|Nov-18-15|| ||pinoymaster77: IM Pimentel is in much better form at the PSC / Puregold event than past intl outings. He was ok in the 1st 5 rounds vs puro GMs, before being stopped in rd5, with 3/5 and TPR of 2580 and meeting na 5 GMs from 4 Feds, eh he still has a decent shot at a GM norm.|
Best placed Pinoys with 3.5pts are GMs Dar and Euge, saka IM Dimaks. All the best to the Pinoy delegation !
|Nov-18-15|| ||MissScarlett: Eugene: <Maybe, Bobby, God will touch their hearts...>|
Bobby: <Eugene, these are Jews...>
|Nov-19-15|| ||kamagong24: keep inspiring GM Torre!|
|Nov-19-15|| ||gokusano: Hmm... sabi ni bitterchess mga grannymasters daw. Torre is the epitome of the true Filipino Warrior. Alongside Joey Antonio, they have served the country for more than 3 long decades. Sila dapat ang binibigyan ng parangal at incentives. Ni hindi yata sila nakatikim ng 40k premium allotment for class A athlete. Tapos meron pang insulto na galing ke bitterchess, kakampi ni kamagong24. At least hindi nilait ni kama si afgm. Saludo para kay afgm.|
|Nov-19-15|| ||kamagong24: @gokudsano hello fan :P|
|Nov-19-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Sa chess ba, sino national coaches? Puedeng result area nila ilang youth players napakuha nila ng norm, and also ELO gain|
|Nov-19-15|| ||gokusano: Helo kamasutra. Sakaling nilait mo si afgm makakatikim ka sa akin. Sino ba ang fan sa atin? Ikaw ang banggit ng banggit sa akin eh. Me backyard tournament akong sasalihan. Gusto mo manood?|
|Nov-19-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Runaway solo leader na GM Savchenko with perfect 6wins! Top Pinoy pacers pa
din GMs Dar and AFGM Euge with 4pts.
Looking good pa din IM Pimentel with 3.5 pts, +45 so far and TPR 2560. Baka makuha pa sa puntos based on strength of opposition, so far maharap nya eh 6GMs and an IM
|Nov-19-15|| ||kamagong24: puro kalaswaan talaga nasa isip mo gokusano, may respeto ako sa page ni idol, di ako makikipag away dito, saang bakuran ba yan?|
|Nov-19-15|| ||gokusano: Ok peace tayo dito dahil parehong supporter tayo ni afgm.|
|Nov-19-15|| ||spawn2: Tomorrow will be a slambang affair vs GM Lu Shanglei of China.|
GV lang tayo mga igan..
|Nov-19-15|| ||gokusano: Mabigat ang laban. A rising star from the land of Tsina against AFGM. Laban lang bosing Eugene. Kahit anong mangyari, ikaw pa rin ang paborito ng bayan, ang hero ng mga kabataan. Good vibes lang.|
|Nov-20-15|| ||gokusano: Sad news, afgm bows to lumpiang shanghai. Bawi sa next round, go bosing eugene!|
|Nov-20-15|| ||dunkenchess: payt batch.|
|Nov-20-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Runaway winner na red hot GM Savchenko. Fight for 2nd place onwards and GM Dar is highest placed Pinoy, 2 rounds to go!|
Still trying to look at the positives, para puede pa sanang maka move forward in the midst of the quagmire na andun sa ngayon ang Philippine chess
|Nov-20-15|| ||gokusano: Kudos to the Filipino players. Despite all the drama, they are there fighting for the Philippine flag. Hopefully GM Dar can cop the 2nd place award. Go DARWIN!|
|Nov-21-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Sure winner na GM Savchenko
Lone bright note GM Dar still in TOP 5, and if the last game would be drawn eh maka TOP 5 finish
IM Pimentel's norm campaign fizzled out
Jerad may come out again as top placed Pinoy youth player
|Nov-21-15|| ||Pulo y Gata: Everytime there's an intl chess tournament, we can look at it as the local bets giving the intl competition a partida. Partida in materials and support, maybe. |
A showcase of grit and never-say-die attitude. Viva, Filipinas!
|Nov-21-15|| ||pinoymaster77: GM Dar finished 4th, indeed in the TOP 5.
Now that its over, its hard to deny something's wrong when our top 3 rated young GMs (Oli JP and Ino) with around 2500+ rating were not able to play in both intl events.
The future looks hazy, lets watchout for the next moves of PSC / NCFP and the players
|Nov-23-15|| ||spawn2: Next year will be an Olympiad year..|

|Nov-28-15|| ||Virgil A: < Pulo y Gata: > <Going by this championship Philippine chess is in poor shape. We have our more prestigious tournament being played in a dining hall with many of the participants just going through the motions.
There is no private sector support and nothing is being done about stirring up interest in the grassroots level. >|
Iskubz brought up this issue sometime 5 years ago. Iskubz mentioned about the gains of Pocamps' administration and the Philippine standings on intl scene. And that the way to go about continuing development of chess is through the grassroots level and the revival of national competition. I believe Congressman Pichay must have picked up on that because it seemed like there were more local tournaments right after that. I don't know.
Now we see Bersamina, Turqueza, Frayna and several other youngsters getting into the picture.
Maybe that issue being brought up again would inject more life to the game again.
|Nov-28-15|| ||gokusano: A new set of officers who have the vigor and zest to promote chess is more likely the answer. Pichay has lost the enthusiasm after that wesley thing and the unsuccessful fide candidacy. I give the man some credit because of his achievements in making chess a priority sport, and creating more grandmasters under his rein in the early part of his administration. As for now? I just don't know how to describe him.|
|Nov-28-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Cannot compare to Pocamps' time, he's rare and 1 in a million, saka iba political savvy nya and connections, pati sa mga Presidente ng nations nakilaro.|
Pichay's time much better than Estimo's time sa pagkakaalam ko, di hamak na mas madaming nagging tournaments specially nung nasa poder nung GMA time.
Depende pa din siguro kung makabalik si Pichay sa Kongreso, can have more links / network again.
As of now, I don't see somebody na viable candidate eh. I don't know who's the candidate of Bambol / Toti group and si Doc Perez eh more for formality yata para may kalaban? AFGM already has ETCF and PCTAP which are active, aside from handling Pacman events. Kap Norli nawalan na din ng gana on previous plans.
Who else is out there?
|Nov-29-15|| ||SugarDom: Kap Norli had a very simple plan.
Win the NCFP presidency and then hand over the management and sponsorhip of Philippine chess to MVP.
Nawalan na ng gana kasi maraming Ingrates sa chess, pupunta lang sa America.
