|Apr-14-15|| ||spawn2: GM Barbosa vs GM Wang Hao in rd 5.
The schedule of rds in the Bangkok Open 2015 is a little friendly to GM Torre with only rds 2 and 3 happening on the same day. It gives GM Torre time to rest and prepare.
It is possible that rds 6 and 7 will be on the same day but it will be back to one rd/day for the last two rounds.
|Apr-15-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Magaganda puntos mga Pinoys after 5 rounds tho karamihan galing sa baba vs lower rated opponents, eh pangpuntos yun but not for good TPR. IM Dimaks has 4.5 while IM Paulo, GM Oli, AFGM, GM Dar have 4pts.|
Mya sa rd6, babangga IM Dimaks vs GM Socko 2628 and IM Pau vs GM Rasmussen 2507, nasa top 6 boards sila and makasama sa chessbomb mamaya.
As spawn2 pointed out, abot na sa 2400 live rating si Pau which is highest so far, now onto 2450 as next milestone
|Apr-16-15|| ||spawn2: GM Eugene won his 5th rd game against Ravi Teja of India (2405) with the black pieces. He is now sharing pole position with 11 others.|
His game against GM Ganguly (2619) should be one of the featured games tomorrow in chessbomb.
|Apr-16-15|| ||pinoymaster77: IM Pau naman vs GM Oli.
GO AFGM and IM Pau !
|Apr-16-15|| ||spawn2: Chessbookie Is now entertaining bets for the Torre vs Ganguly. Todo na bet kahid dehado sa rating:)|
|Apr-16-15|| ||bubuli55: 200 Lang ang nakayanan ko :)
|Apr-16-15|| ||spawn2: Thanks to chessgames.com admin for including the Torre vs Ganguly in chessbookie.|
|Apr-17-15|| ||spawn2: London is it but achieved through a different move order.|
|Apr-17-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Even pa lang :
Torre, Eugenio (PHI) - Ganguly, Surya Shekhar (IND)
15th Bangkok Chess Open 2015 round 07
1. d4 Nf6 2. Nf3 g6 3. Nc3 d5 4. Bf4 Bg7 5. e3 O-O 6. Be2 c5 7. O-O cxd4 8. exd4 Nc6 9. Ne5 Bf5 10. Re1 Rc8 11. Bf3 Re8 12. Re2 *
SF : -0.23 kanina mga +0.2
|Apr-17-15|| ||spawn2: GM Torre made time control. Both are given extra 30 mins thinking time. If GM Genius finds Nc1, engine eval goes 1.22|
|Apr-17-15|| ||spawn2: Torre vs Ganguly is a draw..Good game
|Apr-17-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Sa Bangkok Open round 7 eh draws sila AFGM Torre and IM Paulo.|
Sa Gashimov Memorial eh lamang former WC Anand over current WC Carlsen! Ma-convert kaya, o sana? GM Wes may slight advantage over GM Giri
|Apr-17-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Round 8 / penultimate round bakbakans !
7 13 GM Barbosa Oliver 2489 5 5½ GM Torre Eugenio 2460 18
8 25 IM Himanshu Sharma 2416 5 5 GM Gomez John Paul 2520 9
9 15 GM Kunte Abhijit 2477 5 5 IM Bersamina Paulo 2390 34
10 17 IM Sunilduth Lyna Narayanan 2464 5 5 WIM Frayna Janelle Mae 2167 85
|Apr-17-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Malaki na pala lamang GM Wes k GM Giri, sana ma convert na for first ever win vs 1 of main nemesis...|
|Apr-17-15|| ||allan.dinglasan: Nalo ako sa chessbookie, my first win, draw between torre and Ganguly|
|Apr-17-15|| ||pinoymaster77: AFGM vs GM Oli naman, he's handled before, all the best|
|Apr-17-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Picked up some good points from GM Daniel King's analyses - on the WCs Anand vs Carlsen game, Magnus didn't go for the Berlin but the Marshall Gambit. Some winning lines for Ex-WC Anand (Nb4 instead of the safer Ne3) but opted to play safe. Wes he seeing ghost as per GM Delchev concurring in the chessbomb commentary?|
Akala ko in monitoring the middle game part sa chessbomb eh makabawi si Ex-WC Vishy, but Magnus 'escaped'
So vs Giri followed a Korchnoi-Timman game for the early moves
|Apr-19-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Ah sa Bangkok Open eh nagka tigpasan pala sa last round eh, nalo Indian GM Ganguly kay GM Wang Hao, masaklap yun for Wang Indian winning over Chinese. Tapos Polish GM Dragun won over GM Vallejo Pons, dragon talaga! Tapos Indian IM's Diptayan's GM norm hunt mukhang stymied by eventual champ GM Nigel, nagising yata sa earlier pagkatalo k GM Oli. Now eh 6.5 pts finish ni IM Diptayan eh baka nabitin pa, kung naka 7pts baka may chance...|
Sila GMs Oli and JP nasa grupo ng 6.5 pointers, 8th si Oli and 13th si JP after tiebreak, sa grupo ng 6 pointers, 20th si AFGM and 22nd si IM Pau. Pati GM Jay nakahabol sa 6pts (30th)
|Apr-20-15|| ||spawn2: Still a solid performance by GM Torre with 4 wins 4 draws and a loss.|
Shed 1 pt sa present elo but no big deal. Next stop will be BOGM or Asian Individuals.
IM Pau made good progress. He will finally breach 2400 come May rating list.
|Apr-20-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Checked the BOGM, sa Aug pa Finals. The Semis eh in May and IM Pau may need to play in it.|
Based lang sa latest tournaments, mukhang sila GM Oli and IM Hari ang may uptick in their games (compared to previous outings) and have to see if they can maintain it
BOGM edition this year is not for Olympiad team, yung BOGM 2016 next year siguro ang for next Olympiad team
|Apr-22-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Looked up the April FIDE ratings as this reflected the 2 tournaments in Vietnam around March. A bit SHOCKING to see even LOWER ELOs from our GMs. For the May rating, maybe we'll get to see a few ELO rise for some of our GMs and for IM Hari, while IM Pau may be breaching 2400 :|
1 Gomez, John Paul g PHI 2520 18 1986
2 Sanchez, Joseph g PHI 2505 9 1970
3 Paragua, Mark g PHI 2501 0 1984

16 Nolte, Rolando m PHI 2400 18 1972
|Apr-22-15|| ||pinoymaster77: From that list of the 'TOP 16' with ELO > 2400, GM Villamayor is mainly inactive and into chess coaching in Spore, I dont know whats status of GM Banjo after not showing up in the Olympiad, IM Dableo is into UST coaching and overseas stints mainly for chess team / rapid events.|
GM Mark is in the US and nagpaalam na sa NCFP, and another GM reportedly migrating to US with family.
The only youngsters are IM Hari, and IMs Paulo and Jem knocking on the 2400 level.
The prospective youngsters like NM Jacutina and Rilloraza of FEU eh di pa hinog as per their Asian Jrs results in Tagaytay recently.
But meantime the NCFP continues to 'invest' in the chess youth, like the FIDE World Schools in Thailand starting May 6, and the back-to-back Asian schools and ASEAN Age Group in Spore.
|Apr-23-15|| ||wordfunph: <spawn2> deserves this one..|
|Apr-26-15|| ||Nf3em: Good Monday morning AFGM and bros <Alex>, <Ed>, <PM77>, et al. |
|Apr-28-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Good am Nf3em,
Lets lookout for AFGM's next event
