The ASEAN Chess Confederation has formally announced the creation of an ASEAN GP series. Dubbed the ASEAN Masters International Chess Grand Prix, the inaugural series will be held across 3 ASEAN members with a total prize fund of USD$25,000. Details and regulations are available here.

Of interest to RP chess fans is also an announcement from NCFP boss Congressman Prospero Pichay. The confederation's minutes record that, "To be No. 1 in Asia, the Congressman also agreed that there is a need to have chess as a subject in schools and to have a chess academy in the Philippines too."
