This year’s 2nd Atty. Roque “King” Y. Bonganciso Memorial Rapid Chess Open is set for Monday, Feb. 7 at the Dumaguete City Memorial Park. The one-day activity will start at 9 am where each participant is given only 25 minutes to finish the game.

Nelly Delmo-Bonganciso and family announced the following prizes: P3,000 for the champion courtesy of Mr. & Mrs. Edgar Y. Teves; P2,000 for 2nd place ourtesy of Nico Angelo L. Lim; P1,500 for the 3rd place courtesy of Mr. & Mrs.Virgilio Tia; P1,000 for 4th place; and six consolation prizes.

This annual activity, sponsored by family and friends of the late Atty. King Bonganciso, is a tribute to one of Negros Chess Club’s avid patron and supporter. A great player himself, King will always be remembered as an honorable man, a brilliant CPA-lawyer who chose the path of living life in simplicity.

King spared his vacant moments as a chess aficionado, a former president of the Chess Club, adviser, and pillar of inspiration along the promotion of this game in the community. King also spent his leisure time among his fisher-relatives in his family’s residence in Maluay, Zamboanguita.

Last year, no less than the Province’s top players participated in the tournament, but the show was stolen by John Lee Antonio and Junaico Segismar who tied for first place, ahead of two National Masters, master-calibers, and veteran campaigners.

There is no registration fee for the chess open and in addition, free lunch will be served to the participants. Deadline of registration is on Sunday, Feb. 6 at the Negros Club 64 Inc headquarters. (PR)
