"Battle of GMs" round 2 and 3. Dapitan, a Waterloo for Torre

Eugene Torre, Asia's first grandmaster and one of the most successful player ever to come out of Asia, may had somehow finally came to terms with the fact that in round 3 in Dapitan at the "Battle of GMs", he lost to a fifteen year old kid that virtually sealed off his name for good among the immortal of Philippine. We all know Napoleon Bonaparte. He conquered most of Europe. He fought many great battles but ironically, he was best remember by one, humiliating defeat at the battle of Waterloo, his last chance for glory, against a young and upstart military commander, the Duke of Wellington. Yet this defeat assured Napoleon the everlasting fame. Eugene Torre, the great that he is, will be somehow be assured of greatness, despite the defeat, because of a young super talent that may someday would challenge for a world championship. Cheers for GM Eugene Torre everyone, cheers!
