow national athlete Kylen Mordido who helped Team Southern Tagalog in the team standard to a silver finish behind the Revita-Mendoza duo.

Mendoza and Mordido will join thousands of chess whiz from various countries in the event’s different categories including Under-8, Under-10, Under-12, Under-4, Under-18 and Under-20.

The Asean Chess Championships will also have open events and seniors 50 and 65 age groups.

The standard chess will have a time control of 90 minutes with 30 seconds increment for each player to complete the game. Each player in the rapid chess will be accorded 25 minutes to complete the game.

In the blitz chess, each player is given five minutes to finish the game.

It would be the fifth consecutive time for Mendoza in the ASEAN event.
