Sep-27-11  wordfunph: my signed copy of The Sicilian Defense book by Filipino Olympian National Master Glicerio Badilles..

Mar-26-12  wordfunph: Glicerio Badilles manned Philippines' board #1 in the 1956 Moscow Chess Olympiad, here's the story from Bobby Ang's Inside Philippine Chess Book Two..

<Campomanes was supposed to be the top board for the team, but felt tired before the start of the first round and asked Badilles to take over at first, only to find out later that once board assignments have been designated you could no longer change it!>

Glicerio Badilles is known as the "Chess Lion of Cebu".

Jul-16-15  asianwarrior: Were there any additoonal nrws about hischess exploits?
Oct-04-16  wordfunph: <asianwarrior> taken from BCM August 1980..

<He had gone to Lugano as a trainer for the Philippines team but when Hong Kong only arrived with three players the Filipino was drafted into their squad --- a unique happening in Olympiad chess history.>
