Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-12-05  rjsolcruz: NM Lobigas of the Philippines has a brilliant win that was featured in Sahovski Informator as one of the best, according to BW Chess Piece columnist Mr. Bobby Ang. It was said that to date, he is still the only Filipino to have that distinction. Why is that game not found here?
Dec-25-06  rjsolcruz: Reuben Fine's Chess The Easy Way was my first chess book and it was given to me by NM Lobigas, who was then working for MERALCO; Balintawak Branch.
Apr-06-09  rjsolcruz: In March 2009, on the occasion of MERALCO's 106th Anniversary, NM Lobigas was awarded, in absentia, the MERACLO Chess Hall of Fame together with other titled players who worked for MERALCO; GM Balinas, IM Naranja, NM Cabrido, NM Aguila and NM Cabellon. Only NM Cabellon is still with MERALCO and assigned in Manila Sector.

  wordfunph: <rjsolcruz> thanks for the i know a bit about Julian Lobigas.
Mar-13-10  asianwarrior: <rjsolcruz> That game mentioned by Mr. Bobby Ang was featured in Sahovki Informator in 1972 which also includes the Ficsher-Spassky WCC match. It is a Sicilian game against GM Mariotti in Skopje chess olympiad. I have a copy of that book but lost it later. I hope someone who has a copy of that book could share NM Lobigas game with us.

Mar-13-10  pulsar: <Chessdreamer> Thank you for the pgn. Nice attacking game; Black didn't seem to have much of a chance...
Mar-13-10  fab11mt: Interesting opening for the 2 time Olympiad. By the way, is Julian the same person as that high roller Poker player from Chicago?. Chessbase Mega Database have 24 of his games, I'll try to send it to CG.

Mar-13-10  pulsar: <fab11mt> Sir, kumusta po?! Long time no hear, pasensiya na kayo at limitado ang access ko sa facebook dito at gumagamit lang ako ng proxy site kasi bawal dito sa tsina pati youtube.

Thanks for the pgn.

Mar-13-10  fab11mt: Nice to hear from you bro <pulsar>!!

Medyo di ako na kibitz kasi may asungot na ingetero at gustong siya ang mapagtuunan ng pansin, kaya basa basa lang ako.

Ingat lagi diyan!! and post some pictures if you can.

Mar-13-10  pulsar: <fab11mt> Oo nga po, Sir. Pasyal na lang po kayo sa mga forums ng kasamahan natin pag may time kayo. Ongoing pa din po yung laro sa page ni <wordfunph>. Ingat po kayo lagi diyan.
Mar-18-10  asianwarrior: <Chessdreamer> That is the game I was referring. I mistook Mariotti for Michelli,a case of memory lapse. I am now sure NM Lobigas is happy that one of his good games is given due recognition. I hope it would be added in Chessgames,com.
