CHESS TOURNAMENT 2009 The Battle for Quirino Chess King Crown

Quinoy Chess enthusiasts, get ready for the come-back of the year-end tournament to determine who will be the next Quirino Chess King and bring home the legendary “kamagong” icon.  The large size wooden King piece, which represents the crown as the reigning Chess Champion, is currently held by Engr. Jun Marzan, who won the 1997 year-end tournament.  After more than ten years, an initiative is under way again to revive the  league.

This year’s tournament is courtesy of Mr. Erwin Aragon, and Mr. Nick Marzan and their High School Batch  (ECRMNHS 1993).  More donors are expected to pour in to support the event, specially balikbayans and chess lovers.

The tournament will be entitled “The 2009 Year-end Chess Battle”.  This will be held from December 26 to 29, 2009 at the Senior Citizen’s Building, Brgy. Plaza. (Date and venue subject to changes).

The contest will consist of a Main Battle which is open to all ages, with 30 minutes time control for each player (Rules on time control is still subject to changes) and optionally a Junior Battle for up to 12 years old hopefuls.  The contest is open only for present or previous residents of Brgy. Quirino.  Previous residents who have acquired residence outside Brgy. Quirino may join as long as they have an existing ancestral house in Qurino where they could keep the legendary transferrable trophy.

Prizes at stake include Php3,000 and trophy for the Champion, Php2,000 and trophy for First Runner Up and Php1,000 and trophy for the Second Runner Up in the Main Battle.  The Champion  will also bring home for custody the Quirino Chess King Icon.
