|Jul-21-15|| ||gokusano: All the best GM Eugene!|
|Jul-21-15|| ||joeyj: 7.5/8 for Torre & Laylo
1 rnd to go
|Jul-22-15|| ||spawn2: GM Torre winning the Guam International Open Chess 2015 via tibreaks against compatriot GM Laylo. Both finished the tournament with 8.5 points but GM Torre's opponents have a higher average rating combined compared to GM Laylo's opponents.|
More than winning the title, what is laudable is that GM Torre continues to share his chess knowledge with the "mortals", giving the lower rated players the experience of facing a seasoned grandmaster. He did it with China in 1975 and he is still doing it 40 years after with Guam players.
|Jul-22-15|| ||pinoymaster77: And to TOP it off, the AGELESS legend AFGM Eugene is still doing it, at age 63 or 64 ba?|
Siya din defending champ, having won NCC Finals / BOGM 2014.
|Jul-22-15|| ||wordfunph: El Eugenio bravo!|
|Jul-22-15|| ||Barococo Prosopoeia: Only with his wife or with other women?
His brain is phenomenal. Must be because of his tuna diet.
|Jul-22-15|| ||spawn2: GM Torre will also conduct a 16 board simul after the tourney. Will post the result once available.|
|Jul-22-15|| ||Pulo y Gata: The Grand Master of Philippine Chess, congratulations!|
|Jul-22-15|| ||gokusano: Congratz GM Eugene!|
|Jul-22-15|| ||kamagong24: Truly, a national treasure of Philippine sports!!! Mabuhay GM Torre!!!|
|Jul-23-15|| ||Barococo Prosopoeia: Why not a page for the tournament? The Guamese players will be happy seeing their names at CG.|
|Jul-23-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Ang maganda nyan eh there's closer linkage between the Federations of Guam and Phils.|
Saka AFGM Eugene being the Chairman of the PCTAP can help open doors at the proper time for Pinoy Chess Trainers.
Aside from livelihood eh chance na din for a better life/opportunity for the fortunate ones.

|Jul-24-15|| ||pinoymaster77: NICE, from viewing the KCFAP artcle, some insights :|
- It is a project where Kasparov camp and Pichay worked together
- The Guam players could in return plan in the intl events to be hosted here, NCFP calendar still lists 3 of them, and I think the 1st one could be the old Kasparov Foundation project?
- Meron na palang Guam Chess Learning Center and Kasparov Asia Pacific of Leong / Long are linked up na. Well maybe AFGM Eugene can just link them up to PCTAP, or opportunities for PCTAP members to be tapped. Peter Long and Malaysians already tap Pinoy trainers in chess school ventures in Malaysia.

<By the way, I remember writing once about how people would place their knights on the board before the game. Most people like me would position both knights facing the opposite side of the board. GM Eugene Torre would “point” their knights to the left side of the board. When I asked him about this GM Eugene was surprised and asked “but isn’t that the way they are set up in the diagrams in the chess books?”>
bosh tayo kay Alamat, harhar!
