|Sep-11-16|| ||epistle: Full throttle towards the finish line Master B2!|
|Sep-12-16|| ||pinoymaster77: 2 Iranian 'super teenagers' earned GM norms, sila Parham and IM Shahin. Naka draw IM Pau si Parham sa recent WJCC.|
Vietnam's Anh Khoi earned IM norm, this is double norm so I suppose he got complete norms already? 2448 na ELO nya so I suppose he already met the ELO for IM title
|Sep-12-16|| ||Pru: Kaya rin ni Pau maka GM, kailangan lang ng exposure. Yung 2 Iranians bukod na may foreign coach eh maraming exposure. Marami rin kasing pera dahil sa langis ang Iran.|
|Sep-12-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Korek, we will see in the 2 intl events to be hosted here in Dec, sana matuloy yang sked|
Hopefully, more PHI youth also play in the Dec intl events, and make a splash, di yung puro foreign GMs ang occupy ng TOP 5 and claim the USD prizes among themselves
|Sep-12-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Situation now ni IM Pau eh di na kagaya nung HS na home schooled, and mas may time for DAILY chess studies. Now eh College na and challenging pa course nya in BS Math and nakaka maintain pa ng high grades. Pareho sila ni WGM-Elect Janelle Frayna na excelling in academics, and sinasabay chess varsity stint|
|Sep-12-16|| ||Viktorerro: Kailangan nang mga exposure sa mga laban sa mga mamaw na halimaw na katulad ng Nigerian...para maging mala mamaw na halimaw ang mga hataw, at hindi hilaw na ampaw...|
|Sep-13-16|| ||Virgil A: Paulo. You have a bright future ahead of you. Continue what you're doing. Strive to reach your goals. Way to represent your country. Thank you!|
|Sep-25-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Posted this last week in FB, we can benchmark what 'emerging chess powers' are doing :|
A Coach-friend who closely follows global / PHI youth / grassroots development na research sI GM Babakuli Annakov (orig from Turkmenistan, 12 yrs Coach in a Texas school), Evgeny Pigusov, GM Zerebukh, Gabor Kalai and of course GM Ino are among the Coaches of next bruited about USA prodigy GM Jeffrey Xiong.
Also among GM Annakov's studes are IM Li (featured article in this thread), IM Josh Sheng, Simona Nayberg,Victoriya Nazarova.
Naasar daw Nil's BFF si PT, kapag nabibigyan ng credit etong Coaches, Kasparov Foundation, Sinquefeld group, eh bakit kaya di naman kasama GM Xiong sa Spice program? Is it due to competition,bad for business?
And sana part of post-2014 'promises' ng NCFP after that stormy, shouting meeting in Norway eh makakuha ang NCFP ng focussed Coach / Trainer for ELITE youth na Master-candidates. And yung mga naka payroll as Coach eh really do the job of Coaches, with specific objectives for their assigned player - #ELO gain per year, titles earned etc..... if we really aspire to catchup even just with Asian neighbors
|Sep-26-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Isa pa daw watchout eh Uzbekistan. Coach ay Dmitry Kayumov, 67 yrs old. Current Uzbek prodigies sila 12 YR OLD Nodirbek Abdussatorov (naglaro sa Malaysia Open nasa top 10), Jahokvir Sindarov, Shamsiddin Vokhidov and Ortik Nimatov. We migh start seeing them in the next Uzbek Olympiad teams,|
Coach Kayumov was also previously hired by Vietnam, kasama sa students si IM Nguyen Anh Khoi and now WGM Thi Mai Hung (5th WGM ng Viets).
German prodigy eh 11 yr old Vincent Keymer, direct student ni Kasparov since he was hired, nag 3rd recently sa Vienna Open.
We have to keep track and also learn from their success stories, looks like yung mga galling USSR na attended some Russian chess school eh effective din and affordable. Back when Campo was still alive, he reportedly mentioned Dvoretsky to NCFP Pres Pichay to support Wesley back then, but somehow di natuloy. Eh Dvoretsky commands rate daw na over USD 100 per hour ?!
Our own bbking natigil development, even just towards IM level, maybe he's now over 12, mga U12s na kasabay nya na sila Concio and Quizon
|Sep-26-16|| ||epistle: But why pay attention to the future of the young when you already have the oldies here who had already arrived at the future?|
|Sep-27-16|| ||pinoymaster77: We're all mortals and there's bound to be a transition at some time.|
I mentioned Dvoretsky, the chess world was saddened by his death today at age 68 na pala, and moment of silence observed in the Tal Memorial. I was just able to listen to early part of the video with GM Gustaffson, the general answer on training is it depends on the individual's playing style and personality. I have Mark's Endgame Manual, probably the 1st edition and showed it to some players for the basic principle of opposition, which sadly some beginners are not drilled in their early stages
|Sep-27-16|| ||pinoymaster77: More on now legendary Trainer / Coach Dvoretsky :|
"One day I realised that I look at chess in a different way from previously and with other eyes than those of a practical player. But I value variations and exact analysis as highly as before. Without them, any general discussions become indefensible, unprovable, and float in the air. But it is impossible for me not to look for the essence of the position behind the variations and the hidden mechanisms that direct the play. Here we have not only chess ideas and technical devices, but also the rules of thought and the principles of rational searching and decision-taking.
Mark Dvoretsky wrote this in the preface to his very first book, "Secrets of Chess Training," published by Batsford 25 years ago. In all his writings that followed, this approach to chess training would return—in short: the search for the truth by thorough analysis."
"Dvoretsky is seen as arguably the best chess trainer in the world; a reputation he built from the late 1970 onward in the Soviet Union. The fame was based on a unique and original training method, developed by Dvoretsky himself. It consisted of creating a "diagnosis" for each student, noting what were his skills and his weaknesses. His method combined lectures and practical training. For each skill, he had numerous chess positions in a huge database (written in an old computer language), dealing with e.g. intermediate moves, combinational vision, or prophylaxis. His collection includes thousands of positions."
|Sep-27-16|| ||pinoymaster77: From the videos, realized Dvo not focused on openings, but on strategic thinking, calculation and analyzing positions, and of course on endgames.|
I remember during the sole session my 2 youngest boys and Jasper had with the late IM Rudy Tan Cardoso, he was a stickler on endgames, since as I recalled almost half of actually played games reach the endgame. A player who consciously steers his games to endgame phase after getting an advantage is Panopio Jr of Calamba.
Of course AFGM Euge is one of foremost endgame maestros, and continues to weave his legend.
|Sep-28-16|| ||epistle: Endgames are not important. Just be good enough not to let your opponents survive your opening and middle game mastery.|
|Sep-28-16|| ||izimbra: Some players need to be thinking all the time about what path they are following to get to a win and whether it is going to connect.|
|Oct-17-16|| ||pinoymaster77: All the best sa finals of current sem, then puede naman harapin ulit chess studies....|
|Oct-23-16|| ||pinoymaster77: World Jrs champ GM Xiong was not able to show he's up to the current US elites when he cannot make headway vs GM Robson in the final round of recently concluded Spice Cup. GM Sevian won his last round game to tie GM Robson at the top with 6.5/9 and even ended up with higher tiebreak. Baka etong si GM Sevian pa mas hinog. Also in the field were US youngsters IMs Ruifeng, Awonder Liang and Chandra but it seems dipa sila hinog to challange the current US top GMs.|
Most of the youngsters would again see action in the UTD Fall Open next month. Malamang yung mga taga Spice/Webster eh sasali. Lets see if UTD alumni GM Ino can play
|Oct-24-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Good projections for the 11 yr old Indian boy wonder Praggy. Devt of our own bbking got stunted, has not shown dominance even at ASEAN level|
|Dec-05-16|| ||pinoymaster77: All the best to IM Pau in both Subic events. The campaign continues|
|Dec-05-16|| ||spawn2: IM Pau,
Goodluck! Hope you bring home a GM norm.
|Dec-06-16|| ||pinoymaster77: All the best vs ExNM Panopio. Kung umabot ng endgame yan eh exciting, hopefully PGNs can be published after eavh playing day, only 18 games per round naman|
|Dec-10-16|| ||pinoymaster77: 2 of the notable games so far are in round 1 the win by FM Segarra over Belarus GM Stupak, and just kanina the win of GM-Elect Haridas over SuperGM Levan from Georgia.|
Kasi di makita sa PGNs of yound 1 games yung win ni FM Segarra
|Dec-31-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Happy New Year to Bersamina family!
Looking forward to UAAP Chess, it will possibly be sked in Jan again. Contending teams will continue to work on their strategies and probe on perceived weaknesses in the line-ups of the 'powerhouse' schools which went away with the championships last season :
NU Bulldogs for Mens College (Mansanero has grad from board 4)
DLSU for Womens College (if Enriquez can play for FEU and with recruit Yaon, FEU can challenge again?)
FEU for HS - they're intact and Miciano and Morado have gone even stronger, can NU and UST effectively challenge?
|Dec-31-16|| ||spawn2: Happy New Year IM Pau and family!|
|Dec-31-16|| ||bubuli55: Happy New Year 2017! IM Paulo and family.|
