Oct-03-09  chillowack: <kurtrichards: Hexilon De la Cruz Punongbayan. Is he a Filipino?> That's a German name--I'd bet my life on it.
Oct-04-09  GalileoPiccolino: <That's a German name--I'd bet my life on it.>

Probably a Polish, Czech, Slovak, - or a Krypton maybe. The Black side player I guess is from Africa. Could be a Big Game warden is some African Safari-savannah.

Oct-09-09  I Like Fish: i used his name...

Oct-19-09  timhortons:

yes from cavite philippines, same province with wesley so.

hexie pictures and interview.

Oct-20-09  Cercatore: omg really nice queen's sacrifice!
Oct-20-09  kellmano: Lol to the finish. Would've been even better had the white bishop been on d3 beofre white's 28th, then black's king would have been obliged to take a walk along the eighth rank.

God I'm bored.

Sep-15-20  Brenin: A well-chosen self-referential title for this game, and a great demolition job by White. Who needs heavy artillery, when the clergy can deliver mate?
Sep-15-20  Brenin: 20 ... Qa8 was an obvious blunder, allowing the B fork 21 Bc7; 20 ... Rc7 first was needed. Then 22 ... e6 was asking for trouble, duly delivered by White. After 26 Rxd2 Black's position was hopeless, and 26 ... Bd4 only made it worse.

Agreed, must be the first time I've seen a pun that not only describes the game but also itself! The style of the game is vaguely reminiscent of the decider in Baguio, where Korchnoi ended up in a cramped position early.
