Eugenio Torre

Below are Eugene Torre's games from the 1974 Nice Olympiad (second best performance on board 1, right behind Anatoly Karpov), which made him the first Asian to obtain a GM title, and his 1982 Toluca Interzonal victory (shared first with Hungarian GM Lajos Portisch), which made him the first Asian to get to the Candidates. Eugenio Torre hails from Iloilo, Western Visayas, Philippines; and is the first Ilonggo, Visayan, Filipino, and Asian to become a Chess Grandmaster and a Candidate for the World Championship Title. He also now holds the world record in number of Chess Olympiad appearances- 21 times, and after the upcoming 2014 Olympiad, it will be a mind-boggling 22 times!

I have also placed in GM Torre's decisive games against the World Champions.
