|Dec-29-13|| ||geniokov: I hope GM Sadorra will soon crack the 2600+ barrier by the end of this tournament.|
|Dec-29-13|| ||lakers4sho: He needs to draw vs Wesley and then win Rd6 to crack 2600.|
|Jan-04-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Can't access the FIDE ratings site, but since GM Ino was not fielded vs Webster U due to coaching decision and lost in the last round, he must still be in same level at 2590+.|
Meantime, GM Oli is 5.5/6 at Gurgaon India and so far has +9 gain, if it continues he will again be > 2580.
|Jan-05-14|| ||SugarDom: <pinoymaster77> my Olympiad team roster i posted at WS page has the current rating next. Sadorra is 2595 as of 1st Jan. Don't know the live rating though.|
|Jan-06-14|| ||bubuli55: Happy New Year, Julio !|
|Jan-08-14|| ||cro777: Julio Sadorra is the first grandmaster to sign up for the Millionaire Chess Open! As one of the first 20 GMs, he will ride from the airport in a limo!|
The Millionaire Chess Open will be held over Columbus Day weekend October 9-13, 2014 at exciting Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, Nevada, and boasts a total of a million dollars in prizes - a record payout for an open chess tournament.
|Jan-08-14|| ||Jim Bartle: This tournament really sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.|
They'll need more than a thousand entrants first of all. And then there are the $40,000 prizes in the lower sections. That is an outright invitation for players to sandbag and lose ratings points to get into the lower-rated sections. I bet we'll see 2000+ strength fighting it out in the 1500 section.
|Jan-08-14|| ||cro777: GMs Lenderman and Shabalov will probably play the tournament as well.|
|Jan-08-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Sugardom,
I do hope GM Ino would be available for the Olympiad team.

JULIO CATALINO SADORRA
Recently we devoted a column to the Pan-American Intercollegiate Team Championship and to Wesley So’s 6/6 score to lead the Webster University squad to the title.
University of Texas-Dallas (UTD) was one of the strong contenders and they also had a Filipino on its team, GM Julio Catalino Sadorra. He scored three wins one draw and one loss for 3.5/5. Quite a decent score. Let me show you one of his games.
* * *
Kavutskiy, Konstantin (2283) -- Sadorra, Julio Catalino (2595) [E60]
PanAm Intercollegiate 2013 Lubbock USA (3.3), 28.12.2013
1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.f3 Bg7 4.e4 d6 5.Ne2?!
This is rare. Usually White plays 5.Nc3 followed by Be3, Qd2, 0-0-0 and then he storms Black’s kingside. Later on White realizes that the ideal placement for the knights is one on c3 and the other on e2 and he “takes back the move” by retreating back to e2.
5...a6 6.Nec3 Nc6 7.Be3 e5 8.d5 Nd4
Offering a pawn to give his other knight squares on c5 and e5. This is a common motif for King’s Indian formations.
9.Ne2 Nxe2 10.Bxe2 Nh5 11.g3 0-0 12.Nc3 f5 13.Qd2 Bf6 14.exf5 gxf5 15.0-0-0 Bd7 16.f4 Qe8 17.fxe5 Bxe5 18.Bxh5 Qxh5 19.Ne2 c5 20.Nf4 Qf7 21.Nd3 Bg7 22.Bh6 b5 23.b3 bxc4 24.bxc4 f4! 25.Bxg7
[25.Bxf4 Bf5! (with the threat of ...Rab8) 26.Bh6 Bxd3 27.Bxg7 Qxg7 28.Qxd3 Rab8! White cannot hold this.]
25...Qxg7 26.Qb2 f3 27.Qxg7+ Kxg7 28.Rhf1 Rae8 29.Rde1 Rxe1+ 30.Nxe1 f2 31.Nd3
White probably thought he can win the f2 pawn, but Sadorra has seen farther.
[32.Nxf2 is met by 32...Bh3]
32...Kf6 33.Kd1 Bg4 34.Kc2 Bf5+ 35.Kd2 Ke5 36.Ke2 Bg4 37.Nd3+ Kd4 38.Nxf2 Re3+ 39.Kd2 Re2+ 40.Kc1 Bf5!
With the idea of ...Re2xa2-a1+ and against this one White has no defence.
41.g4 Rxa2 0-1

|Jan-31-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Good AM,
Joeyj has made the rounds. Malapit na malapit na sa 2600. Tamang tama yan hopefully for the Olympiad in Aug, puede sa Board 2 or 3.
|Feb-04-14|| ||wordfunph: from Chess Life 2014 February..
<Lenderman told Sadorra, “I like the way you play chess. You went from an IM to a strong GM while in college. I think you could be an inspiration for a lot of people.” Sadorra plans to teach chess, work for Chessity (www.chessity.com/), and train for his first Olympiad, where he will represent the Philippines. His long-term plans include pursuit of a master of business administration.>
good luck, GM Ino!
|Feb-06-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Ok, nice to hear of GM Ino's plans! Initially thought chessity was personal site, looks like its much bigger group, and can work for them.|
Nice one knowing he will be preparing for his 'First Olympiad', yung isang slot sa 'dream team' ni Genio eh andun na ah.
|Feb-08-14|| ||lakers4sho: Anyone know Ino's next event(s)? Perhaps someone can ask him on FB|
|Feb-13-14|| ||pinoymaster77: As per last FB w/ GM Ino, next event daw nya eh Lone Star event, can't recall if this Feb or next month...|
|Feb-24-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Nag confirm si GM Ino na Champ nga siya sa just concluded Lone Star Open. Naka +3 daw, but lets wait for the next FIDE monthly rating, for the official ELO.|
|Feb-26-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Nice sharing by GM / Coach Inopov on his recent game in the Lone Star Open, helps understand the Catalan Opening :|
|Feb-27-14|| ||spawn2: Looking forward to this GM representing our country in the coming Olympiad. I think he will be good on board 3 if ever.|
|Feb-27-14|| ||joeyj: Ino Sadorra Live Rating:
|Feb-28-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Di pa raw na submit yung Lone Star results, in time for the March 1 ratings, so ELO officially remains muna at 2598.|
But anyway, Ino is ay 2600 level already, and will lookout for his next event.
Im not sure if there's still time for him to be an invited GM to the KCF GM Invitational. Its already March but no news yet.
|Mar-04-14|| ||pinoymaster77: But Ive just checked there's still no entry for March 2014 in Ino's FIDE Card, hope the Lone Star organizer submits soon : http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/sports/0...|
