CEBU, Philippines — The Cebu Executives and Professionals Chess Association (CEPCA) will be holding its first face-to-face tournament since the outbreak of the global pandemic over two years ago.

Billed as Prexy Jerry’s Birthday Individual Open Chess Tournament, the one-day tilt is set on May 22 at the Barracks Chess Club in Robinsons Galleria Cebu.

A total of P20,000 in cash prize will be given away to the top finishers of the nine-round Swiss system competition that serves as birthday treat of CEPCA President Engr. Jerry Maratas to the Cebuano chess players. 

The champion will pocket P5,000 while the second to fifth placers will take home P3,000, P2,000, P1,000 and P700, respectively. The sixth to 15th will receive P500 each.

The top three Cepcans (A and B) will get a bonus of P500 apiece as well as the top senior, lady and kiddie players.

Registration fee is pegged at P150 but the Cepcans, ladies, kiddies, and seniors will be assessed with only P100.

For further information, one may contact CEPCA’s Jun Olis at 0942-4641565. — EBV
