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 :)
Oct-21-14  pinoymaster77: Nice article in chessity by GM Ino :

Oct-28-14  joeyj: Now the #1 player of the PHI !!!

Nov-06-14  pinoymaster77: Di na accessible FB ni GM Ino.

bubuli55, would you have news if GM Ino could play in the 2 intl events here in Dec ?

Nov-18-14  pinoymaster77: Thanks for the confirmation / reply GM Ino !

All the best sa UTD Invitational !

Nov-22-14  pinoymaster77: Sa on-going UTD Dallas Fall FIDE Open, eh per chessdom site sa rd1 GM Ino drew vs Li Rifeng. while WIM Chardine Camacho lost to Denis Kadric. Daniel Gurevich drew with GM Conrad Holt.

In round 2, GM Ino beat Daniel Gurevich , GM Holt won over Michael Corallo. Another US name Ive been hearing is Kayden Troff who won over Li Ruegenf

In the on-going rd3, GM Ino playing Arnan Hambleton, Koushik Girish vs Kayden Troff, WIM Camacho vs Zurab Javakhadze, David Berkzes vs GM Holt.

Malamang daw GM Holt (playing for Dallas) makaharap sa USCL Finals sa top board ni GM Wes next Wed. 2 other names na familiar eh Jeffrey Xiong and Anton Kovalyov.

  bubuli55: Maganda ang panalo ni GM Julio sa round 3. :)


Nov-27-14  pinoymaster77: Nakapuntos sa last rounds for more decent 14th place finish.

Regroup na lang and few days rest, then byahe to dear Phils.

Sila GM JP and IM Pau would be coming straight from tournaments, si JP sa Qatar rd3 today while Pau sa Asian Jrs set to start pa this Sat.

Dec-16-14  pinoymaster77: After a rough sailing in the PICC where GM Ino finished with 5.5 / 10 and losing -18.9 sa ELO with losses to IM Narayanan, GM Bitoon and NM Dela Cruz, eh Ino bounced back with a GOOD start in the PSC / Puregold Chess Challenge, leading the Pinoy charge with 3.5 / 4.

All the best to GM Ino in the remaining 6 games !

Dec-17-14  pinoymaster77: After 6 rounds, Tromso Olympians GMs Ino and Panjol leading the Pinoy charge with 4.5pts. Also doing well so far are IM Garcia with 4.5 and IM Pascua with 4pts, but they will start testing more GMs in their next rounds

Dec-18-14  pinoymaster77: After winning over IM Jem in rd7, GM Ino now co-leads with top seed GM Popov with 5.5 pts! Next ay GM Demchenko this am. IM Hari ambushed GM Gagushnavili to up his total to 5pts /6th but will go up against TOP seed GM Popov this am! GM Panjol will play GM Demchenko :

  bubuli55: GM Julio,

Happy Holidays!


Premium Chessgames Member
  bubuli55: Happy New Year 2015!
Mar-03-15  pinoymaster77: Sa Pinoy delegation campaigning in the 3.3 Zonals, si GM Ino lang coming from USA and have to contend with the long trip and jetlag.

Thanks GM Ino for sticking it out with the NCFP and continue to play for PHI, even if US-based and married to a US citizen. Dual citizen na din siguro si GM Ino?

Mar-10-15  pinoymaster77: After 4 rounds, GM Ino the highest placed Pinoy with 3pts, naka recover na sa earlier loss to IM Hari

Mar-16-15  pinoymaster77: New tournament, hope GM Ino has much better outing, unang opponent eh Viet prodigy FM Nguyen Anh Khoi. The kid would also probably be in the ASEAN Age Group again to campaign again in the U20 for that outright IM title.
Mar-17-15  pinoymaster77: GM Ino came in sharper, reaching Viet's youth player FM Anh Khoi some lessons :
