THE BIGGEST and richest 1st Manny Pacquiao Cup Random Chess Team Tournament will unfurl on September 4 and 5 at the SM City General Santos.
Tournament coordinator Jimmy Dano bared this to Sun.Star Davao in a Facebook message on Tuesday.
He said the seven-round Swiss System format competition stakes a whopping cash prize of P300,000 to the champion team.
The runner-up will take home P200,000 while the third-placer will pocket P100,000. The next four placers will receive P50,000, P30,000, P20,000 and P10,000.
A consolation prize of P7,000 will be given away to the eighth to 10th placers while the 11th to 15th placers will each settle for P5,000.
Top board 1 performer will also romp away with P5,000 while top boards 2, 3 and 4 woodpushers will claim P3,000 each.
