gm bong was a minor piece down and lost to gm slayer nm rolly andador.

gm bong,
when you are free, let's have lunch so that i can discuss to you my proposal.

Dec-24-09  pinoymaster77: Merry Christmas to GM Bong Villamayor and family!

Great opportunity to attend your initial lecture, I learned new facts about chess history and Philippine chess.

I saw upfront how you're deep in chess teaching among our GM ranks, and got some tidbits from that circle of chess education.

I still hope you can have your updated chess materials in CDs form, and we could help promote or distribute.

Dec-26-09  rjsolcruz: finally, the chess workshop plan with gm bong materialized last dec22. it was a whole day affair and 11 kids; 6 hs & 5 gs, attended. btw, this is designed to really be a compact size workshop to maximize the learning process.
