Torre, the found­ing president of the National Chess Federation of the Philippines, is expected to encourage participants in the grassroots competition to continue to play chess and even share his secrets for his rise as one of the world’s top players during his time.

    “GM Eugene is the perfect choice to be our guest speaker since most of the young kids today look up to him as their idol, aside from our very own GM Wesley (So),” said MCC presi­dent Atty. Vicente “Vic” Aceveda, who organized the chess tournament.
