|Jul-12-16|| ||spawn2: For the coming Baku Olympiad, Team Philippines will need to perform much better compared to its 2014 performance.
Dapat magpakitang gilas sa new administration to show that chess is worth supporting.|
The team will need the following:
> ample time to prepare
> venue conducive for training
> support from computer experts
(calling on Mr. Bang and IM Nolts)
> Right food and exercise
> Develop camaraderie amongst coaches,
team captain and players
Last but not the least, personal interest should be set aside and focus on bringing honor to the country by performing well and representing the country in a gentleman manner on and off the board.
Am sure, recognition and the corresponding benefits will follow.
|Jul-13-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Sa Children of Asia, it was a bit unexpected since sa local tourneys di naman eye popping but 14-yr old Eduard Buenavista of Baguio got the silver of steeplechase event, he is the son of multi-medalled Eduardo Buenavista. A sprinter and swimmer also got bronze medals.|
For Rio Olympians, new PSC Chairman Butch Ramirez arranged for a courtesy call with Pres Digong on Monday for the 6 athletes from taekwondo, weightlifting, athletics, golf and table tennis who are still in PHI, then they fly off to Rio on the 23rd.
Sana ma arrange din ni NCFP Pres Pichay and PSC Chair Ramirez na mag courtesy call din ang 2 Olympiad teams natin before they leave for Baku. Pareho nga pala silang Butch ano
|Jul-13-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Sa ongoing Asian Schools sa Iran, kulany lang sa press links ang NCFP. Dun sa rapid eh am sure may gold since Kylen Mordido topped her group with 7/7, WFM Doroy was solo 2nd (silver?) and Den Quizon was in triple tie at the top.|
Sa ongoing standard event eh CM Pen Pangilinan in good position with 4.5/5. Siempre madami Iranians as hosts pero ang dami nilang players nasa top, which means they have also prepared and have strong players.
There has been differing contentions whether chess originated in India or Persia (modern day Iran), what do the chess historians say?
|Jul-17-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Sa pagtingin sa chess results eh heto na detect na medallists sa recently concluded Asian Schools in Iran :|
Golds - WFM Allaney Doroy G17, CM Pen Pangilinan O15, Daren Dela Cruz G9
Silver - Gadut G7
Gold - Kylen Mordido G15
Silver - WFM Doroy G17
Bronze - Den Quizon O13
Golds - WFM Doroy G17, Quizon O13
Silver - Mordido G15
WFM Allaney Doroy of NU was most bemedalled with 2 golds and 1 silver. She also qualified to the recent NCC Finals / WBOGM, the youngest at about 15 or 16 yrs old. Watchout for her development.
CM Pen Pangilinan is back-to-back Champs daw sa standard event in Asian Youth.
Yun nga ang kulang sa media write-ups. Active naman sa youth chess, like aside from this Asian Youth eh yung Children of Asia in Russia where Miciano played. Some players being sent to the East Asia Youth in Korea in early Aug. And 4 players reportedly being sent to the World Jrs in early Aug, including IM Pau, Natl Jr champ Paul and WIM Frayna.
|Jul-18-16|| ||pinoymaster77: It's a go for Davao hosting of 2019 SEAG. Still a good 3 years, enough to ready some youth which I hope NCFP would take the opportunity. Open up for events like ASEAN Chess, Transfer (tandem) chess, Random chess, and if there's a Pinoy concocted chess.|
Miciano hails from Davao, and maybe some VisMin players can also play.
Why not Games of the Generals, it was invented by a Pinoy, Mr. Pasolas
|Jul-18-16|| ||spawn2: <pm77>
Its good to know that IM Pau will have a shot at the World Jrs crown.
His participation in the coming WJ will also prepare him for the Baku Olympiad.
|Jul-19-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Yes, spawn2, due to computer age and usually the young have the time to do all those chess studies, the World Juniors has been tougher over the years with young GMs in play. I remember GM Ipatov became a Champ while the talented GM Papp was a regular Juniors player, and now doing well in the intl circuit.|
IM Pau is really not yet coming in to the World Jrs fully equipped with the needed logistics and support pero let's see, occasionally we see 'in the zone' play like what happened to IM Hari in a Dubai Open I think that was last year.
Just modest / doable goals as my wishlist is a 2nd GM norm this year, then next year the final GM norm and reach 2500 rating.
|Jul-19-16|| ||pinoymaster77: US Chess future is bright, dun sa 2015 US Championships may young GM si Samuel Sevian of Armenian descent, then there's also the youngster Troff.
Tapos may talented na Taiwanese and Chinese descent like former US Jr champ na GM na daw na si Jeffrey Xiong, then a youngster who created a stir recently in getting GM scalps eh IM Li Ruifeng. Then there's Awonder Liang. Current US Jrs champ daw eh Akshat Chandra.|
Maybe in 10 to 12 years' time, this current youth brigade will be led by GM Shankland in future US Olympiad teams?
Kung dream match kaya US vs PHI, sila Xiong Ruifeng Liang Chandra vs Bersamina Docena Miciano Pangilinan - what a rumble OTB !
|Jul-21-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Magnus pala eh popular name in Norway, and royal name pa|
|Jul-24-16|| ||pinoymaster77: The Australian team to Baku Olympiad. Maybe Arianne has called it quits on Olympiad duty?|
Parang di na pareho Aussie / NZ chess since the times of Ian Rogers and Murray Chandler?
Cant see link yet for initial submitted names by the various Countries / Federations?
|Jul-24-16|| ||Virgil A: Hopefully the NCFP will name the Phil team soon. The longer the preparation of the players the better. Matagal ko nang hinihintay ang official assignment nila AFGM, Paulo at Julio. |
1. GM Julio Sadorra - highest rated Filipino presently. Widely known in the media he will be named to the team.
2. GM Rogelio Antonio - BOGM champion.
3. GM Eugene Torre - in two words. Mr. Olympiad.
4. IM Paulo Bersamina - BOGM second. In great form. Bullish.
5. GM JP Gomez - very strong team player.
|Jul-24-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Virgil,
Maybe we can say 60 to 80% firm na yung players na listed mo. Per earlier article, GM JP has begged off due to expected delivery by the wife during Olympiad time. We've heard GM Banjo would be part of the team, though we have to wait for the NCFP announcement.
For the Womens, ang TOP 5 sa NCC Finals eh Women Masters Frayna, Fronda, Bernales, Perena-Secopito, Suede. Its just a question if they will still tap WIM Camacho. Womens Coach would be GM Jayson
|Jul-25-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Its now official, a former chess varsity player (Ateneo) Sen Koko Pimentel is voted as Senate President! And administering the oath is neophyte Sen Manny who's also a staunch chess sponsor and enthusiast !|
Though understandably there are many many pressing NATIONAL matters and as outlined in Senate Pres Koko's essential elements (priorities), there's no sports / chess, eh puede na pasingit singit sa busy skeds na ma mention siguro ang chess programs
2 Mindanaoans heading the Senate and the House (Davao's P.Alvarez), NCFP Pres Pichay is also Mindanaoan anyway, and would have access to the current political inner circles
|Jul-25-16|| ||Pulo y Gata: <neophyte Sen Manny who's also a staunch chess sponsor and enthusiast> our Senate has come to this|
|Jul-25-16|| ||epistle: With fellow Mindanaoans ruling the nation, expect His Excellency, President Prospero Pichay to be restored to his former glory.|
|Jul-25-16|| ||wordfunph: RP Team to Baku Olympiad
<Team Philippines is also bannered by Grand Master (GM) Eugenio Torre, GM Julio Sadorra, GM Rogelio Barcenilla, International master Paolo Bersamina, and GM Darwin Laylo.>
|Jul-25-16|| ||gokusano: Where is joey a.?|
|Jul-25-16|| ||spawn2: My board assignments
Bd 1 Torre
Bd 2 Sadorra
Bd 3 Barcenilla
Bd 4 Laylo
Bd 5 Bersamina
Bds 1 and 2 can be interchanged
|Jul-25-16|| ||pinoymaster77: PYG,
Pacman is actually popular among chess masters / non maaters due to sponsorship of previous Asian continental and the 2 million peso random chess event in GenSan last Dec and Jan na dinayo pa ng NCR.
Believe it or not, he's also the bet of some chess friends for NCFP prexy.
Saka mas maigi na din siguro maging Federal setup na by 2022 at balak tumakbo, and baka daw suwertihin si Tito Sotto as the 'ceremonial President' in that Federal setup (ala France)
|Jul-25-16|| ||Pulo y Gata: The question of whether Pacquiao is good for the country as a senator is not related to chess at all. His performance at the House of Representatives speaks for itself, but he won simply because he is famous - not because he can craft good laws for the land.|
|Jul-25-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Mag seryoso na daw sya sa Senate attendance, pero baka mag leave for 1 fight pa. Let's see|
|Jul-25-16|| ||Virgil A: Good news pasok ang tatlong sinusubaybayan kong players. :)|
Congratz GM Eugene. Congratz! Congratz! Congratz!!
|Jul-25-16|| ||pinoymaster77: That calls for another get together when Virgil next visits PHI|
|Jul-25-16|| ||Virgil A: PM77. I really hope so. I feel very good about this team. You just know every player on this team feels very proud to represent our country. They will give their max effort. I know GM Julio has been training hard for this one. IM Paulo has the heart of a lion. He played well in last Olympiad. And AFGM Eugene, more than his superb game, what else can we say? Team-player, Leadership, Experience, Passion, INTEGRITY.|
|Jul-26-16|| ||pinoymaster77: VirgilA,
You got it RIGHT. This team has cohesion and we can be sure they will do their best for the country
