Aug-11-14  bubuli55: Maganda sana kung madala mo lahat ng players manood ng sine dyan sa rest day bukas. Para relaks at masaya. Maganda sa sayki. Iba ang tira kapag kumportable.

Go Julio Go!

Aug-14-14  bubuli55: Congratulations on a successful Olympiad! Good job, Julio.

Baka naman may makita kang Olympiad poster dyan na nakakalat e I've been itching to have one :) Thanks. Text kita sa Sunday :)

Aug-15-14  arkitekto: Good job GM Inno! Bring that rating back to SuperGM status...until your next tour of duty - Olympiad 2016! You are blessed.
Aug-18-14  bubuli55: Nakabalik na si Julio sa Dallas at nagpapasamat sa mga sumuporta sa kanya at buong PHI team.

Way to go, Julio !

Aug-18-14  bubuli55: Hintayin natin ang kanyang pagpupugay dito sa kanyang pahina :)

Baka sakaling makapanayam natin siya sa kanyang ekspiryens sa Tromso tungkol sa 11 games diretso at yung kay Ivanchuk game 14...Nf2! Whey! :)

Go Julio Go!

Aug-18-14  JulioS: Hello mga kababayan!

Thank you for following my games and for believing that I can lead our team in this year's Olympiad. I'm very grateful for the encouragement, excitement and cheers dito.

I'm now back to training and am hoping to bring more excitement and inspiration to you all in my future games!

I'd also like to give a special shout-out to wordfunph & pinoymaster77 :)

Best regards,
GM Julio Sadorra

Aug-18-14  bubuli55: Maraming salamat, Julio!
Aug-18-14  bubuli55: GM Julio Sadorra in the haus! Anong masasabi mo tungkol sa laro ninyo ni Ivanchuk ?
Aug-18-14  resty: Superb stand, GM Ino!!! Congrats, more power to you!!!
Aug-18-14  Pulo y Gata: Congratulations, GM Sadorra! Keep on it!
Aug-18-14  JulioS: @bubuli55 It was an intense game from start to finish, because we both were already calculating lines in the opening stage. It was my favorite game dahil na-match ko ang kanyang creativity at resourcefulness in the middlegame & endgame.

I believe the most important defensive resources were ...Nxf2 and Rg4 then back to g6!

Aug-18-14  bubuli55: Whoa! Maraming salamat, GM Julio. That's indeed a memorable game.

I know it's late already, but did any factors - the weather, jet lag, food, long daylight - affect you at all ? You and JP played straight 11 games :)

Aug-18-14  JulioS: Jetlag and the long duration of daylight made it difficult for my to sleep in some nights. It took me a few days to adjust my body clock. But everything else was helpful for making the Olympiad the best tournament experience! For instance, great cool weather, healthy fish & vegetable dishes, and the 1 game-per-day schedule with 2 rest days!
Aug-18-14  SugarDom: Hi GM JulioS. Thanks for playing for the PHilippines. God bless.
Aug-18-14  bubuli55: Thanks GM Julio. On to Millionaire Chess! Good luck!
Aug-19-14  spawn2: (@GM JulioS)Looking forward to you representing Pinas in future Team events.
Aug-19-14  Pulo y Gata: What's your next event, GM? Looking forward to it.

  wordfunph: bubz, thanks sa araybal ni GM Sadorra here in CG.

anlufet :)

Aug-19-14  bubuli55: wordz. Ispesyal mensyon pa kayo ni PM77. :)

Mabait si GM Julio.

Aug-19-14  pinoymaster77: Good am!!

Nice to read GM Ino's posts, may shoutout pa, thanks!

Congratulations for successfully anchoring the Philippine team in the Tromso Olympiad, sa maiden Olympiad stint pa and being 1 of the PINOY IRONMEN in playing ALL the 11 games (pati GM JP).

We are looking forward na kayong 3 nila GM JP and IM Paulo would form the young core of the next Olympiad teams. Hopefully 1 of our top guns can play pa, and for AFGM Torre, it will be assessed 2 years from now.

Im sure for GM Ino's chess career, it made him see his still unrealized potential, and we will follow your journey towards the 2625 and then the 2650 levels !

Aug-20-14  pinoymaster77: During these days, what sticks in memory is what Pontius Pilate said in the moview Passion of the Christ, by the way this is in the Bible too 'what is Truth?' and tama ba sa orig 'Que es veritas?'.

Grabe talaga these times when truth is attacked relentlessly, dami spinmasters,vested interests and outright liars.

Will just PM some actual witnesses o ask kung may chance magkita-kits.

Sep-06-14  bubuli55: GM Julio Sadorra is training for the upcoming Millionaire Chess in Las Vegas this October.

Good luck, GM Julio. :)

Sep-09-14  pinoymaster77: All the best kay GM Ino, mga 1 month na lang!

Sana more Pinoys can join that Millionaire Chess Open and get some of those prizes !

Sep-12-14  pinoymaster77: Reportedly, matuloy daw the 2 intl events nasa NCFP calendar in Nov. Wonder if free sked ni GM Ino to play. Usually naman ma cover airfare specially now na PSC elite athlete and de facto PHI #1.
