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 :

Nguyen, Anh Khoi - Sadorra, Julio Catalino

  cro777: Wesley lost a theoretically drawn endgame:

Wesley So (Minnesota Blizzard) - Julio Catalino Sadorra (Dallas Destiny)

Position after 53...Rxb7

click for larger view

This endgame is a theoretical draw after:

54.Ke4 or

Wesley played 54.Rh5? and after 54...Rb6 55.g5 Rb8 resigned.

Oct-23-15  epistle: Julio Catalino "Catas" Sadorra squeezed a win from a theoretically drawn endgame.

And the juice was sweet.

For Wesley, this game is a harbinger of things to come at Bilbao. Instead of studying endgames, he keeps on creating sock puppets and trolling at Master B's page.


Oct-25-15  pinoymaster77: GM Ino still has a lot of upside, with the proper budget support, and training / tournaments.

- Sana natuloy na yung PSC allowance per priority athlete level

- Agreed sya na sana matuloy yung 'plano' na may European tournaments campaign, in preparation for the next Olympiad.

-Yung sinasabi ding FST eh kung for the locals yun, sa case ni GM Ino eh meron naming topnotch Trainers in US or Europe

Jan-11-16  Virgil A: Even tho we haven't seen GM Julio in several tourneys the past year, you just know he's been training physically and technically to produce such a fantastic result. Congratz Julio !

GM Julio is ready to represent again as member of the Philippines team in Baku Olympiad.

Jan-16-16  pinoymaster77: Nice to see GM Ino's FB post that he's in self training for quest to increase ELO!

He was gracious to share up next are Southwest Class and DCC FIDE Open next month. Then eyeing stint in ASEAN event sometime in April.

Sana nga pati BOGM and Olympiad slot! And may GM Panjol join him!

Jan-18-16  pinoymaster77: Di pa filed sa FIDE yung 2nd Gulf Coast New Year's Open result, well its still < 2 weeks. Sana ma file this Jan para makasama na sa Feb rating. If not, then by March pa ma credit.

All the best sa next US tournaments next month
