Oct-22-15  Pinkerton: A win versus GM So recently is a gravy for what's to come in 2016. I have my fingers crossed.

  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
