"Playing Enrico is exactly like having your mild-mannered and soft-spoken neighbor drop in for a cup of tea, and then immediately after the tea, put a knife to your throat and issue demands for your wallet!"

- IM Cyrus Lakdawala (on IM Enrico Sevillano)

Aug-14-12  pinoymaster77: GM-Elect Ikong's nephew and veteran Age Grouper Kyle Sevillano makes it again as Shell finalist :

Literatus, Palero cop Shell Mindanao chess crowns

TOP SEED Austin Jacob Literatus bounced back from a fifth-round loss with a sweep of the last four games while Mary Israel Palero dominated her side to capture the juniors crowns in the 2012 Shell National Youth Active Chess Championship Mindanao leg at SM Davao Activity Center in Davao City over the weekend. Literatus, of Doña Carmen National High, rebounded from a setback to John Batucan by outplaying Adrian Llanos and Jimzon Trangia and stopping erstwhile unbeaten Jon Lesaca with the black in the eighth round. He then disposed of Kenneth Tabada to emerge solo champion with eight points in the nine-round Swiss system tournament sponsored by Pilipinas Shell.

Unfancied Junmark Baldesimo scored three points in the last four rounds, including a final round draw with fellow Cor Jesu College of Digos City student Lesaca, to finish second with 7.5 points and clinch the other berth in the national finals set next month at SM Megamall.

Lesaca also wound up with 7.5 points but lost in the tie break while Batucan wound up fourth with seven points in a tie with Neptali Batucan III and John Acedo.

Meanwhile, Palero, of Holy Cross of Davao College, beat erstwhile co-leader Exiquila Apao in the fifth round then trounced Jane Lagang and Kathleen Meniano to complete a sweep of the seven-round girls side and bag the lone seat in the grand finals of the fourth-leg of the nationwide talent-search sanctioned by NCFP.

On hand during awards rites were Pilipinas Shell’s internal communications manager Ronald Jabal, district manager for Vismin Mark Gayon, social investment manager Jackie Ampil and media relations manager Toby Nebrida.

Apao settled for second with six points while Angel Davao and Rose Aldovino ended up tied for third with 5.5 points.

Top seed Rhenzy Kyle Sevillano of Cebu City played true to form and swept the boys’ kiddies field, capping his 9-point romp with victories over Kenneth Honculada, Alberto Diolola Jr., Gino Asuncion and Aldin Ranario to join the other leg winners in the national finals.

Honculada won his last two matches to finish with seven points then nipped Diolola, John Balbona and Raymart Silao in the tie break to snatch the other slot in the grand finals.

Second seed Ezra Ocliasa of Mayor Luis Rabat Memorial School-Mati City scored 2.5 points in the last three rounds to top the girls’ kiddies category with 6.5 points, one point ahead of Ella Moulic and Joerlz Gimony.

Aug-15-12  wordfunph: from Philippine Daily Inquirer..

<"Congratulation to our very own International Master Enrico Sevillano for clinching his 3rd and final Grandmaster norm. You are the Philippines’ newest GrandMaster. The Ahedres ng Pilipinas family salutes you, we are so proud of you. Keep up the good work," said US master Ruben Ondangan, a close friend of Sevillano.>

  holdem33: congratulations ikong! adto ta sa tanan mag-pakal sut-tu-kil......
Oct-13-12  Shams: Nobody who gains the GM title as a teenager could appreciate it like Sevillano, who has finally climbed the mountain in his forties. Congratulations to GM Sevillano.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <Shams> There's also Ben Finegold who took a long while, the more so as we met in 1988 when he was already well over 2400.

Sevillano is a player whom I remember from late in my career (ca 1999-2001): not in the class of the strongest American GMs, but dangerous to anyone in a given game and did well on the Swiss circuit.

Oct-13-12  Shams: <perfidious> I wonder which player was the oldest to gain the GM title through norms (and not, say, by winning the World Seniors Championship)?
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <Shams> No idea; the only such record by age which comes to mind is that of Walter Shipman, who obtained the IM title at a then-record age of 53 after an outstanding performance in a New York Open. This may have since been surpassed, but I know nothing of that either.
Sep-15-13  pinoymaster77: Hope to see more of Rhenzi Kyle Sevillano, GM Ikong's nephew, to represent PHI more, like in the ASEAN Age Group, Asian Youth and then later to World Juniors, after of course going thru the national qualifiers.

Congratulations to Rhenzi Kyle for winning just at age 14 the Juniors Boys / U20 of the Shell Active Chess yesterday at the SM Megamall.

I think he also deserves to have his own CG site na, anybody knows how?

Sep-15-13  pinoymaster77: Maybe this helped BOOST young Rhenzi Kyle's confidence...

Aug-07-14  Caissanist: <Shams> I would have to think that the record holder in that category would be Nikolai Shalnev , who gained his GM title in 2001, at age 57, under (ahem) somewhat suspicious circumstances.
Aug-07-14  TheBish: Isn't it time for someone to finally write a biography for GM Sevillano here, and maybe post a photo as well?
Apr-09-15  evilkenevil: congratulations!
