Is it old news that Eugene Torre is fighting to keep his place in the Olympaid team, even writing open public letters to the admin of his deserving on his rating and history. And two more such representations by him and he will pass the record of a Hungarian - and no one wants them to win because my brother-in-law is one - but I beat him and his cous in chess, so ha ha. I have the full text of his letter to admin if anyone is interested.

Eugene Torre is already on the Philippines's Olympiad Team, but as the non-playing team captain.

Well there you go, behind the scenes and openly he is staging a war to be selected to play. You would not know unless I told you. And that young Wesley So kid rating is above 2600, the youngest person to ever achieve - ahead of Fisher - wow.

It also does not take into account FIDE ratings inflation.

Some how the pieces are on the wrong board. I was referring to my Hungarian brother in law and his cousin - not Torres. Thou I have troubled Torres rep in australia, the highest rated Filipino maybe, wait for it Ed Agulto. It was the Fairfield Open, the only way I could meet him was in the first round. There was twenty minutes to go, I was ten minutes better, two pawns better and better position. Having won the opening of a scicilian playing black. Lacking big game experience I know sometimes I lose on time, so I simplified but once too often that allowed him to push ahead, I saw 5 out of 6 possibliliies and the one I missed was the lethel one. JPW and all the top boards were coming perving during their games. George Xie later showed me how I should have won for sure. Agulto was about 2200 then. Not bad for a beginner.

And have I ever told you about that real big one got away?
