So Young, So Good!

Indeed So young, So Good. Wesley So, the youngest Filipino grandmaster in the world at the age of 14, topped the latest 10th Dubai Chess Open besting other fellow GM's Gagunashvili, Chao, and Ghaem after tie break computation in the last round of the said tournament. I have mentioned Wesley So earlier here in this blog because of his wit and mastery of the game of chess. This is really another Filipino we should be proud of. The competition was attracted 131 players including 24 GM's. So, won the first five rounds of the events after losing in the sixth round to tormentor Gagunashvili, won the seventh game and drew the last two games.

Earlier in the tournament, so also settled for the bronze (3rd place) in the filler event Blitz game. Wesley So will be heading to Indonesia with his father for a match with fellow GM Megaranto Susanto. Let us watch out for this chess genius and prodigy for more glory that he will bring to our country. Go Wesley So!
