As a result of a variety of strokes of luck and a respectable finish at a regional chess event in March, Elmer Prudente gained himself a slot at the FIDE Earth Cup, held in Russia from July 11 to Aug. 6.

He is the lowest-rated player in the field of more than 200 players — all, like Prudente, winners of their districts. All of them are at least masters.

Prudente’s opening match is towards a entire world-rated participant, Sanen Sjugirov, actively playing in his household place. Prudente is only a prospect grasp, with no earth position. At least not yet, he said. He convinces himself that he has a opportunity.

Started youthful

Prudente has vivid memories as a 10-year-aged growing up in Iloilo, Philippines. His father had offered him the selection among academia and chess, and there was no hesitation: chess, Prudente answered.
