Manny Pacquiao's son plays Board 3 for Brent

As reported by Chesswindows Laguna chess correspondent Anthony Navarro, Manny Pacquaio's son Emmanuel Pacquiao (I guess the eldest) is playing Board 3 for Brent School Team B in the Grade School category of the League of Southern Manila Schools (LSMS) Chess Team Championship.

This is good news, folks. I am not a visionary, but I feel that this young boy will make a big difference in Philippine chess. That 'big difference' is left for us to discover, watch out for, or tap.

A Manny Pacquaio Chess Cup is within reach. I bet my word on it.
