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!

  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.
Premium Chessgames Member
  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 :)

  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.

  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.

  bubuli55: Alfred Nobel's dynamite changed the civilization and the face of the Earth. Dynamite hastened the construction of the Hoover Dam, the transcontinental railroad, among others. It also played a big part in connecting two oceans. On a simple way, it is used to control the mosquito population - not by blowing up the bugs, but by blowing out ditches full of stagnant water where they breed.

Chess #2 Fabiano Capuana showed dynamic play in HC Sinquefield Cup by winning his first seven games and drawing the last three games. Caruana's explosive performance could arguably be the best ever in chess history.

Just maybe, that performance will give Julio great motivation to blow out the challenges to the next level. And forward on. :)

Sep-25-14  pinoymaster77: Im almost sure it was great experience for GM Ino to man the top board for PHI team in Tromso, specially that memorable fighting draw vs legend GM Chucky Ivanchuk.

No way to go but UP...

Premium Chessgames Member
  bubuli55: Best of luck, Julio. May you be that Million Man!

  wordfunph: gm JC, all the best!

  bubuli55: A tough pairing for Julio in today's rd 7 against Dreev. Even tho Julio plays the light colors here, Dreev is tough with the black pieces esp. with the Benoni. This pairing is going to be a very good match. My prediction is a draw.

Let the fun begin! :)

Oct-12-14  Pulo y Gata: Dreev is also an acknowledged theoretician in Slav and Semi-Slav openings.

  bubuli55: Nice game, Julio :)
