Thanks Bro Joey for keeping this thread. Wesley, and the rest of our young chess prodigies need all the help they can get. Darwin Laylo also deserve some assistance.

Hope they get it.

Calling Manny P. (Pacquiao or Pangilinan) and the Cojuangcos... You are sport enthusiasts. Chess, though not mainstream, is a some sort of a famous sport. Fischer and Kasparov are household names in most countries while Eugene Torre enjoyed an amount of fame during his prime.

"Wesley is Smart" - Pangilinan

"Wesley is a great role model for the kids" - Congressman Pacquiao

The race is on
Monday, February 22, 2010


ImageImage


Who do you think will be the first ASEAN chess player ever to break the 2700 Elo mark? (Please educate this blogger if an ASEAN player had already made the record.)

If the Philippines produced the first grandmaster in Asia in the name of the legendary GM Eugene Torre, I guess it would be Vietnam which could produce the first ASEAN player to reach the 2700 Elo mark.

The live ratings of the leading contemporary ASEAN players will show us the whole picture.

As of today (February 23, 2010), GM Le Quang Liem of Vietnam (2647), fresh from conquering the Aeroflot Open 2010 in Moscow,Russia, leads the race with a live rating of 2689, just 11 Elo points shy off the coveted mark. Next in line is the Philippines' Numero Uno GM Wesley So (2656) who now parades a live rating of 2665.3, or 33.7 Elo points off the target. Both GMs Le and So played in the Aeroflot Open.

We all know that 2689, not 2665.3, is much closer to 2700. As of this moment, some 23.7 Elo point-margin separates the two. Today with GMs Le and So out of the picture, the ASEAN quest for the 2700 race will just certainly be an absurd dream.

Notably, GM Le gained astonishing 42 Elo points in his last two tournaments. He gained 16.20 at the Moscow Open 2010, where he tied for first, and incredible 25.80 at Aeroflot Open 2010 where we emerged as solo champion.

GM So, on the other hand, gained not so huge 9.3 points in his last two tournaments, 4.7 in Corus 2010 (Group B), where he placed fifth, and 4.6 in Aeroflot Open 2010 where he placed 11th overall.

GM So's next tournament will be the Battle of GMs (BOGM) where he is seeded No.1. Being the only 2600-rated player in the country and whose rating margin to the next highest rated player is around 100 Elo points, he is not poised to boost his Elo standing in this tournament. Inevitable draws - I expect at least three - will surely make a stingy dent to his 2700 campaign. And heaven forbid, what about an accidental loss (with much emphasis on the term 'accidental').

Of course, GM Wesley has that moral and patriotic obligations to play in the Battle of GMs. And we should salute this young lad for keeping his commitment.

If he could avoid bloodless draws in the BOGM, much better. If his opponents/friends respect GM Wesley enough, it would be best for them to avoid the needless truce with Wesley. Oh please, don't drag the country's source of hope and inspiration down.

As I see it, Wesley needs at least three tournaments - provided he plays well - to breach the 2700 target. As for the Vietnamese Le, he only needs just ONE tournament - provided he plays well too - to achieve the historic honor of being the first ASEAN to realize the elusive dream.

We can't avoid the comparison. The race is on. And Vietnam is moving faster to reach the finish line.

Yup ... you're right bro flip ... especially The Chess Olympiad 2010 in Khanty Mansiysk September 19 - October 4 is fast approching. It is the 39th editon of the Olympiad, coming after Dresden Chess Olympiad 2008 and preceeding the Chess Olympiad 2012 in Turkey. >>> http://tournaments.chessdom.com/chess-olympiad-2010

We need to awaken & assemble our best in this tourney & start their training & preparation!

Here are our best (ref: Fide ratings List as of Jan 2010) !!! No need for the qualifying tourney ... start training & preparing them & PLS National Chess Federation Philippines (NCFP) provide them a complete Training Staff with a Head Coach!

The same Team we suggest to also represent PHI in the 16th Asian Games (also known as the XVI Asiad) that will be held in Guangzhou, China from November 12 to November 27, 2010.

Time is nearing ... no need to argue ... they are our best !!! :)

Philippines (Active players)

# Name Title Fed Rating G B-Year
1 So, Wesley g PHI 2656 8 1993
2 Antonio, Rogelio Jr g PHI 2572 2 1962
3 Laylo, Darwin g PHI 2556 2 1980
4 Barcenilla, Rogelio m PHI 2518 0
5 Gomez, John Paul g PHI 2507 0
6 Torre, Eugenio g PHI 2506 0 1951
7 Paragua, Mark g PHI 2497 0 1984
