  wordfunph: <epistle> harhakhar!

incredible story..

last week while browsing the shift rotation of our factory employees, i discovered one named "Rogelio Antonio" assigned on day shift. Ohhh ohhhhh... namesake of GM Joey whewww!

this morning during break while puffing my red marlboro, i chanced to meet this guy named "Rogelio Antonio".

wordfunph: Kapangalan mo pala si Grandmaster Rogelio Antonio kaso merong Jr. siya.

Rogelio Antonio: Sir, meron din pong Jr. ang pangalan ko.

<kamuntik na ako malaglag sa upuan ko ayayayayyy!>

GM Rogelio Antonio Jr., fight!

The Most Active GM In History?
FM MikeKlein on 11/4/15, 8:15 AM.

When it comes to titled players on, one man has climbed Mt. Everest. GM Rogelio Antonio Jr., 53, better known as "gmjoey1," has now played more than 100,000 games over six years. is likely his browser's homepage by now! That is surely a record among all grandmasters who frequent the site, and is quite possibly the most games played by any of the 13 million members. His name is so synonymous with live chess that he has his own fan club despite never participating in any "official" events like Titled Tuesdays or Death Matches.

One blogger explained his popularity plainly: "It's simple, it's because he's online a lot. We can easily get into his game from the top game match. His fans even said, 'Some say he doesn't sleep,' or, 'I never get into live chess without find Joey playing.'

Jun-28-16  Pulo y Gata: Congratulations!
Jul-20-16  smurph: Make that 115400 games

Aug-30-16  Birthday Boy: Really nice to him back in the olympiad.
Aug-30-16  kamagong24: Antonio gives up slot in World Chess Olympiad

sayang :(

Aug-30-16  gokusano: With updates like this, it is not the remotest that chessfans will think there is an ongoing animosity between NCFP and GM Joey. Mine is that GM Joey resented the seeding procedure. It's just a wild guess and just my opinion. Pero sayang, Joey is really a strong player and could help propel team Philippines to a creditable finish. Saw his post in facebook echoing his sentiment.
Aug-31-16  kamagong24: if pinoy chess players worthy of representing the country are not happy, then, there really is something wrong with people running the NCFP
Aug-31-16  epistle: or with the players...
Nov-18-17  bubuli55: Good news. GM Antonio won in last round at the World Seniors +55. He finished second.

Congrats! GM Antonio.

Nov-19-17  geniokov: The only " Junior" in a Seniors event! Congrats anyway.
Apr-11-18  Nina Myers: Are you proud of this game R Antonio vs A Reprintsev, 2017, Mr. <Rogelio Antonio Jr>?

That's just plain disgraceful.

Apr-12-18  Pulo y Gata: "Twas played in the World Seniors. It is the tournament where players take advantage of their opponents' senior moments. So this was a perfectly legit game
Apr-12-18  Nina Myers: <Pulo y Gata>

It is the tournament where <coward> players take advantage of their opponents' senior moments.

Fixed it for you.

Apr-12-18  Nina Myers: * or <dishonourable> or <chicken-hearted>, your choice.
Apr-13-18  Pulo y Gata: It does not matter what kind of players they are. The point of the tournament is to take advantage of senior moments. Whether the one taking advantage is honourable or dishonourable is not material.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Senior? He was only 58.
Apr-13-18  Pulo y Gata: The age does not matter. It was the World Seniors championship. It is where the senior moments are taken advantage of as the name of the tournament implies
