  1. as usual…wesley playing for the Am flag but pinoy by heart…my pleasure to play wesley during his 25 boards simul in las vegas in the year 2013-2014?…the time he won the 1st millionaire’s championships…final 4….

  2. Just a general comment on this site. It’s so slow in responding to news events such as big tournament results that this is not dynamic. I.E> It’s 4 days since the semi-final match and not a peep from this site as continuation of this piece. Who goes to site with 4-day old (and counting) news? Doesn’t make sense. You have a web editor, it’s the least you can do.
