  1. Prayer is the key for Wesley So success…let us join together and pray for his continued success in the game of chess…sooner than you think he will eventually become a world champion. I was in a tournament with him in Subic International chess classic way back in 2007 and I watch him play those talented grandmasters and I knew then that he will become a world champion someday. May the almighty God continue to bless you my dear friend. Take good care!
