  wordfunph: GM Richard Bitoon --- bagay na bagay ang title!

we could somehow adjust in addressing him from IM Bitoon to GM Bitoon. I saw him playing in one of the local tourneys, I noticed nakatanggal sapatos niya at wala siyang medyas, maybe he's more comfortable playing in that manner.

Oct-03-11  pinoymaster77: All the best, lalaro ata sa Jakarta next week...

Feeling Ecstatic!

Champion of the 2015 Battle of Grandmasters - National Chess Championship!

A good addition to the many reasons to be happy!

This brings back the memories of year 1998 when I won my very first National Championship Tournament the Far East Bank Open, a cash-rich and a very prestigious one.

Dethroning last BOGM winner GM Eugene Torre is also a big achievement. The living legend of Philippine chess at his later years is still capable of playing chess at a highest level.

All in all, a great chess for all the participants especially the top three winners. GM Antonio once again in his usual deadly form played a very strong chess and GM-elect Pascua once again proved himself as the countrys most promising player.

More success to come!

Congratulations to my good friend GM Richard Bitoon for topping the recently concluded 2015 Battle of Grandmasters. Isa po sa hinahangaan ko sa mga magagaling na chess player sa ating bansa. Hindi lamang po sa kanyang gandang lalaki at may maganda din po siyang kalooban.Hindi nagbibigay ng laro at hindi din bumibili ng laro.Bagamat nakahabol ako sa huling dalawang larong panalo ay kinulang pa din ako sa tie break ng kalahating puntos.Ang titulong National Champion ay pang labing tatlo (13th) ko sana. Ako ay nagagalak dahil naibalik ko na din ang dati kong laro na laging gustong manalo kahit sino pa ang kalaban at sa panalo ng ating kaibigan.

Again Congratulations to GM Richard Bitoon! Keep it up Brad...
