Dallas Vs. Miami

dallas-mavericks-logo.gif vs. miami-heat.gif

And only two teams stood the tide. One from the east, and one from the west. Watch the two teams battle each other in another best-of-seven series. Surely, it would be another one of those dramatic series we have followed through the years in NBA. Go Dallas! Bwahahaha

About Wesley So

An article in The Manila Times states that he once appeared in a TV commercial for a popular brand as a “gifted child,” (Promil Kid, I suppose). And now, Wesley So has proved his genius by becoming the youngest member of the national men’s team to the 37th Chess Olympiad from May 19 to June 5, 2006 in Turin, Italy.

So is currently a FIDE master at an age of 12 years. The Chess Olympiad is a six-man team representing each country against other countries. In a Kibitzer’s corner in one of So’s games in, the young So conducted a 20-board Simul play in Meralco last March 13, 2006. The 12-year-old wiz kid scored 19.5 in 20 games against 20 opponents whose accumulated age could be over 500 years.

Firing Lane

Firing LaneI had this opportunity to shoot in Firing Lane in SM Manila last Sunday (April 23, 2006). It was my first time to shoot in this game. For a fee of P30 I was provided with 8 bullets to shoot at the target. I highlighted my shots in this image.

It was terrific, one of my shots actually hit bull’s eye, while another was really that close. As a prize, I was given a 30 minute free computer/internet/gaming usage at Netopia.

Quiet Move

Online chessDo not be afraid to make a quiet move in chess, agression does not mean straight ahead. Sometimes you have to go back to go forward – yield and overcome.

Michael Jordan

I have missed more than 9,000 shots.

On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot… and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that’s precisely why I succeed.
