In the tourney, each player was given 10 minutes.
“The prizes were minimal because our target is more on chess development”, said Mariveles Chess Club (MCC) President Louie Ramos.
“Players paid registration fee of P50.00, and it was Ka Paeng (Rafael Avelino) from Bureau of Customs Mariveles who sponsored the tournament”, he said.
“It is very good to know that there are people like Ka Paeng who support chess development at grassroots level”, said chess player Joselle ‘Madnus’ Moreno who placed second in the tournament.
Ramos also announced that MCC will hold chess tournament this coming September 9 in this town.
