Asia's first chess grandmaster, Eugenio Torre will be holding a fund raising simultaneous exhibition match for the benefit of our RP Paralytic team, on September 5, that's tomorrow, Saturday, 9:00 am at MERALCO Lopez basement canteen, Ortigas, Pasig city. The entry fee is just P500 (that's a bargain folks, I tell you!). For reservation and details, please visit Meralco chess club blog or inquire through email to Mr. Rolly Sol Cruz, president of Meralco chess at email@example.com. Walk in participants is also allowed as long as there are available slots left, of course. This is going to be the second wave of fund raising event for the benefit of our RP paralytic team after the successful staging of simul match conducted by GM Rogelio "Joey" Antonio last August 1, also at Meralco. According to Rolly Sol Cruz, GM Torre opted to skip the Echiverri Cup National Rapid chess team (but eventually postponed!) slated September 5 - 6 in Caloocan City to give way for this fund raising event. GM Bong Villamayor also aired his intention to conduct a simultaneous match sometime next month.
The ever amiable (as always) GM Eugene is more than ready to answer all your questions about him and of course, chess. Take advantage of it. We'll see you all there and don't forget to bring your camera for the after the match wild photo sessions.
It should be fun!
