|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...|

|Mar-10-14|| ||chess5p121: Result of March 7-9, 2014 Western Class Championship:
|Mar-11-14|| ||joeyj: Ino Sadorra Live Rating: (after 2014 Western Class Chess Championships)|
|Mar-11-14|| ||SugarDom: Here's that article:
MANILA, Philippines - Julio Cataliono Sadorra, the second highest ranked Filipino chess player next to fellow Grandmaster Wesley So, is eyeing no less than a slot in the Philippine team seeing action in the World Chess Olympiad slated Aug. 1-15 in Tromso, Norway.
The problem though is that he has no means to join the qualification tournament the National Chess Federation of the Philippines is soon to hold in the Philippines, which is far from his base in the US.
“It’s every Filipino chess player’s dream to play for flag and country in the Olympiad especially now that I’ve finished my studies at University of Texas-Dallas,” the 26-year-old Sadorra, self-supporting student who took up Entrepreneurship, yesterday told The STAR.
“But it will be hard for me to fly to the country to play in a qualification event now due to economic and financial reasons,” he added.
It will be a waste not to have Sadorra in the national squad considering that he is currently the No. 2 player in the country with a FIDE rating of 2598, second only to the 20-year-old So, who is No. 20 in the world with 2738.
Just last month, Sadorra reigned in the 2014 Lone Star Open tournament in Houston, Texas where he got enough points to breach the 2600 or super-GM plateau that will be reflected in FIDE’s monthly rating this April . This will make him only the third Filipino to achieve such feat next to So and GM Mark Paragua.

“Yes, I will have a 2601 rating when rounded up in the next FIDE rating list by the end of the month,” said Sadorra, who renewed his passport in Los Angeles, California recently.
Sadorra will join the Chicago Open next this weekend hoping to further gain rating points while maintaining his high level of play.
Sadorra said he wants to pursue playing chess but he will need support from the private sector, and if possible, from the government.
“I’m really hoping and praying I could get support from the Philippine Sports Commission and NCFP soon so I can recoup my expenses and I can play in more events and represent the country in the future,” said Sadorra.
But if things don’t work out as planned, Sadorra said he might go back to the academe and continue his studies.
“I really want to keep a Phl passport and keep playing for the Phl in tournaments here or other places. But it will really depend if I could get a sponsor or support for my chess career. If not, I will consider getting an MBA degree and a normal job in the future,” he said.
|Mar-11-14|| ||SugarDom: What an admirable young man.
Bos Reggie is already working out his participation in the Olympiad. Being the no.2 player of the country and 2600+ player, he ought to be seeded outright.
|Mar-11-14|| ||chess5p121: I would like to set things right for GM Julio Sadorra. To all readers of Joey Villar’s article, I would like to point out that interpretations of facts and realities need to be accurate. I know very well GM Sadorra and his parents’ life principles:
1. First family principle is work hard to support yourself and your family, help others when able, and do not depend on government and private funding (in other words, receive only what comes).
2. GM Julio’s parents supported his education, personal training, and covered his travel expenses for tournaments overseas since he was 6 years old. Government and private assistance was only occasional. His scholarship from the University of Texas at Dallas was partial, and his parents specially worked out his scholarship at UTD. |
His family definitely does not approve of asking support from institutions through the media.
|Mar-11-14|| ||SugarDom: <chess5p121:>
Are you GM Sadorra or his relative? Coz I don't believe he has done or said anything that one can be ashamed of.
If anything, I find it admirable that he wants to play for the Philippine team and considers himself still a Filipino despite living in the US for many years.
|Mar-11-14|| ||chess5p121: SugarDom
Yes, we are Julio’s parents and family writing here. Nothing wrong with Julio's personal choice to play for the Philippines and nothing wrong with other written information from the article. What we do not agree with is the information from Julio or from Joey Villar on "self supporting" as if he was abandoned by his family and we do not agree with the message from Julio or Joey Villar asking support from institutions through media, we mean direct or indirect asking support in public via media which is to us unprofessional. Julio should have gone personally to the office or the officials themselves to ask or write a formal request and wait patiently. We respect and appreciate your opinion in taking the article positively. We already discussed the matter with Julio and we will also clarify our concern with Joey Villar.
|Mar-12-14|| ||SugarDom: <chess5p121>. Ok, I understand your point. It might sound like he's begging for support. But I think the impression that he's been "abandoned by his family" is far from crossing the reader's mind.|
And in my opinion, he need not go to the institutions at all. It's actually the duty of the chess federation to come to him, given his talent. Unfortunately, our ...better kept my mouth shut ;)...
|Mar-18-14|| ||pinoymaster77: I do hope NCFP announces soon on the mechanics for forming the 2014 Olympiad team. If its still 2 seeded players, then its my opinion its no brainer that it should be our top 2 players GMs Wesley and Ino.|
|Mar-21-14|| ||pinoymaster77: I hope its not yet cause for alarm, but the 2 last events which GM Ino won are still not reflected in FIDE.com, even for April rating. I think the Lone Star event was concluded in late Feb and we were dismissing as missing the cutoff, but til now even for April, its still not reflected.|
Hopefully, both tourney organizers submit to results to FIDE soon.
|Mar-31-14|| ||pinoymaster77: Now officially 2605 per latest FIDE April ratings list, per ka-Ahedres' post in FB, Ino is the 3rd Pinoy GM to reach this milestone after GMs Mark and Wesley. GM Oli was very close recently but didn't scale that summit yet.|
|Mar-31-14|| ||geniokov: My "Dream Team" will come true! Congratz GM Ino Sadorra.|
