Play and Learn with FM Deniel Causo

Guess who’s back? With his amazing chess analyses and games recently, his Facebook page, Biyaherong Chess Coach has gained 11,000 followers and counting! Currently representing Team Manila Indios Bravos and the 24th strongest player in the Philippines, let us formally welcome FM Deniel Causo! He will be teaching youth players 13 years old and below for free!

Along with National Master Rolly Parondo, FM Causo is the head coach of the Double Bishop Chess Academy, an established chess school in Thailand. Started to play only at the age of 15, he participated at the renowned Shell National Youth tournament in 2003 and emerged as the winner of the competition. From there, his passion for chess did not waver despite already moving to Thailand. He continued to be a mentor to many children who became FIDE Masters themselves and at the same time play competitive chess. In 2017, he joined the Phitsanulok International Chess Open. Despite being the third seeded player, he emerged first with 5 wins and 1 draw, also besting his fellow Filipino compatriots. A year later, together with Michael Concio and IM Ranola Yves, he participated in the 2018 LEAP Hong Kong International Open and shared first place with Aoshima Mirai from Japan.
