Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-05-05  rjsolcruz: According to Business World chess columnist Bobby Ang in his bi-weekly column Chess Piece, which I am suggesting to be re-titled Chess Masterpiece, this win by Balinas was the turning point of the tournament. For he has already secured his GM norm and could have rested on his laurels. But the Filipino fighting spirit had him going for broke!
Sep-10-21  spektrowski: In his interview for 64, Balinas said, "Round 13 was decisive in the battle for the first place, when I managed to defeat my main competitor, Vladimir Savon. It was a very nervous and uncompromising game that was decided in mutual time trouble. After winning this difficult game, I finally believed I could win the first prize."
