|Dec-01-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Taumbahay ba?
Sino sasali sa Challengers sa Subic, 1st event starts Dec 5, reg fee $50 or peso equivalent and top prize eh $1200.
Sa Open eh $7K top prize and I counted mga 17 GMs listed in the field, bannered by GM Wang Hao 2701. Siempre PHI delegation spearheaded by GMs Torre Antonio Gomez. GM Mac is even listed.
Kudos to the campaigns of IM Pau, GM-Elect Haridas (get to 2500) and WGM-Elect Frayna (IM or GM norms)
Nakalista din IMs Docena,Garcia and Dimakiling
|Dec-04-16|| ||gopi11: *Bump*|
|Dec-12-16|| ||pinoymaster77: AFGM to reinforce PHI contingent bukas sa next event ng PSC Puregold May more Pinoy GMs join him and may maka top 5|
|Dec-12-16|| ||spawn2: GM Torre is on his way to Subic.
Round 1 starts at 3 pm today. Goodluck to AFGM,IM Pau and to the rest of the Philippine players.
|Dec-13-16|| ||pinoymaster77: IM Pau with white vs SuperGM Demchenko, ok na draw or win dyan.|
AFGM Euge vs NM Abelgas Jr, should be good start.
Joining the PHI delegation are GMs Paragua & Laylo, IM candidate Nouri, the recently returned WIM Fronda, fresh from her 2nd place finish in the JAPFA Intl Womens event in Indonesia, as well as WIM Secopito and WFM San Diego.
PICC Challengers champion Marvin Miciano of FEU will try out the Open field this time.
|Dec-13-16|| ||spawn2: Pinoys did well sa 1st rd. GM Torre winning his 1st game. IMs Pau and Jem drew their games against higher rated opppnents.|
|Dec-13-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Good start with initial news that IM Pau drew with Russian SuperGM Demchenko and AFGM Euge won over Abelgas Jr as expected.|
But it turned out to be a GREAT start for the Pinoys as IM Dimaks scalped Russian GM Savchenko 2618 while IM Candidate Hamed Nouri axed GM Kovalev of Belarus. Huwag na nilang pakawalan yan! IM Jem drew with top seeded GM Wang Hao 2701 and GM-Elect Haridas drew with Georgian GM Pantsulaia 2607
Di nagpahuli Viet IM Tran by beating Georgian GM Mchedisvili, nagharvest ata GM norms dito
|Dec-21-16|| ||21blunders: News...

|Dec-30-16|| ||pinoymaster77: Happy New Year to GETS ETCF and chess friends !|
May 2017 be another exciting chess year for AFGM and team!
Reykjavic Open something to look forward to in April
|Dec-30-16|| ||spawn2: Happy New Year GM Eugene and friends.
As we close 2016, we salute GM Torre for his unwavering determination to uplift Philippine Chess. His herculean effort in the Baku Olympiad once again showed the international chess community that Filipinos can play chess and play it well.
We should also thank WGM Janelle Frayna for sharing the load of giving honor to the country by becoming its first WGM.
Although Philippine Team was not able to produce the result we were praying for, they should be recognized for their efforts. GMs Sadorra, Gomez, Barcenilla and IM Bersamina should also be congratulated for playing for flag and country.
IM Haridas winning effort in HK Open just before 2016 comes to an end should be a good sign for what is in store for Philippine Chess in 2017.
|Dec-31-16|| ||bubuli55: Happy New Year 2017 sa lahat! Specially to AFGM Eugene Torre and family. HNY2017!|
|Dec-31-16|| ||cro777: Best wishes in the the New Year 2017 to GM Eugenio Torre and to all of my chess friends!|
Keep good company, and you shall be of the number. This is my New Year's wish.
|Dec-31-16|| ||bubuli55: < cro777 > you're an hour into 2017 already. Happy New Year! Texas is still 6 hours away. Wish you the best!|
|Jan-03-17|| ||pinoymaster77: Ayun pala, I got wind of the Asian Zonals in Tagaytay pala sometime in Feb, and verified in FIDE Calendar as follows :|

Malamang yan overlap pa sa UAAP Chess(?), di puede sila Pau and other Masters in UAAP. So PHI will once again lean on veteran GMs led by AFGM JP Joey, and sana paglaruin ng NCFP sila GMs Ino and Mark
|Jan-03-17|| ||spawn2: So pwedeng 3 events si AFGM,
Asian Zonals - Feb
Karpov match - March
Reyjavik Open - April
|Jan-03-17|| ||gokusano: Will GM Eugene keeps competing? Or will he trade his playing jersey for a coaching tuxedo? He can be a top commodity internationally with no less than the great BF being one of his past client highlighting his portfolio . Combine this experience with his playing skill, he is a topnotch choice for every aspiring GMS.|
|Jan-04-17|| ||gopi11: Who's BF if you don't mind me asking?|
|Jan-04-17|| ||art00: Bobby Fischer|
|Jan-05-17|| ||pinoymaster77: I think with the commitments, AFGM will play this year|
A chess friend noted Asian Zonal does not include China and India in which case the seasoned GMs may be the Viets (Le and Ngoc as usual, Anh Khoi might join them) and the toughened up Mongols Possible din Zhang of Spore and kung active pa Indon Mega? Many strong youth all around
|Jan-20-17|| ||pinoymaster77: PHI GMs Ino Mac and Oli kitakits, and co-Champs pa GMs Ino and Mac sa Chesapeake Open. 9 events pala pinag champion ni GM Ino last year.|
Guess who's their idol?
Magkitakits din kaya sila with our locally based GMs sa Zonals 3.3 in Tagaytay?
