Tournament Organizer Atty. Rudy Rivera said that chess was a game fit for all.

"Chess is a mind game which does not entail too much cost to stage," he said. "Let this be the start of succeeding chess competitions in Quezon City."

Antonio, Councilor Janet "Babes" Malaya and Councilor Hero Clarence Bautista of the Fourth District Quezon City and Barkadahan Para sa Bansa Party List headed by Atty. Nolan V. Banda and National Campaign Manager Dr. Ariel B. Potot led the opening rites.
