|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.|

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|| ||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.|
