  1. Hearing news like this made me proud of being pinoy. i know we filipinos have great talents and all we need is focus determination. i am also an avid chess fan – and hope other IMs like mascarinas & barcenilla would get their GM title they are chasing since the 90s. I hope in the next chess olympiad we will land on the top 10 with Torre, antonio, paragua, so, laylo, gonzales

  2. yes i am, in fact master Val can’t win against me when we were playing online in kasparovchess.com during our early manabat days. I lose interest in chess when nobody in the office can beat me. Perhaps if you were already there during those days i’m into a good matchup (don’t know though if your that good)….hehehe.
