"Iba talaga pag Pilipinas ang winawagayway mo sa ibang bansa lalo na 60 bansa ang kasali ilaan mo ang lahat pati na ang buhay para sa ikakatagumpay at talagang ipaglalaban mo," said the Quezon City ace Antonio.

"Sana ang panalo ko (Rogelio "Joey" Antonio Jr.,) ay magbubukas ng pinto para sumigla muli ang chess,' added, the former top player of University of Manila.
