|Feb-04-17|| ||pinoymaster77: Ka text Coach Zeus of UE, for his teams :
Mens 1-3 vs FEU
Women 2-2 vs UP
HS 2-2 vs Adamson
When I asked on NU vs UP sa Mens eh winalis ng Bulldogs and Maroons to start their title retention bid
Bukas sa round 2 ang inaabangan eh sa Womens eh defending champion DLSU vs FEU, while sa HS eh defending champion FEU vs UST
Sa Mens, still monitoring who among FEU, DLSU or other pretenders can really mount a challenge to defending champion NU
|Mar-06-17|| ||pinoymaster77: Resume na muna UAAP campaign, for the NU Mens team title retention bid.|
Then have another level of preparation before the next international event, if its going to be in Bangkok

If cro777 is not on a break, would like to request games analysis for the round 4 & 5 games by IM Pau vs the 2 German GMs please
|Apr-12-17|| ||cro777: 17th Bangkok Chess Open (Round 4)
"Playing white, Bersamina, 19, couldn't find anything out of the slight positional edge he sustained from his solid opening play and ended up drawing Bindrich, whose rating of 2582 is way higher than his 2417, in a Queen-and-bishop versus Queen-and-knight endgame." (Philstar)
Paulo Bersamina – Falko Bindrich
Closed Ruy Lopez: Chigorin Variation.
The key moments of the game were at 14.Ne3?! (leading to an even game) and 39…Nf6? (Black missed his better chances in a Q+B vs Q+N endgame).
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6 4. Ba4 Nf6 5. O-O Be7 6. Re1 b5 7. Bb3 d6 8. c3 O-O 9. h3 Na5 10. Bc2 c5 11. d4 Qc7 12. Nbd2 Bd7 13. Nf1 Nc4

14. Ne3?! < A rare line. White cannot count on an opening advantage. The main move is 14.b3 W So vs Carlsen, 2015 >

In this type of endgame (Q+B vs Q+N), the addition of the queens completely changes the nature of the play in comparison to the pure B vs N endgame. In a balanced position Bersamina had strayed from the right path (35.g3 instead of 35.h4) and now Bildrich stands clearly better.
39…Nf6? <Black missed his chances. He could have played 39…Qd1+ followed by …Nc5. It is now a draw.>

Falko Bindrich (2582) is a German grandmaster and trainer. In 2012 he was accused of cheating, not for proven use, but for refusing to allow the arbiter to examine the phone he had with him during multiple toilet visits during last weekend's Bundesliga round. He denied accusations.
Bindrich started as a chess prodigy (he became a FIDE Master at the age of 13):
|Apr-12-17|| ||pinoymaster77: Thanks for that cro777, was trying to check PGNs, round 4 palang nasa chess results and somehow didn't see the IM Pau vs GM Bindrich game.|
Well maybe for that momentous round 5 win vs GM Huschenbeth 2588 eh baka bukas pa ma download. This seems to be IM Pau's BIGGEST win to-date vs a GM? Was checking also his CG games posted from the World Juniors, 2016 Olympiad and recent Zonals....
IM Pau will probably be up against a theoretical battle vs seasoned elite games analyst GM Gustaffson 2626 this afternoon !
From the above CG write-up, Pau's hightest ELO was 2405 back in 2015, so now he's at 2417 na pala, so has recovered, and definitely on track na may ELO gain from this Bangkok Open
|Apr-13-17|| ||pinoymaster77: Our 'Gabriela Silangs' came out to play in the Bangkok Open as well!|
WFM Doroy Allaney Jia G PHI 1962 0 1 - 0 0 IM Swayams Mishra IND 2450 17

Nasa CG Page ni WNM Christy Bernales yung PGN ng BIG WIN nya vs Spanish GM Bellon! Can ask cro777's analysis there? Been sometime since last post dun, nung 2014 Olympiad team qualification pa...
|Apr-13-17|| ||cro777: 17th Bangkok Chess Open (Round 5)
Niclas Huschenbeth – Paulo Bersamina
Sicilian Defense: Unusual lines. Bersamina surprised the opponent in the early stage of the game: 4…Bc5 (instead of the usual 4…a6, the Kan Variation) is a very rare line more suited for blitz chess (Russian grandmaster Vitiugov played it several times, including the World blitz championship). Huschenbeth had better position in the middlegame, but didn’t find the right plan (25.Ncb6 instead of 26.Ne5). Bersamina outplayed the opponent in the endgame.
1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 e6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Bc5 <unusual move in this position> 5. Be3 Qb6 6. Nb5 Bxe3 7. fxe3 d5 <The alternatives are 7…Qxe3+, 7…Nf6 and 7…Nc6>

Bersamina should be credited for original and fighting chess.
GM Niclas "The Dark Knight" Huschenbeth (2588) was the German Champion in 2010. From 2012 to 2014 he played for the Baltimore Kingsfishers in the United States Chess League.
In 2015 Huschenbeth played on board 1 for the UMBC Chess team at the Final Four of College Chess (with Nazi Paikidze on the team and Alexander Onischuk as the coach):
|Apr-13-17|| ||pinoymaster77: That is indeed music to the ears!
Godspeed to IM Paulo Bersamina sa remaining 4 games for his GM norm campaign!
"Bersamina should be credited for original and fighting chess."
(Will just do some sharings after the event)
|Apr-15-17|| ||pinoymaster77: Recharge and regroup for Pau & company
IM Jem has 6/8 but low TPR and plays untitled Chinese U18 Dai, but no picnic
Malamang eh our top U20 would be fielded naman in the East Asia Juniors in May in Tagaytay, reportedly would be 3.3 Zonals plus China.
Some 3 to 4 weeks pa, but sana eh merong ganitong development :
- Suggested to chess friends our main bets to hopefully have private audience with Mr. Bobby just to go over how they use softwares and do prepa. Baka lang may makuhang tips/advice. UAAP players had games sked on the day Mr. Bobby did his talk per PCTAP event recently. Its better this be done by next week, so our bets still have 2 to 3 weeks to tryout any lessons learned
- Get those licensed softwares, specially Chessbase
Definitely the Chinese, and top ASEAN countries have these as basic
- Another longshot, but NCFP provide Trainer(?), at least to ready IM Pau and NM Miciano and maybe Sevillano, I think they're the PHI top bets to try to battle it out. Miciano and Sevillano already got FEU support, but still inadequate. Maybe Jay's attention not that ficussed as he is NT Coach for Womens, most probably closely guiding WFM Shania...
|Apr-18-17|| ||pinoymaster77: For lesson / game reference, can get insights on the round 6 game vs veteran / elite Chess analyst GM Gustaffson. Some fans noticed he made an 'old line' in the Ruy but as early as move 5 or 6, our side seems to have not expected such line ?|
Aside from the game, any ideas / sharings on how to speed up reviews of the so-called 'main lines', can PM to me ...
Next event eh can only have 2 to 3 weeks prepa / review eh...
|May-15-17|| ||pinoymaster77: A Chess Journalist-friend's sharings on Paus rd3 win vs lower rated Chinese!|
