Here's the complete list of the players that will represent the country in the inaugural World Mind Games scheduled Oct. 3-13 in Beijing, China. There will be five mind sports competitions: Bridge, Chess, Go, Draughts, and Xiangqi (Chinese Chess). Philippines will be participating in chess discipline. And don't let your eyes deceived you.
