Oct-25-07  jofre: IM Salvador round 7 opponent is GM,his 3rd GM opponent in this tournament.his current score is 5.5/6.To gain a GM norm, 1 has to play against,at least from 3 different federations, 3 GM opponents and 2/3 or of the score.but i think his opponenet elo averages is not that high, so the very safe is at least 7/9 score. meaning 1.5/3 for the next 3 rounds is very attainable by in-form and solid IM SALVADOR.
Oct-25-07  micrab: IM Salvador, who incidentally is the defending champion in this tourney has a very realistic chance of nailing his 3rd(?) and final norm. May he succeed in his quest.
Oct-25-07  NOKRO: IM Roland Salvador is one of the promising and consistent chessplayers that we could look up to, to score big in the world chess scene. Go for that 3rd and final GM norm! Another GM in the making!

  whiteshark: Well, well, let him smell the reality of chess biz.
Oct-26-07  Pinoychess: Great win by IM Salvador. GM norm within reach.

Oct-27-07  rainbowxpress: IM Salvador lost his last game. I'm not sure if he is still in contention in earning his 3rd & last GM norm.
Oct-29-07  gebeck: IM Salvador got 6.5 out of 9 and he
played 3 GMs. Did he get his 3rd GM
norms. Please explain anyone? Thanks
May-19-09  pinoymaster77: Sharing the ff news on latest exploits by GM Salvador in Europe, along with IM Vuelban :

Pinoy chessers finish 1-2 in Italy tournament
05/19/2009 03:47 PM

MANILA, Philippines - Rolando Salvador and Virgilio Vuelban posted a 1-2 finish for the Philippines in the recent Circolo Bertellini Salsomaggiore International Open Chess in Italy.

Salvador and Vuelban actually finished tied for the first to third spots with Serbian GM Miroljub Lazic after finishing with five points but Salvador bagged the title because of a better tie-break point.

The three finished tied for the top spot following their victories in the last round with Salvador downing IM Milan Mrdja of Croatia, Vuelban defeating FM Marco Corvi of Italy and Lazic subduing IM Paolo Vezzosi also of Italy.

Over at the the US Chess championship in Missouri, IM Enrico Sevillano of the Philippines finished tied for the 16th to 19th spots with GM Julio Becerra and IMs Michael Brooks and Tyler Hughes with their identical 4.0 points.

Sevillano was on his way to posting a better finish but defeat in the last two rounds to IM Ray Robson and GM Larry Christiansen sent him down the standings.

But Sevillano, now based in Tehachapi, California, pocketed $2,375 (over P100,000).Champion GM Hikaru Nakamura took home the top prize worth $40,000 with his 7.0 points.

May-19-09  pinoymaster77: Sana they could compete in the major tourneys in the Phils. I think next would be the GMA and Pichay Cups
Aug-08-10  asianwarrior: They fared well in other coubrries. Does this mean the Philippines would fare well in the international scene.
Aug-29-10  rainbowxpress: Congrats to IM Salvador for topping the just concluded 1° Festival Internazionale del Fermano A after a tie-break. I guess, his PRtg of 2585 and having paired with 4 GMs during the tournament, are enough to nail the last GM norm he needed to achieve his full GM status.
Aug-31-10  Pinoychess: congrats for nailing your 3rd and final GM norm
Sep-02-10  balweg214: Final GM norm for Salvador
Sep-02-10  TugasKamagong: Congrats, Roland Salvador! I notice your Elo rating is 2498, just 2 points below the minimum for the GM title. I guess your 2585 perfromance will put you over 2500 in the next FIDE list. I just hope you'll play like hell when you're a GM, and not rest on your laurels.
Sep-05-10  The Eagles: Congrats GM Salvador!
Sep-06-10  prensdepens: Congratulations GRANDMASTER Roland Salvador! This was long overdue! We know you can pull this off!

Congratulations to the new GRANDMASTER!

Sep-06-10  hatsis: Congrats, GM Salvador. Mula sa malayong pinsan.:o)
Oct-02-10  spawn2: Congrats GM Roland..
Oct-03-10  321ycnay: GM na rin at last, being in the radar for a quite bit already, and deservedly so with your excellent play in tournaments one after another, all the while being far away from the friendly confines.... Hats off to you, sir, and congratulations, our newest GM! Keep it up!
