Jan-01-11  pinoymaster77: Happy New Year!

I think GM operating Chesskidz chess academy and kasama GM Bong sa instructors...

Congrats to Elo Mariano, heard naka IM norm siya sa Spore

Aug-30-11  pinoymaster77: Congratulations on retaining the chess team title in Merdeka! And 1-2-3 finish pa mga Pinoys...

Dec-07-11  pinoymaster77: Mabangis ang umpisa ni nephew Elo with 4/4 sa Penang Open, including wins over GM Elect Dableo & Rhobel Legaspi. Still 5 rounds to go and hope can sustain form for another IM norm...
Feb-02-12  ragdecsap: nelson mariano beat the legendary joshua waitzin in 1994, a year after waitzin made the blockbuster movie: "Searching for Bobby Fischer".

Cheers and Chess.

  Petrosianic: I don't know if having Hollywood do a fictionalized retelling of your life story is really enough to make a player legendary. I mean it's not like finding a significant improvement in The Rat, or anything.

  wordfunph: as reported by Bobby Ang in Chess Asia Vol. 12 No.4

<1997 World Youth Festival: Two years ago, when IM Nelson Mariano was making a run for the world junior championship, one of his main rivals was IM Dharsham Kumaran from England. I knew the Englishman's coach very well, IM Malcolm Pein, and could not help kidding him that the Filipino was a lot stronger than his ward. Malcolm's reply surprised me - he agreed that Nelson was among the most talented in the group, but too bad that he cannot hope to win the championship. "Why?" I asked, to which he gave the simple reply "Because he does not have chessbase.">

Jan-14-13  pinoymaster77: Congrats to Elo d 3rd for winning GOKAK 2012 blitz event, besting some GMs. 2nd GM Oli & 3rd gmjoey.

Not sure if still playing for UP Mens in the UAAP, di nakita sa initial pics...
