Pinoys in Dubai 2006

We owe our friend Goran for directing our attention to this tournament. There are a number of Pinoys playing here including Mark Paragua, seeded 3, GM Nelson Mariano and that young sensation FM Wesley So.

See official website.

And here are a couple of news reports of Wesley's fantastic effort: The Manila Times, Sun Star.

Where are the pinoys in Dubai 2006?
Paragua, Mariano and So are not in Dubai 2006.

Good question. But their names were listed in the player list a few days ago. Maybe they didn't make it.
