Sumilie Wins 1st WCC Blitz Chess

Wesley Chess Cafe had its first ever Blitz Chess Tournament last January 21, 2012 and Kenneth Ryan Sumilie of Bacoor won in the finals against Samuel Senador.

Here is our email from the brains behind the Cafe', Morpheus aka Sugardom:
"25 chess players of all ages participated. We have turned away some guys who came in late. The competition was intense. There were several strong players, like coaches. The format was knock-out 2 games. Time control 5/3 with armageddon in case of tie-break. In the finals, we have one named Samuel Senador who is a brother of IM Emmanuel Senador vs Kenneth Ryan Sumilie, an unrated player. Kenneth Ryan won the first Wesley Chess Cafe tournament and went home 2,500 pesos richer."
Congratulations to everyone for making this historic event a success!

I went there last night and played six games. The first two were eggs for me against Morpheus and then I won 3 against a nice fellow from Anabu, Imus. Of course I brought my two boys, Freedom and Miguel and because they were so bored waiting for me after feasting on their sandwiches, they played. Nice place indeed to bring your kids and have some chess.

Why not bring your family for a cup of coffee and an unlimited game of chess? Let us support the joint and maintain the place by playing chess at the Cafe'.

To end this post, Wesley Chess Cafe' will have another tournament on January 28, 2012, Saturday. Tournament starts at 1 in the afternoon. Time control is 10 minutes and it will be a 5 Round Swiss System. Don't be late because organizers are strict with latecomers. Registration fee is Php 100.00 or 130.00 if you want your registration with coffee.

Register now at the bar of Wesley Chess Cafe', 4th floor of Robinson's Place Imus or call or send an SMS to 09228984337 or 09237224280.
