Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-19-09  rjsolcruz: John Daniel is the son of Aling Rose of Cebu and that makes him a legit Fil-Am. He visited the Philippines in July 2009 and played a series of simuls including one in MERALCO where he played with the RP PARALYMPICS Chess Team. Check out the photos at

He could be a GM in the future and how I wish that he could suit up for our RP Team to the Olympiad.

  wordfunph: <rjsolcruz> how young is Master John Bryant?
Premium Chessgames Member
Jun-26-12  DanielBryant: No relation to me.

  wordfunph: from Bobby Ang's Chess Piece..

<I was glad to read about the GM norm for FM Bryant. This 21-year-old Bakersfield, California resident is the step son of former Philippine national team mainstay IM Enrico Sevillano. Any protégé of “Ikong” Sevillano will surely have a style geared to the attack.>

  HeMateMe: Just 22, I guess this is his first USA championship effort.
May-04-13  Shams: Missed wins or no missed wins, he threw the house at GM Robson today and it paid off. The kid is a fighter and his games here should be well worth watching. Maybe he can pick up an IM norm.
May-04-13  dx9293: <Shams> Well, he already has a GM norm from the North American Open 2012, after tying for first in the 2012 US Open.

He is definitely promising. But I will add my customary caviat: "I hope he sticks with chess."

May-04-13  Shams: <dx9293> Thanks. After I wrote that it occurred to me that the US Championships don't satisfy the foreign federation requirement anyway.
May-04-13  dx9293: <Shams> Actually it does: National Adult (individual) and National Team Championships are exempt from the foreigner requirement. Those are the only two kinds of tournaments where players all from the same federation participate and norms are still possible.

The USA doesn't have a National Team Championship (which is a travesty), so the US Championship and US Women's Championship are the only two exempt tournaments each year for Americans.

May-05-13  Shams: <dx9293> Good to know! But what about the US Chess League; does that not count? By the way, Seattle are the current champions. :)
May-05-13  dx9293: <Shams> The US Chess League is played over the internet, so it doesn't count.
