Oct-18-04  percyblakeney: Won against Almasi (2650) today. Indonesia-Hungary 2-2.
Sep-22-07  BIDMONFA: Susanto Megaranto


Sep-30-07  posoo: no one is going to go to a website with a name AS dumm as BIDMONFA
Oct-02-07  XMarxT3hSpot: A great performance by Susanto in Asian Individual Championship!

If he keeps on playing like this, I believe he would pass the 2600 barrier very soon!

Apr-23-08  waustad: The So match Japfa Match (2008) won't help his rating.
Apr-27-08  wolfmaster: <waustad> So true.
Apr-27-08  lopium: He is only 20 and lost so much Elo points. Strange.
May-08-08  timhortons: i wonder with a very high chess consciousness in indonesia these asian pride has not so much kibitzer here. susanto megaranto is now at subic in the philippine to play in an international open competition in chess.subic is a very nice place, id been there once, though my function when i come to the place is work but still id appreciate that its one of the best city in the philippine.
Aug-09-09  redwhitechess: perhaps because english is not as popular in indonesia compare to phillipine. beside indonesia did not focus much on chess but more on other sport like soccer. i would say chess is more popular in phillipine compare to in indonesia, especially at this So time.
