The Philippine Army chess team top player Laylo, who won the 1st Chooks-to-Go National Rapid Chess Championship held last year at Vista Mall, Sta. Rosa in Laguna, loom as the player to beat in the two-day event owing to his current impressive performance.


“Words don’t even describe how excited I am to be playing for The Search for the next Wesley So at the Alphaland Makati Place in Makati City," said the San Roque, Marikina City pride Laylo, part of the Coaching staff of Ateneo de Manila University chess team.

“A privilege and an honour and I'll do my very best," last word of Laylo, who hails from Lipa City, Batangas, and a close friend of World's number 3 Super Grandmaster Wesley So.
The event, hosted by the National Chess Federation of the Philippines (NCFP) Chairman/President Surigao del Sur. Rep. Prospero "Butch" Arreza Pichay Jr. in cooperation with the Alphaland Makati Place, offers a total pot prize of P50,000.

Bannering the youth challenge are eight-year-old Al-Basher "Basty" Buto, Michael Concio Jr., Mark Jay Bacojo, Daniel Quizon, Jerlyn Mae San Diego and Kylen Joy Mordido.

The rate of play is 30 minutes plus five seconds delay active time control format in this two-day affair with the aim of developing the country's youth stars and helping sharpen their skills according to Atty. Orbe.
