Sep-21-11  bigatin: <So's page is indeed one of the most outstanding here in CG...When I visited it the first time,I was really impressed by those warm greetings and the cheerful spirit and other merits that So's page should boast>

<Ladolcevita>, Surely you are a learned man...a descendant of Plato...or is it Albert Einstein?

Most would see Wesley page the exact contrast and opposite of as you see it. And to them, I say:

Sep-21-11  bigatin: <kia0708: boring stuff>

Speaking of opposites, this one is evidently the exact opposite of Albert Einstein.

Here's kia0708 and his brothers:

  iking: <bigatin: <visayanbraindoctor: As a rule, I never enter discussions regarding GM Wesley So> and why may I ask why?

visaya ka nga doctor doc? ara kada sa TATE? dugay kana da pards?

Sep-21-11  Ken Toh Tan: <visayanbraindoctor> is the answer for these brain damaged wesley so fanatics buaaahahaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sep-21-11  bigatin: ken toh tan:

you will be the first patient of <visayanbraindoctor>

You need to undergo lobotomy...You can come with me to shutter island. We do the procedure in the lighthouse.

Or we could do it in the hospital "birds flew over the cuckoos nest style":

Sep-21-11  bigatin:
Sep-21-11  Boratco: <kia0708: boring stuff> Must be feeling green, blue and red, yes?
Sep-21-11  Ken Toh Tan: <bigatin> i recommend <sugardom> be the first patient of <vbd>.
Sep-21-11  Ken Toh Tan: asan na ba si <hatsis>?si <ibientag>?

  alexmagnus: <visayan> This constant "discrimination" of non-Europeans you complain about is non-existent. You say, "only" three non-Europeans became WCs? Well, correct - but "only"? 3 of 15, 20% - not bad for a game unknown outside of Europe for most of its history. Even now I think the ration of European and non-European chess players is about that... So, non-Europeans are not underrepresented/discriminated against, they are just represented the way they are.

Also, do you say European champs have less talent? (I mean your continuous mentioning of "enourmous talent" of non-European champs).

Sep-21-11  TiburcioTinio: Aye am handsome too!
Sep-21-11  Ken Toh Tan: <sugardom> is not...
Sep-21-11  Ladolcevita: <bigatin>
Maybe I am really ignorant when I said all those complimentary words,according to your flat reply<Most would see Wesley page the exact contrast and opposite of as you see it>,and certainly So wouldnt disown his page without adequate reasons,but in truth,I hardly go to So's page,let alone reading all those posts carefully.You know there were so many posts actually were written in Philippine that I naturally guess I wouldnt be able to follow the complete story there,and one wouldnt enjoy guessing clues between the lines all the time,yet somehow quite certain something has been missed already. So I may be wrong...but it is just a simple impression of mine from the first time I visited that page...

BTW,youtube was blocked here,so I'm afraid that I cant really follow you with that,and as for me,perhaps it's because I sometimes speak English in a remotely bookish manner,but I really wouldnt intend to project that kind of a profile...

Sep-21-11  Boratco: Those who chooses not to go a certain page indicated will not understand the summarized event of what transpired those days will continue to perceive and assume what really happen . Youtube has got nothing to do with it. It is written in plain English.

If someone can't follow what bigatin wrote, then I don't know what that someone can. As a non high school graduate, I manage to read "dumb ahss excuses, easy as 1,2,3" and it is written not the way I wanted.

Sep-21-11  bigatin: Ladolcevita: <bigatin> <Maybe I am really ignorant when I said all those complimentary words,according to your flat reply<<Most> would see Wesley page the exact contrast and opposite of as you see it>,and certainly So wouldnt disown his page without adequate reasons,but in truth,I hardly go to So's page,let alone reading all those posts carefully.>

My fault. I should have said <A few>(which is the real case) than <most> in my reply. Then I know you would not change your mind as you would then be on the side of the majority.

Now that I corrected it, perhaps you can change your mind? again?

To help you decide, I again refer you to go over page 4,570 of the Wesley page for your more careful reading this time:

Wesley So

Sep-21-11  bigatin: but we are not forcing you or anything.

Even without your vote of confidence, we know Wesley's horde of fans outnumber the few remaining survivors of the holocaust!

Sep-21-11  Ken Toh Tan: greatest chess player of all time:

1 wesley so

2 gary kasparov

3 bobby fischer

4 anatoly karpov

5 jr capablanca


barangay wesley

Sep-21-11  bigatin: Re<SO>dent Evil III:


ken toh tan as nemesis

Sep-21-11  Ken Toh Tan: ano oras dyan sa iyo <bigatin>?wala tayong magawa ano?
Sep-21-11  bigatin: nagising ako...nakabukas pa ang laptop...Time check 2:52 am...metromanila time.
Sep-21-11  Ken Toh Tan: kala ko nasa abroad ka...di nga..
Sep-21-11  bigatin: Time to sleep ken toh tah. I bid you goodnyte. Long Live Wesley So! BW Greatest Chess Player of All Time.

He's <SO> Fine:

Sep-21-11  Ken Toh Tan: balak ko mag sponsor katulad ni <bubuli>..

<ken toh tan cup 2012>

gusto ko round one si <sugardom> makatunggali ko.
