A few days ago it was reported that Indonesian GM Utut Adianto will play in the SEA Games due to be held in RP later this month. But now it seems that he is, in fact, playing in the World Cup, in Siberia.
Adianto confirmed his participation in the Russian tournament in an email to Pinoy GM Eugene Torre. This development has been welcomed by the Pinoy chess squad.
