Wow at least the Filipino grandmaster managed to draw this game against Kasparov....

Sep-06-05  rjsolcruz: This is the importance of the GM title in the Olympiad and any other team competition. Simply put, the title draws! We can't seriously believe that the winners of the so-called elimination tournament best represent the country especially when that elimination tournament is the only major tournament for the year.
Sep-06-05  rjsolcruz: As to this draw with Kasparov, I think that there is more to it that meets the eye. It is a draw against THE World Champion!
Sep-06-05  Resignation Trap: <rjsolcruz> Welcome to! I am pleased to see that you are providing us with a lot of information about players from the Philippines.
Sep-17-08  shintaro go: Torre and Kasparov met 6 times according to the chessgames database. All other 5 encounters was a win for Gazza, good thing Eugene wasn't totally shutout. In his day, Eugene was a match for the top Western players.
Sep-17-08  Manuel G. Vergara: Torre has just been crowned among the Bests in the just concluded President GMA Open Chess Cup held in Manila over the past week. In his prime he had played with Zoltan Ribli in the Candidates Matches way back 1982.
