MANILA, Philippines – The incentives for winning medals in last month’s SEA Games will go a long way for top three earners Iris Ranola of billiards, bowler Frederick Ong and chesser Wesley So.

The 18-year-old So, on the other hand, said he’ll use the P150,000 he received for winning the blitz gold and individual standard silver to finance his trip to the US next year as he resumes his campaign in several top-level tournaments.

“I’ll probably use it when I go to the US early next year,” said So, the youngest Filipino chess GM.
