If only.

But just in case this blessed news is true, here's your epitaph.

<SPICE 2009: 4th
Corus B 2010: 4th
Spice 2010: 4th
Tata Steel B 2011: 4th
Airports Authority of India 2011: 4th.
Spice 2012: 4th.

Oct-28-12  MarkFinan: keypusher... LOL.

My own view Is all these Filipino's are just complete @#$%@#$%s, to put it nicely!

Oct-28-12  Absentee: <Benjamin1981: What will happen when his 30? He'll grow a beard? Start wearing sandals?>

Perhaps he'll start bowling and have people call him "The Dude".

Oct-28-12  Jim Bartle: Better watch out for the Nihilists, then!
Oct-29-12  drik: <tolengoy: <Your ignorance of Tennis is no less complete than your ignorance of Chess or you ignorance of Cosmology> Why didn't you mention golf? and billards?>

Because I only have to prove you a liar once - as I did by pointing out the ATP policy of INVITING the top 104 out 128 competitors.

I don't have to try to prove you a fool - anyone who refers to the great Bjorn Borg as Bjorg, needs no help in that regard. Confuse him with Bjork did you?

Oct-29-12  drik: <tolengoy: It's still a very good performance if you compare with with Magnus finishing <dead last>.>

His first & only poor performance. He finished SECOND in his next event, Linares if I remember right. So by his SECOND elite tournament, the 16 year old Carlsen was already better than Wesley So is ever likely to be. Hurts does it?

<...Wesley finishing in the middle of the pack...invited he is not.>

Wesley has never finsihed middle of the pack - he has NEVER qualified for an elite event in his life. Because he finished 4th, 4th & 4th in all 3 B events. Carlsen in contrast tied for first at the B event at his VERY FIRST ATTEMPT.

Oct-29-12  drik: <tolengoy: He has Arianne- his losing antidote:>

So having a girlfriend is the antidote to ratings inequity? Makes me wonder whether your ignorance of chess, tennis and cosmology is matched by your ignorance of women!

A closer look to the cake:

Oct-29-12  Parbrahman: With hard work, perseverance and the breaks going his way, the 4th of July can become the 1st of May.
Oct-30-12  drik: <tolengoy: <.but then you know So little - "Carlsen, by a fairly hefty 24.5-15.5 score." ...& Naka's best ICC rating was 3750. LOL!> fairly hefty you say? I say fairy tale....>

...knowing so little, it is not surprising you cannot distinguish between 'fairly hefty' and 'hefty fairy'. Perhaps it reflects on your social circles.

tsk tsk

u can't answer then <tolengoy> ... sayonara

Oct-31-12  kardopov: Peace beckons. No more bashing and counter-bashing pls!? 'Til next tournament would be ok.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: < tolengoy: ....some spelling corrections if you don't mind:

1. forth should be fourth
3. moar should be more>

On the first, you're right of course, but 'moar' is actually fairly commonly seen on the Internet.

If your fellow Pinoy stops posting stupid crap there can be peace much longer than that.

  brankat: It appears <tolengoy> has not been seen (under that user-name) ever since his Funeral, Oct-28-2102.

He shall not be missed :-)

Nov-16-12  Troller: <Brankat> He is alive and well under User: liwanag

As Troll-connaisseur it is always vexing to see young ambitious trolls succumb to peer pressure and retire, but rest assured <tolengoy> is not one of these quitters :)

Premium Chessgames Member
  brankat: <Troller> Thanks! Yes, his resurrection has been fully expected. SO, then, the show must go on :-)
Nov-16-12  liwanag: <He is alive and well under User: liwanag>

I went over the history of this page. I say the protagonist <tolengoy> makes a lot of sense...agreeing with him is one thing...branding me as his copycat is a serious allegation and must be based on empirical evidence than mere baseless insinuation.

Nov-16-12  liwanag: <If your fellow Pinoy stops posting stupid crap there can be peace much longer than that.>

I don't see any stupid crap but learned observations that carry a heavy load of poignant truth.

“Peace if possible, truth at all costs.” Martin Luther

Nov-16-12  Absentee: We love you, tolly.
Nov-16-12  Jim Bartle: Ha! One of tolengoy's and tahdah's favorite ploys was just that--you couldn't make any observations or accusations in the comments, unless they could be proven in a court of law. Very similar to liwanag.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: Curious, is it not, how our latest 'new' member winds up on this page of all places....
Nov-17-12  liwanag: <Very similar to liwanag.>

Same means they are Identical with no differences, similar means they are almost identical but have some minor differences.

<yeap, the little brat is back..> I doubt it...unless he was buried in the pet sematary:

Nov-17-12  liwanag: <With hard work, perseverance and the breaks going his way, the 4th of July can become the 1st of May.> I agree.
