Former world chess champion Gary Kasparov, considered to be one of the greatest chess players of all time, ponders his next move in a chess game against Philippine Senator from Cagayan de Oro City Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III.

Pimentel was once a chess standout in his younger years for Ateneo de Manila University and the University of the Philippines. I have read in one of his articles that Senator Koko even had a chess book signed personally by his idol Gary Kasparov (when he was here in the Philippines during the Chess Olympiad). The now 50-year old Kasparov is currently in Manila as part of his Asian swing trying to got votes from different chess federations for the FIDE (International Chess Federation) presidency.
