Sa kabila ng pagiging US Citizen, buo pa rin ang suporta ni Grandmaster Wesley So sa propesyunal na torneo ng chess na kasalukuyang umuusad dito sa bansa.

Sa nalalabing araw bago ang playoffs sa Professional Chess Association of the Philippines (PCAP), inilahad ng pamunuan nito na ipapangalan sa World Fischer Random Champion at tubong Cavite woodpusher ang susunod na komperensiya, at tatawagin itong Wesley So Cup.

“Aside from lending his name, So likewise personally pledged to provide the funds for the event’s cash prizes,” sabi ni PCAP President-Comminsioner Atty. Paul Elauria.

Samantala, pinasalamatan din ni Atty. Elauria ang San Miguel Corporation (SMC) sa pangunguna ni President at COO Ramon Ang na nagpaabot din ng kanilang suporta sa nasabing liga.
