|Feb-15-17|| ||Iskubadayd: hapibalintayms sa yo at kay misis. medyo late.|
|Feb-15-17|| ||pinoymaster77: Congratulations! I could not access the Philstar article where AFGM had a good pic with 'Executive' awardee Philip Juico of the PATAFA, but here's also a great write-up in the Tribune earlier|
|Feb-16-17|| ||Nf3em: Sir <Isku> hisashiburi desu ne.|
|Feb-18-17|| ||kardopov: Sad note regarding Philippine rating. Only one teener in the top 20 and the next youngster is turning 22 in 11th position.|
|Feb-20-17|| ||Nf3em: Maybe its time for a new body governing Philippine Chess. Bulok na bulok na ang sistema.|
|Feb-22-17|| ||pinoymaster77: How time flies, mukhang bukas na ata opening ng Zonals 3.3? No word yet whether UAAP adjusted their sked yet, in order for the Master-players can be able to play.|
Mandate daw ng NCFP/PSC na national pool athletes play in this event....
|Feb-23-17|| ||bubuli55: From a Bobby Ang article on Business World :
< That is a good question. Why is Wesley So not an awardee? He is, after all, ranked no. 2 in the chess world right now, something which no other Filipino has ever done. Even GM Eugene at his peak in the early ’80s only reached no. 17. >
My opinion is that the last sentence is probably not necessary.
|Feb-24-17|| ||Pulo y Gata: Ang seems ignorant also of the reasons why he can't be honoured as an awardee|
|Feb-24-17|| ||spawn2: If there are no new developments since my last conversion with GM Torre, he will not play in the Zonals but will act as coach of the Philippine contingent. His next tounaments will be the HD Bank in Vietnam and Reyjavik Open in Iceland.|
|Feb-24-17|| ||Nf3em: I agree sir <bubz>.|
|Feb-25-17|| ||spawn2: Ngayon ko lang napansin, should have been "last conversation, instead of last conversion". |
Anyways, field in the Zonal is not as strong, the local players have higher chances of making it to the World Cup.
|Feb-28-17|| ||Nf3em: Haha pards <spawn2>, no need to correct yourself. Musta?|
Ako :( walang OTB chess kc super-busy sa work -- 1 power plant in the commissioning stage, 4 plants at its peak of construction activities, 1 plant still civil/building works and 3 others just started site preparation and piling works.
|Mar-03-17|| ||spawn2: Oks lang bro Danny. Yup work na muna bago chess😀|
|Mar-05-17|| ||spawn2: 7th HD Bank 2017 in Vietnam will commence on March 11.|
Tough field with the likes of GMs Wei Yi,Le Quang Liem, Bu Ziangzhi, Cheparinov and Wang Hao composing the top 5 in terms of rating. While the Philippines will be represented by GMs Gomez, Torre, Antonio, Laylo, IM Dimakiling.
Also playing for the country is Hamed Nouri, Narquingden Reyes and lo and behold AGM Ed Gatus: )
|Mar-06-17|| ||pinoymaster77: Im not able to replay yet more PGNs of games, but maybe the resident Masters/analysts here and cro777 / Iskubadayb can help comment on a reknowned sportswriter's observations :|
IM-Elect Yeoh (now earned 2nd GM norm) didn't really play anything special or spectacular but was positionally more solid. Seems the Pinoy Masters' styles eh more of 'wait and see' na? But seems that is not the Pinoys' style of play so could it be they are the ones who became impatient and committed the mistakes?
FYI, with PHI as host, those who qualified were Malaysian youngster IM-Elect Yeoh Li Tian and veteran Viet GM Ngoc Truongson. Qualifying sa Womens are 2 Viet WGMs, Nguyan and Hoang. Viets cornered 3 out of the 4 qualifying slots
|Mar-07-17|| ||Nf3em: The 17th BCC Open and the BCC Challenger 2017 will take place at the Regent Cha-am Beach Resort, 8–16 April 2017.|
Di rin pwede sumali kahit sa challenger kasi 8th ang simula ng tourney eh ang holiday namin 13th pa simula. hayzzzttttttt.
|Mar-09-17|| ||Nf3em: Uuwi na lang ako sa long holiday, 5 days din. ;-)|
|Mar-09-17|| ||spawn2: 2017 HD Cup in Vietnam will start tomorrow. Hope GM Torre can reignite his Baku form.|
|Mar-10-17|| ||Nf3em: May aabangan sa Follow Chess Apps.
Go go go AFGM, good luck!
|Mar-11-17|| ||spawn2: Bukas pa pala start ng rd 1 ng HDBank at 10 am. Opening pa lang pala this afternoon.|
|Mar-11-17|| ||gokusano: Hoping sir eugene is in fine form and replicate his olymp performance|
|Mar-11-17|| ||pinoymaster77: Rd1 pairings out, our GMs since nasa upper half eh will meet lower rated H.Nouri will play a GM while Dar will battle with Gatus|
|Mar-16-17|| ||Nf3em: Sumali ba si AFGM sa HDBank tourney? Parang wala ako nakikita games niya sa follow chess.|
|Mar-17-17|| ||spawn2: Yes bro Danny. Check mo sa chessresult.com and you will see pgn of all the games sa HDBank.|
Either not in form Genius or he is experimenting sa HD Bank. Hopefully sa Reyjavik mas solid ang performance.
|Mar-19-17|| ||Nf3em: Ah OK bro <Alex>, check ko na lang dun.|
Baka limited lang yung naka-live sa follow chess.
