|Jan-02-15|| ||pinoymaster77: If only HALF of the TOP TEN are > 2500 which is minimum ELO for earning the GM title, and given the supposed 'ratings inflation' , meaning current 2500 player is probably a 2400 player during AFGM's prime time, eh our current (half of them) GMs eh hard up to get over the 2500 hump.|
Exception dyan AFGM since come Olympiad time eh his competitive juices flow again.
BUT isaalang alang din natin AFGM, ibig ba sabihin even beyond the 2016 Olympiad eh asahan pa sya maglaro, mga 66 yrs old na yata sya by the 2018 Olympiad.
Mga over 6 months na yung Tromso episode / exodus of young GMs, wala na excuse ang NCFP, they need to execute na a comprehensive program for our willing GMs and more youth players to become GMs and REMAIN competitive. Sa ngayon, kanya kanyang training pa din eh
|Jan-02-15|| ||kardopov: Good planner is what NCFP needs. Why not ask sugardom to fill the task?|
|Jan-03-15|| ||torrefan: why not just buy? A lot are now being sold at bookstores.|
|Jan-04-15|| ||kamagong24: Happy New Year GM Torre!|
|Jan-04-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Well, if he has the time, sugardom can be easily endorsed sa NCFP Director, for starters. Kaya lang next year na din yata NCFP elections, better to be off to a fresh start.|
|Jan-04-15|| ||geniokov: <PM77> Wala tayong magawa bro.budget ang problema aside from Elo inflation.Money is always at the end the main cause of it.Kita naman ni Tolentino yan eh!Nasaan na yang mga nasa Fide nakaupo? They only saving their own ass.Aba eh,alalayan naman nila ang Pinas.Si Campomanes eh hindi ganyan sa pinanggalingan niyang Federation.Nagsimula lang naging masama si Campo ng ipatigil niya ang Karpov-Kasparov WCC match,presuming Campomanes is "Karpomanes"(pro-Karpov).|
|Jan-04-15|| ||torrefan: Joining the NCFP is a thankless undertaking.
First, you will lose your money there.
Second, they will say you are corrupt. Money you spend for chess from your own pocket they will say was not yours anyway but fruits of corruption.
Third, they will easily forget the good that you've done and will only remember whatever wrong it is which happened while you were there.
Fourth, you will be mercilessly pilloried here and other social media sites.
|Jan-04-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Up to sugardom to discern and decide if will push thru. But starting at Director level is 'safer'|
Mga takaw pansin yung Presidente and Technical Director
|Jan-04-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Now, when news broke out on GM Wes' decision to turn fulltime pro and leave Webster scholarship and Susan/Paul, a glimmer of hope rekindled in my heart on a 'possible comeback' since a major obstacle is out of the way.|
But then again, eonomics/income-wise being with USCF may not be pre-requisite to play in the Sinquefield Cup (since they base invitiations on HIGH ELO, like those in 2800s level), but in the case of the US Open I guess its exclusive to USCF members. So I figured around 2016 due to mainly PRO considerations, being with USCF would be best suited.
But then maybe come 2018 onwards, there's brighter possibilities. It just gained headwinds today when Nil posted in FB Groups what he heard from Pres Pichay during the Phil Cup awarding, and Joey Villar aired the same hope in his Philstar article today.
BUT, NCFP cannot totally depend on that. In the cases of GMs Ino and JP, it can be seen they cannot thrive on the 'SELF STUDY' mode, they would need HELP to get to 2600+ level. Like help from foreign, proven Trainers and extensive intl tourneys exposure.
|Jan-04-15|| ||Iskubadayb: Kumusta po sa GETS lalo na kay bradidik. Silip lang. Kwentuhan tayo soon. :)|
|Jan-09-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Nice of Iskuba to drop in, and looking forward to the online (?) kuwentuhan soon|
|Jan-09-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Patalastas muna, the 'Mighty Mouse' has retired, but he's lucky guy getting multiple posts as TNT Mgr and Gilas Asst Coach, aside from helping pal Coach Jarin with San Beda.|
Search for the new 'puso' of Gilas is on. Meantime there was recent article that Coach Tab's team will have Junemar, Greg and Castro as part of the core to build on...
|Jan-11-15|| ||lakers4sho: I have a question/suggestion for those who are active in the local chess scene there in the Philippines. Why aren't alot of our local tournaments FIDE-rated? Is the fee simply too expensive? Our kids play a lot of chess and it would benefit their (potential) international careers to have them rated. I think that should be one of the first things NCFP should prioritize if it wants an overhaul of the chess system.|
|Jan-12-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Mukhang it was a matter of cost before, ang mga usual lang na creditted sa FIDE eh yung BOGM, plus of course yung intl events kung meron.|
Dapat sana maisama yung National Juniors and National Age Group, now na priority sport na chess, which I think translates to an additional (approx) budget of 5M per year. Depende na sa NCFP paano allocate.
|Jan-21-15|| ||Nf3em: hmmmm bihira sila sumilip todits ...|
|Jan-21-15|| ||spawn2: Musta bro Danny:)|
|Jan-21-15|| ||torrefan: Today is your birthday!
|Jan-21-15|| ||Nf3em: OK lang ako bro <Alex> ... musta na rin? :-)|
|Jan-22-15|| ||spawn2: Ok naman bro. Waiting for GM Torre's next tournament.|
|Jan-22-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Medyo pahinga nga muna Phil chess community with NCFP calendar for Jan, yung Natl Youth lang listed event for 3nd Jan. Nag rest muna sa sunod sunod na chess events nung Dec. We may see may gradual buildup, specially towards the summer.|
|Jan-26-15|| ||spawn2: <pm77>
Yup, medyo slow first two (2) months of 2015 for our local GMs. Checking NCFP calendar, am guessing they will play in the Asian Zonal 3.3 and HD Bank to be held one after the other in Vietnam this March.
|Jan-28-15|| ||pinoymaster77: spawn2,
Malamang nga ganun na nga, may time sana for prepa, at least 3 months pero may iba ding life activities mga players natin
|Jan-28-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Have been reading warnings of 'massive snowstorm' hitting USA's East Coast.|
Seems CNN is pooh poohing it?
Also saw Dari's posted pics in FB of the snow. Dun din yata GM Mac's family/clan.
Si bubuli55 sa Texas area naman, and saan ba state ni Iskuba ?
|Jan-29-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Nahihirapan recently to access this forum, before I just have to search 'the chess games of...(name of player).|
Anyway, in trying to find alternative links eh chanced upon this previous article back in 2013. Since then, for the 6 key people, RIP na si Sir Cesar.
And some chess-in-schools / outreach has been done...
"The Chess Center will be given the task of identifying new and fresh talents while the Foundation will be given the job of polishing them and raising the needed funds for the purpose.
“We will be assisting the NCFP in organizing tournaments in the countryside, hold clinics and seminars with FIDE (International Chess Federation) instructors as resource persons,” Torre, who learned the rudiments of the sport from his namesake grandfather at age five, said by way of spelling out the program.
“I would just like to emphasize that not all of our energy will be spent on producing world-beaters,” the many-time Philippine and Asian champion clarified. “One other area we would like our attention to focus on is to develop players who will be good on the chess boards and, likewise, in leading productive lives.
“Besides producing a Filipino world champion, my other obsession really is to produce players na ang magagaling nilang kaalaman sa paglalaro ay, mai-apply nila sa kani-kanilang buhay towards becoming productive assets to Philippine society,” said Torre, who earned his first and second GM noms in a short but successful one year campaign in 1974."
