Chess and Life

May isang kuwento ako tungkol sa paglalaro ko ng chess.

When I was a teenager, I was a university champion and varsity player competing at UAAP.

I once played then national master Andronico Yap in Baguio. He soon became an international master and Olympiad player.

Our game was drawn by repetition of moves.

Not long after, he was found dead. Allegedly suicide by drowning. Before he became a chess master, he witnessed his parents killed in front of him in Luneta.

Andronico is one of my vivid memories that makes me feel a passion to reach out to the chess world.

It could had been way different if the Gospel had been shared to Andronico and his mental health needs met.

Sharing the Gospel allows people, including chess players, to receive salvation and eternal life in Christ.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

“Chess is international and transcultural, recognised and played throughout the world in part because it represents so many elements of human experience and endeavour – work and play, hope and fear, science and art, truth and beauty, life and death.”
— Dr. Jonathan Rowson
