Philippines "Battle of GMs" day 1 results. Villamayor, no more the mentor

Round 1 only saw 2008 Singapore Open chessfest winner IM Richard Bitoon upsets GM Mark Paragua. If my memory serves me correctly, GM Bong Villamayor has never won a single game against Wesley in their four previous encounter, loosing three straight in the process. Not being very nice to his many time coach and mentor in international competitions :)

1. W. So vs. B. Villamayor 1-0
2. E. Torre vs. R. Nolte 1/2 - 1/2
3. J.P. Gomez vs. J. Gonzales 1- 0
4. M. Paragua vs. R. Bitoon 0-1
5. R. Antonio vs. J.C. Sadorra 1-0
6. D. Laylo vs. R. Dableo 1/2 - 1/2

Scores as of Round 1

IM BITOON 2.0
GM GOMEZ 2.0
GM SO 2.0
GM ANTONIO 2.0
GM LAYLO 1.0
GM TORRE 1. 0
IM NOLTE 1.0
IM DABLEO 1.0
IM SADORRA 1.0
GM VILLAMAYOR 0
GM GONZALES 0
GM PARAGUA 0

I think they've met 5 times already but yes I think so too that villamayor hasn't scored a single win against wesley.

I think Villamayor should waive his grandmaster title and go back to basics again!..He has a VERY POOR performance since the Olympiad and he should train/study more!..

how come that the winners scored two points when they fought for only one round?

It would be nice if someone posted
the actual games somewhere. Regrettably, this tournament has
zero coverage on the Web. It's
a chance for this blog to become more popular .
