Bacolod native Nunilon Fulo III  nagkampeon sa New Zealand Senior Chess Championship 2020

MANILA, Philippines-- Pinagharian ni Nunilon Fulo III  ang katatapos na New Zealand Senior Chess Championship 2020 na ginanap sa Auckland Chess Centre sa Auckland, New Zealand mula November 26 hanggang 29, 2020.


Nakipaghatian si Fulo sa kababayang si Candidate Master (CM) Benjamin Lim sa sixth at final round nitong Linggo tungo sa total scores  4.5 points mula three wins at three draws sa six outings.
Ito din ang puntos na parehas na naitala nina Fide Master (FM) Leonard Mc Laren, Gordon Morrell, Candidate Master (CM) Benjamin Lim at Fide Master (FM) Robert E Gibbons. Subalit nakopo ni Fulo ang first place sa bisa ng mas mataas na tie break points.
Ang 51 years old Fulo na ang trabaho ay nasa retail sector sa Rotorua, New Zealand na tubong Bacolod City, Negros Occidental ay tumapos ng postgraduate diploma sa Management Business sa New Zealand.
Dahil sa tagumpay, napataas ni Fulo ang moral ng bansa ayon kay Auckland, New Zealand based Ceferino "Jun" Isaac Jr., dating miyembro ng Philippine National Police chess team at nakatatandang kapatid ni ex-PBA player Leo Isaac.
“Once again our flag has been raised in this foreign land after knowing that our Filipino kababayan Nunilon Fulo III  and Candidate Master (CM) Benjamin Lim share first places in the just ended New Zealand Senior Chess Championship 2020 over the board chess tournament ,” ani Isaac.
“(It’s) proof that the Filipinos can really compete internationally in the field of mind sports (chess game). Fulo and Lim opened the doors for us Filipinos (Senior Chess Championship) and I believe there will be more who will come out and compete in the future." huling pananalita ni Isaac na kumatawan sa New Zealand sa FIDE Online Asian Senior Chess Championship na ginanap nitong taong ito.
Ang nasabing over the board chess tournament ay inorganisa ng Auckland Chess Centre kung saan ang Chief Organiser ay si IO Michael V R Steadman habang ang Chief Arbiter ay si IA Keong Ang.-Marlon Bernardino-
