|Jun-15-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Elevated pala to a Continental championship ang ASEAN Age Group, kaya top 3 of the U20 get IM/WIM norms and pati pala U18 champs may IM/WIM title :|
"As a newly designated continental championship there were increased title and norm opportunities for the players and there were no less than 31 of which one (Tin) got a GM norm, one more (Galas) got a WGM norm and two got IM norms and three WIM norms.
Lu Chan Hung from Vietnam and Chitlange Sakshi from India, Open U-18 and Girls U-18 winners respectively would have been particularly happy that they also got direct IM and WIM titles."
|Jun-17-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Unoffcial tally 26 golds for Team PHI, per Manila Standard's / Arman article
Welcome back to our players / delegation, they returned last night!|
|Jun-30-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Happy birthday to gmlet ! Next year eh golden na rin.|
Get FULLY WELL soon, we continue to PRAY
|Jul-04-15|| ||pinoymaster77: CHAMPION sa ASEAN Chess si Jayson Visca of Las Pinas City, IM Pau's sparring mate, ETCF Coach and ace UE alumni.|
Ang tanong, meron sanang CHESS sa 2017 SEAG in Malaysia... and meron nga kaya ulit nitong ASEAN Chess, Random 360 (Fischer) and Transfer Chess (Tandem)?
Yung ASEAN chess pala, ang pawns ng white eh nasa 3rd rank, while black's pawns nasa 6th rank sa starting position
|Sep-27-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Gmlet has been called by our Maker. Condolence to Bersamina family.|
A stalwart for whats right in chess, a very generous person with a heart for aspiring chess players specially indigent cases who aspire for educational scholarship thru chess, he will surely be missed but remembered for his firm principles and charitable actions.
|Sep-28-15|| ||epistle: Our condolences to IM Bersamina whose father just passed away.|
|Sep-28-15|| ||mysql: Shocked by this news. I thought he was recovering well from that spinal injury. Condolences to the Bersamina family. :(|
|Sep-28-15|| ||SugarDom: Philippine Chess lost a good man.
Sad day. Condolence to Bersamina family.
|Sep-29-15|| ||gokusano: My condolence to the Bersamina Family who will now miss the man gmlet.|
|Sep-30-15|| ||wordfunph: condolence to IM Pau and family.
|Sep-30-15|| ||iking: Condolence Pau ....|
|Oct-03-15|| ||spawn2: IM Pau,
Condolence to you and your family. It was a privileged to worked with your father in educating students under CFBCI on the beauty of the royal game. He was willing to share his learnings for free because he believes that chess can help young students become better people if guided correctly.
We are aware of your father's dream for you. Rest assured that you will have our support for you to fulfill that dream.
Spend this time with your family but soon, you will need to focus in putting that dream into reality.
|Oct-03-15|| ||Pulo y Gata: I condole with the Bersamina family. Gmlet was a principled and upright man who was ready to share both knowledge and materials to those in need. RIP, gmlet.|
|Oct-12-15|| ||pinoymaster77: It brings back memories of that NCC Semis (was that 3 or 4 years ago now?)on the pre-arranged draws in most of the top 5 board matches in the final round of the NCC Semis. This sparked a very lively discussion / debate on these pre-arranged draws, 'GM draws' and the principles behind.|
Late pren Gmlet also cited GM Maurice Ashley's stand as well, wala pang Millionaire Chess nuon, now he's got a chance to implement in his pet events :
Ashley told Chess.com he wasn't sure either. "I'm not going to begrudge the players for playing their favorite move."
He added more poignant thoughts on the tournament broadcast: "It makes chess look like a farce, that's why we wrote it into the rules...The draw rule is about making fans see real games...You don't want to make a travesty of our game by disrespecting the viewing public.
"If we're ever going to be a televisual event that garners fans from around the world we can't have these kind of games."
He repeated his admiration for both players but referred to so-called "grandmaster draws" as a "stain on our game."
|Oct-23-15|| ||pinoymaster77: All the best to IM Pau / Chief Bulldog in the BOGM. Sana naka cram kahit papaano and catchup sa chess studies, and shake off the rust.|
Rd1 vs WIM Frayna mamaya then bukas eh big day vs GMs Dar and Rich
|Oct-23-15|| ||spawn2: Goodluck IM Pau|
|Oct-24-15|| ||epistle: Did Pau win?|
|Oct-29-15|| ||pinoymaster77: After 9 rounds, with the lone loss to GM Rich (current leader) with 7 draws, Pau has 3.5pts. -2 for ELO, this is his first major Seniors tournament after gmlet's accident. And he is still adjusting to 'self study' mode with no fulltime second. Hopefully, he can whip up the old form in Subic in Nov for the 2 intl events there|
|Nov-04-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Just few days rest siguro after BOGM then sunugan na naman ng kilay for the 2 intl events in Subic. All the best, malamang byahe na to Subic this weekend, sa Mon na rd1 ng PICC event|
|Nov-05-15|| ||gokusano: Go paulo!|
|Nov-05-15|| ||epistle: <huhok: <NeonFox> I read the news but it is not on FIDE.com. >|
Ha ha. Umaasa pa. Hope, indeed, springs infernal for these adoring turnips.
|Nov-12-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Good recovery last Wed by IM Pau with 2 wins, then a draw vs GM Joey yesterday to climb to 3pts, next would be IM Yves this am in rd7.|
|Nov-14-15|| ||pinoymaster77: IM Pau finished with 5/10 for a tie for 15th to 22nd, along with our 4 GMs, after tiebreaks at 21st. Par for the course, but kapos for GM norm hunt. Have a good rest day today then have a renewed vigor the the PSC / Puregold event naman.|
Took a look at the PGNs, just for a feel of the games :
BERSAMINA, Paulo (2361) - SMIRNOV, Pavel (2617)

|Nov-14-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Just my batil observation it was even in the middlegame, and Pau was the aggressor pa with kingside pawn advance. Somehow the pawns were overextended and picked up 1 by 1.|
There was a sequence of possible repetition in the mid 30s moves, but Pau changed the king move, it was downhill from there.
A chessmate opined doesn't the sequence 34. Rg3 Qe4 Rf3 Qg4 Kh2 Qh4 Bh3 be winning for white?
Sana the analysts-friend could chime in. Iskuba for a rare visit? Some overview look at OTB, then later na run sa engine for 'consultation'
|Nov-16-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Dahil nasa lower half, at ranked 29th out of a bigger field of 44 eh IM Pau goes up against GM Mozharov in the opening round. AFGM Euge vs WIM Galas ulit, baka this time she shows up since walang pasok this APEC week?|
Noted nadagdag eh Pinoy campaigners like youngsters Pimentel Turqueza Garcia, and veteran Masters Senador Segarra Pacis DelaCruz and more Women Masters like Suede San Diego and PICC Challengers champ WFM Shania Mendoza
