1. Vaisser 4.5/6
2. Karpov 4.0/6
3. Ljubojevic 2.5/6
4. Torre 1.0/6
|Jun-28-18|| ||spawn2: Thanks @ jaccas.
I ws reviewing the last game between Torre-Vaisser. GM Torre was ahead with a pawn plus King and Knight vs King and Knight for GM Vaisser. Biut it seems flag fell for AFGM.
|Jun-29-18|| ||spawn2: AFGM is struggling in this tournament. He has been known to consume huge amount of time even during his peak although, he played well in a 1988 Rapid tourney.|
It seems improbable that he will perform better in the blitz but anything is possible. I always look at a glass as half full rather than half empty. This tournament jumpstarted AFGM’s prep for the coming Olympiad and prior to that the training com selection of team Philippines. His last serious tourney was the November 2017 World Seniors 65+
Many thanks to the organizers for inviting our national treasure and hopefully, he gets invited back next year with ample prep for the faster time control.
Mabuhay ang Manlalarong Pilipino!

|Jun-30-18|| ||Joshka: <spawn2> allright, guess someone was trying to be humorous;-)|
|Jun-30-18|| ||Joshka: <Nonnus> Do not accuse me of INVENTING anything!! During the time period when Bobby lived in Iceland hundreds of articles appeared, I try to read everything I can on Fischer. If you don't remember or never saw these articles, fine, but please do not pretend I'd make up such things!! Anyway it's not a big deal, if the articles were wrong fine, they were out there, and I read about them on more than just one occasion!!|
|Jun-30-18|| ||Nonnus: Alien spaceships are also out there and I saw them on several occasions.|
I just forgot to take photos of them.
|Jun-30-18|| ||jaccas: mukhang walang nanalo, better luck next time.|
|Jul-01-18|| ||wordfunph: <. JimNorCal: >|
|Jul-01-18|| ||spawn2: Next stop hopefully for AFGM is his 24th appearance in the Batumi Olympiad.|
Thanks to bro bubz for sponsoring the Superfecta Challenge.
|Jul-01-18|| ||bubuli55: Thanks to all who participated in the Superfecta. Since nobody won I’m not sure what to do with Mr Franklin here. I may just add him to our Olympiad challenge.|
|Jul-01-18|| ||JimNorCal: <wordfunph>: heh|
There is a prize for getting the order upside down? No? :)
|Jul-02-18|| ||jaccas: Anatoly Karpov wins "Legends" tournament
by Klaus Besenthal
7/2/2018 – The combined rapid and blitz tournament of the four "chess legends" Anatoly Karpov, Ljubomir Ljubojevic, Eugenio Torre and Anatoly Vaisser in the Catalan seaside resort of Platja d'Aro ended yesterday with Karpov's overall victory. While the ex-world champion had fallen behind Vaisser by half a point after the six Rapid games at the start of the event, he succeeded in reversing the story during the blitz tournament.
1. Karpov - 12½ / 18
2. Vaisser's - 12 / 18.
3. Ljubojevic - 7½ / 18
4. Torre - 4 / 18.
|Jul-02-18|| ||jaccas: Eugenio Torre of the Philippines became the first Asian Grandmaster (who was not a Soviet citizen) in 1974 (an astounding fact from today's perspective!). He's now 66 (like Karpov born in 1951) and going strong! By the way, Torre is also a record participant in chess Olympiads — he has now participated 23 times in his home country. His performance in Platja d'Aro, however, was a bit sad — solidly in last place.|
|Jul-02-18|| ||dunkenchess: Dalawang beses nakaharap ko si AFGM dalawang beses akong nabugbug.|
|Jul-02-18|| ||jaccas: As in FPJ ? Kaso wala na si FPJ si Coco (CM) na lang ang Prov or si Cocopov.|
|Jul-03-18|| ||epistle: guess who has left the fans club and signed up for the LA Leakers?|
|Jul-05-18|| ||spawn2: GM Eugene together with GM Gonzales, IM Miciano and WGM Frayna are playing in the Barbera del Valles 2018 Open. All four (4) won in the 1st rd.|
|Jul-13-18|| ||spawn2: GM Eugene placing 17th overall while GM Gonzales dished out a good performance snaring 5th place. IM Miciano and WGM Frayna shed elo points.|
Was hoping for a higher finish for AFGM but I still view his participation in the 2 tourneys as successful due to the opportunity these two tourneys gave GM Torre in terms of his prep for the Olympiad. For Miciano and Frayna, the reduction in their elo points is compensated by the gain in experience.
|Jul-18-18|| ||Bratek: Eugenio Torre is best known for being the first grandmaster from Asia. In his prime, he achieved marvellous feats that included beating the then World Champ Anatoly Karpov, being a world championship candidate himself and seconding Bobby Fischer in his 1992 match against Boris Spassky.https://en.chessbase.com/post/inter...|
|Jul-18-18|| ||wordfunph: <Bratek> thumbs up!|
..and El Eugenio is a true gentleman.
|Jul-21-18|| ||pinoymaster77: Chessbase/David Llada interview naman of legend Karpov, many insights|
Babalik daw sya to Platja d' Aro 2019,sana pati Euge
