|Sep-22-15|| ||wordfunph: ...in preparation for 2016 Baku Chess Olympiad :)|
|Sep-22-15|| ||epistle: <AndrewMD: It will be Nakamura vs Svidler in the final round. Who is your bet now? USA vs USSR!>|
FRANCE. France is still the best country in the world.
|Sep-22-15|| ||Nf3em: wow kita ko pa din mga post ng mga favorites ko ...|
|Sep-22-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Good to see sa Malaysia Open some Thai FMs, maybe the chess academies there and Pinoy coaches contributed to development of aspiring Masters ?|
There are also Australian and Indian IMs in the field.
Din naglaro yata GM Mega. Di rin nga natuloy GM Panjol
Magkaalaman yan in the 2nd half of the tournament, round 5 onwards for prospects sa placing
|Sep-24-15|| ||spawn2: Rest day today GM Torre just a point away from the leaders. He can push tomorrow for two wins to close the gap and position himself for a possible podium finish.|
|Sep-25-15|| ||spawn2: GM Eugene winning vs IM Senador. Still a point a way from the leader. When he wins his next two games, its possible he will go up against the leader for a chance to take the lead.|
|Sep-25-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Round 8 on 2015/09/26 at 1500
Bo. No. Name Rtg Pts. Result Pts. Name Rtg No.
1 1 GM Vakhidov Jahongir 2532 6 6 IM Shyaamnikhil P 2427 17
2 7 GM Torre Eugenio 2462 5½ 5½ FM Le Tuan Minh 2429 16
3 9 IM Ly Moulthun 2452 5½ 5½ IM Ramnath Bhuvanesh.R 2422 18
|Sep-25-15|| ||spawn2: Chances of GM Eugene looking good. Next game is scheduled at 3 pm tomorrow giving him chance to rest and prepare to clinch a win and set up a winner take all game against the front runner in the last rd.|
|Sep-25-15|| ||Pulo y Gata: GM Torre is impressive through and through. That he is still fighting it out toe to toe with the younger masters and remains a chess force to be reckoned with show his incredible endurance and discipline. A good role model on and off the board. A true Filipino legend and pride. Mabuhay ka, GM Torre!|
|Sep-25-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Sa Challengers eh Pinoys lording it over once more, after 7rds, Chester Caminong still perfect with 7pts, running 2nd is FEU HS Istraelito Rilloraza (they will meet in rd8 today), then followed by HS mate Marvin Miciano.|
Nasa grupo din ng 5.5 pts sila James Infiesto and Karen Enriquez
|Sep-25-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Sa recent na pag check ng Malaysian Chess Festival eh ok din premyo sa Dato Arthur, its like USD 4K? Kung di nabago. So wondering why previous GMs na sumaali last year eh di bumalik.|
Katapat AFGM eh 'veteran' sa ASEAN Age Group wars, and maybe just 'graduated' from the U20 ranks. When there's another win it would be an encounter vs the winner between GM Vakhidov and Indian IM.
GM Jay naka recover din from a loss and at some point eh 4.5/6
|Sep-25-15|| ||spawn2: Sayang lang pm77, walang pgns ng games sa Malaysian Open. Will try to request from GM Torre pgns of his wins if meron para we can post it here sa page nya.|
|Sep-25-15|| ||kamagong24: Go GM Torre!|
|Sep-26-15|| ||pinoymaster77: spawn2,
Honga walang livegames, sana nga may PGNs of won games, and puede rin maisama ditto sa CG list of games nya
|Sep-26-15|| ||spawn2: Science project, GM Eugene losing his 8th rd game. Pwede pa pumatak sa top 10 if he wins in the final rd.|
|Sep-27-15|| ||spawn2: GM Eugene winning against IM Nava with black in the last rd to land in the top 10 (9th) and earn additional 5 elo points.|
|Sep-27-15|| ||kamagong24: patapos na pala September, whadaya know...|
|Sep-27-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Sa Challengers, champ si Istraelito Rilloraza of FEU HS, 2nd si Chester Caminong and 3rd si Marvin Miciano. Total dominance by Pinoys, getting 9 out of the Top 10 places !|
|Oct-02-15|| ||Deadlost: off topic, and a bit of rant:
Do we have chess clubs in Metro Manila?
There are for sure watering holes such as these:
2. Alphaland (EDSA cor Pasong Tamo
3. Guadalupe Mall
4. Market Market - UV parking lot fronting STI
5. Puregold in Meycauayan
6. Figaro in Shangrila - Crossing, Mandaluyong
I mean, I haven't played any game of chess for two years now and I'm really itching for friendly fights, but, really, I could not find a venue where I would not encounter hustlers. No tournaments to participate in. There used to be Executive Tournaments, Artists', now im reduced to following chess news on the web. Pathetic.
The last time I came out of my hole (five years ago - and before that, another five)I won 2, lost 2 and quit.
Hey, is over-the-board chess dead in the Philippines already?
|Oct-02-15|| ||epistle: not quite. Nano and I played many games today at the Coffee Bean and he beat me three straight before I managed to win on the 4th game. |
Nothing, however, is really worth saying today
|Oct-06-15|| ||pinoymaster77: By next week siguro before the start eh malaman na final FIELD sa BOGM 2015.|
Wonder sino pa GMs makalahok
|Oct-06-15|| ||epistle: I hope they pick Master B as the wild card entry.|
|Oct-06-15|| ||pinoymaster77: Sa Challengers ng 2 intl events in Nov sa ULTRA, hope to see MasterB and friends in action|
|Oct-10-15|| ||spawn2: BOGM starts in October 22 with GM Eugene as the defending champion.|
Will find time to watch some of the games live.
|Oct-10-15|| ||epistle: GM Eugene is the defending champion. But the sentimental favourite is, of course, none other than Master B.|
