Chesspatzer blog and Philippine Chess Chronicles

I've introduced here lately some of Philippine chess blog for you to consider. Namely Malibay Chess Club, ChessPhi, Chessph (I wish Chessph had opted for different name), and Philippine Chess Chronicle. Another chess blog of interest is Chesspatzer blog. It is being run by a Canadian based Filipino somewhere in Montreal. One particular interest is his great passion for ICC and is always up to date about the latest games and results of Filipino masters hanging out on ICC. He's also blogging about North American chess. I also noticed that Philippine Chess Chronicles is making a sort of come back after 3 months of lay off. With the absence of official Philippine chess website, these are the backbones of Philippine chess on the web. These are the hungry artists.

In the meantime, back to battle of GMs. Though there are still two more rounds to play, it is not very hard to conclude that Wesley will win this thing for the second straight year. And how dominant this kid thus far. He was held to draw by determined IM Julio Catalino Sadorra yesterday though I personally feel that Wesley shows some inaccuracy. We will try to get the PGN of the Torre-Villamayor match up as soon as we can. Two seasoned veteran going up against each other always held of great interest to me.

I wasn't aware of chessphi blog when I created chessph, otherwise I would have had chosen another name. But since my blog is there, I might as well stick with the name.

Cheers! :)
