NM EMPERADO vs NM NOURI
IM BERSAMINA vs GM TORRE
|Jun-21-16|| ||pinoymaster77: AFGM at age 64 kaya pa, aabot ba age 65 by Olympiad time sa Baku?|
Medyo double edged sword yun na we need active players na Seniors sa national teams natin, it also mean the player development in our shores eh well below expectations, and we've even lost many GMs to overseas migration.
Nung NCC Semis for various reasons wala IMs Dimakiling Dableo Nava Garcia Abelgas.
Kelangan na talaga yung mga Ajedrez Caballeros na Grand Prix leaders eh sumali na sa next NCC Elims cycle next year, your country needs you na!
|Jun-21-16|| ||Pulo y Gata: Very nice positional gem by GM Torre in round 1: http://www.chess-results.com/partie....|
|Jun-21-16|| ||Pulo y Gata: But this one is just unbelievable: http://www.chess-results.com/partie....|
|Jun-21-16|| ||spawn2: <Pulo>
Its been a while (more than 2 years if my memory serves me right) since GM Torre used the Alekhine Def.
|Jun-21-16|| ||spawn2: Inspired play by IM Garma vs GM elect Pascua in rd 1!|
|Jun-21-16|| ||spawn2: IM Bersamina won a nice game vs FM Reyes in rd 1. 4 queens on the board!|
|Jun-21-16|| ||spawn2: Gotel blundering badly against GM Gonzales in rd 2. Hanging a knight after 5 moves in the opening.|
|Jun-21-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Its good somebody's writing regularly on the chess events. Pero some corrections for Mr. Ed, AFGM not yet in the past, he is still part of the present.|
And 64 na, not 61 pero ok lang kung pinapabata.
|Jun-22-16|| ||Pulo y Gata: The Caballeros Guapos are certainly the best age-for-age players in the land right now.|
|Jun-22-16|| ||wordfunph: umariba na si Alamat..
3.0 = Torre, Gonzales, Garma
2.5 = Bersamina, Miciano, Antonio
2.0 = Gomez, Laylo, Nouri
1.5 = Pascua, Barcenilla, Reyes
1.0 = Gotel
0.0 = Emperado
|Jun-23-16|| ||spawn2: Results for rd 5 is quite delayed. Rd 6 has already started. |
The "evergreen" GM Torre vs the "resurgent" IM Chito Garma is the game to watch in rd 6.
|Jun-23-16|| ||pinoymaster77: IM Pau softened up IM Garma by inflicting his 1st loss, while drawn ang games nila GMs Euge and Jay kaya sila ang 3-way tie with 3.5 / 5|
Na-revise daw sked, 1 game today then 2 games tomorrow, sayans
|Jun-23-16|| ||pinoymaster77: As per Mr Ed's write-up on round 3 eh 'masterpiece' daw win ni gmjoey over NM Emperado in 32 moves of a Center Counter game. Can we get the opinion or analyses from epistle / PYG and cro777 please ?|
|Jun-23-16|| ||cro777: 2016 NATIONAL CHESS CHAMPIONSHIPS GRAND FINAL BATTLE OF GRANDMASTERS (Men's Division)|
Antonio, Rogelio Jr (2474) – Emperado, Emmanuel (2309)
(PSC Athletes' Dining Hall, Manila, Round 3, 21.06.2016)
Center Counter (Scandinavian Defence), Gubinsky-Melts Variation (3…Qd6). Antonio used a "one-time surprise weapon" 4.Ne4!?
1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nc3 Qd6
click for larger view
4.Ne4!? Objectively, this attack doesn't bring White anything (4…Qe6 5.Qe2 Nf6). But it can be used as a one-time surprise weapon against a weaker opponent aimed at avoiding his preparation. White cannot hope for an opening advantage without 4.d4, as Antonio had played in the National Championship 2010.
4…Qg6 <This is a novelty> 5.Ng3 e5 6.Nf3 Nc6 7.Bd3 Qd6 8.O-O Bd7 9.Re1 O-O-O 10.b3 f6 11.Bb2 Kb8 12.Ne4 Qe7 13.Bc4 Bg4 14.h3 Bh5 15.Ng3 Bf7 16.Bb5 Qc5 17.c4 Nge7 18.Ne4 Qb6 19.a4 Nf5 20.Bc3 Ncd4 21.a5 Qe6 22.g4 Nxf3+ 23.Qxf3 Nd4 24.Bxd4 Rxd4 25.a6

The critical position.
25…c6? <This was a key mistake (seriously weakening the king's position). The correct move was 25…Qb6. After 26.axb7 Black can play 26…a5 followed by …Bb4 (if 27.g5 then 27…Be7). >
26.axb7 cxb5?? <Black blundered. This bishop is poisoned. White can now elegantly win with a rook sacrifice.>
27.Rxa7 Qc6 28.Nc5 Bxc5 29.Qxc6 Bxa7 30.Ra1 Rhd8 31.Rxa7 Kxa7 32.Qc8 1-0
A fine attacking play by Antonio. According to journalist Ignacio Dee this game "deserves to be in an anthology of Philippine chess brilliancies".
|Jun-23-16|| ||spawn2: Rd 6 game of Torre vs Garma should be on-going by now. Based on chessgames.com
data base, the two played 3 games with GM Torre winning 2 and drawing 1. He played black in all three (3) games.|
Today, Asia's 1st GM will handle the white army.
|Jun-23-16|| ||Pulo y Gata: Thanks, cro777.
The games aren't uploaded anymore on chess-results?
|Jun-23-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Maraming salamat sa pagpapaunlak ni cro777, tuned in pala sya dito sa AFGM page !|
So, sa move 25 pala critical position and it was a costly mistake b NM Emperado, and downhill from there. Well, if it also comes from Iggy Dee then this game will be considered as for brilliancy play then.
Wonder what are the thoughts also of Attorney and pet opening din ni GM Dar etong Center Counter / Scandinavian
Parang may 'nerves' mga first timers NMs Emperado and Gotel, while 15-yr old Miciano was hanging on better with a good start in the 1st 4 games, before getting a lesson from GM Banjo.
|Jun-23-16|| ||pinoymaster77: On GM Jay's play, anyone has done thru his PGNs and overall commentary. Medyo na missout in the Journal article na he was a sudden replacement in the 2014 Olympiad team in Norway, when GM Banjo made a belated notice that he couldn't make it to Norway, eh mag start na Olympiad and andun na team members who flew in from the Phils. Nagustuhan na yata ni GM Jay kaya naging mas active...|
|Jun-23-16|| ||spawn2: BOGM's Rds 4 & 5 games are now available for review in chessresults.com|
|Jun-25-16|| ||spawn2: After 9 rds of chess, IM Bersamina, GM Gomez, GM Gonzales and GM Torre are tied with 6 pts across their names. 4 rds to go!|
|Jun-25-16|| ||Nf3em: Good luck AFGM, 1 more Olympiad!|
