Just to let everyone know that the SYDNEY team departs for Manila tomorrow to compete in the Asian Cities. Team is Brett Tindall, Lee Jones, Brian Jones and Theos Rippis. Levi Descallar is reserve and Ralph Jackson is Captain. There are 35 team entries from all over Asia. No website as yet but we will try to post results on the Australian Chess Enterprises website or wherever. Here is some news to get you in the mood:

Good luck from me too.

Btw, "isulong" means to push forward. So the foundation is like: "forward Philippines chess" or "Advance Philippines Chess" (but not advance=rapid).

Also, Tagaytay is truly beautiful place. It's up north of Cebu, where I come from and where that bastard Spaniard, Magallanes, landed. See: http://www.tagaytay.com/

Word of advice: keep away from chess hustlers. They give you 5 mins to their 1 but you will lose your money. Guaranteed! And BJ, tell Theos to keep away from our women!!

Is there any site that you've found that has things like a crosstable or something like that? I'd like to know a little more than what the standings are a few days after the round has happened ...

I actually rang these people and was answered by a young woman with a funny accent. I asked if they were putting up the PGNs and she had no friggin' idea what PGNs were!!

Sorry mate, no other site I know. They don't have a clue really. See philippines chess politics is even worse than here. There, right, they've got actual shoot-outs like in the wild wild west. No joke.

I offer two possibilities for this:

1. They couldn't find volunteers to do things for love over there (surprise, surprise!) or

2. The girl is too busy chatting up with Theos and she thought PGN is some kind of kinky position .... :uhoh:

Theos Rippis (http://www.fide.com/asia/cities/photos/pages/PICT0138.htm) - Does he look a bit contented to you? Wonder what he had last night?
