|Feb-02-08|| ||s4life: And it seems he's finally passing 2500 on the way. So he's unofficially a GM. Way to go!|
|Dec-01-08|| ||Caissanist: Cordova finally received the GM title yesterday, a year after earning it. A Peruvian news story about it mentioned "bureaucratic procedures" as causing the delay.|
|Dec-01-08|| ||Jim Bartle: No surprise about the delay, since Peru is out of international football now because of internal "bureaucratic procedures."|
|Dec-01-08|| ||veigaman: <since Peru is out of international football now > what a pitty, such a good football, full of technic. It is a pitty the disorganization, the chaos in the peruvian football. I just rememeber: cubillas, sotil, chumpitaz, oblitas, perico leon, uribe, etc.|
|Dec-01-08|| ||Jim Bartle: Yes, but I notice that all the great players you mention are from the 80s or earlier...|
|Dec-01-08|| ||veigaman: Palacios, pizarro, hidalgo, guerrero, farfan are newer. We can also mention teams: alianza, universitario, sporting cristal,etc. Peru has the tradition, his own style base on technic, however, its main problems are: lack of organization, lack of economical resources and indiscipline in the players.|
|Dec-01-08|| ||Jim Bartle: Well, IMO that second list doesn't hold a candle to your first list. |
I'm of the general opinion that no South American club teams are that good, not close to the standards of the good teams in England, Spain or Italy.
|Dec-01-08|| ||veigaman: South american was, is and will be the best football. It is true that the teams sell the young players to european team for economical reasons but you dont have to forget the south american teams has won the same quantity of copa intercontinentales than european teams, just remember like boca juniors beat real madrid and milan some years ago.|
Moreover, argentina, brazil and uruguay has won 9 world cup and if we count the youth worlc cup argentine and brazil are leading easyly.
About players: distefano, pele, maradona, rial, sivori, tostao, rivellino, kempes, beto alonso, schiaffino, spencer, figueroa, cubillas, francescoli, romario, ronaldo, rivaldo, messi, gerson, etc
|Dec-01-08|| ||Jim Bartle: Well, I guess we'll just disagree on the quality of club teams.|
Of course South America has and has had many great players, but today they all play in Europe. And of course Brazil's and Argentina's national teams are always strong.
|Dec-01-08|| ||veigaman: <jim> I mentioned alianza, universitario, sporting because oif his tradition in south america, the tradition is sth very important in sports because it shows the background. Of course, the the current peruvian teams can´t compite with the european team, i agree with you here, but they have an history in football in this continent. By contrast, my country doesnt have any team with this tradition.|
|Dec-01-08|| ||Inf: Well now that FIFA told us that we cant play absolutely nothing, maybe the gov. can help once and for all the chess players like Emilio!|
I can't believe this is happening. The only good thing is that he is finally a GM. Bravo for Emilio!
|Dec-01-08|| ||Inf: I would say that South America <soccer> (not football) is better than the european.|
|Dec-01-08|| ||NakoSonorense: Some of the finest football players come from South America. There's no doubt about that.|
But South American football clubs are not even close to those from Europe. And there's no doubt about that either.
|Dec-02-08|| ||Jim Bartle: It's telling to see what club teams the members the South American national teams play for.|
For example, of the starters for Argentina at the last World Cup, the goalie played for Boca, Tevez and Mascherano for Corinthians (Brazil), and the rest in Europe. And now Tevez is at Manchester United and Mascherano at Liverpool.
When they become good enough, the best players go to Europe.
|Dec-05-08|| ||whiteshark: <Caissanist> Yes!
Grandmaster title approved to him at the 79th FIDE Congress which was held 16-26 November 2008 in Dresden, Germany.
|Aug-04-10|| ||Inf: Why hasn't Chessgames update his profile? He is playing in Poland with the Cori brothers and all 3 won their 1st game. His last game was not in 2008.|
|Aug-12-10|| ||Inf: Good tournament so far for Emilio! Currently 3rd place only 0.5 behind the leader. Hope they put the games here.|
|Aug-12-10|| ||Eduardo Leon: Córdova is having a very good tournament so far. Let's see how he fares against the tournament leader in the next round.|
If Peruvian soccer were half as good as Peruvian chess... But I guess that's too much to ask for.
|Aug-12-10|| ||Caissanist: Is there a website for this tournament?|
|Aug-14-10|| ||Eduardo Leon: <Caissanist>, http://www.wjcc2010.pl/en. In English and po Polsku.|
|Aug-15-10|| ||Caissanist: Thanks much.|
|Aug-16-10|| ||Eduardo Leon: As we would say in Spanish, "Córdova al final se desinfló." ("Desinflar" means the opposite of "inflar", "to inflate.")|
|Aug-17-10|| ||Inf: Well, given that there is little support from the goverment, I think he did great. Good wins.|
It would have been much better if he had won the games as white. Thank you Emilio!
|Jun-06-16|| ||sonia91: Emilio Cordova won the 11th <American Continental Championship>, staged in San Salvador, El Salvador, with 9/11: http://www.chess-results.com/tnr218...|

|Nov-01-16|| ||sonia91: Cordova, reigning champion of the Americas, at 2649 overtakes Julio Ernesto Granda Zuniga to become Peru's #1 this month. Probably it's the first time in something like over 30 years that Granda in not Peru's number one.|
