RP Makes a Comeback

What a relief! FIDE ratings for Filipino players have now been reinstated in FIDE's ratings database. We can only surmise that the RP fed must have finally paid up. The top 20 Pinoy players are:

Paragua, Mark (2617)
Torre, Eugenio I (2543)
Antonio, Rogelio Jr (2539)
Datu, Idelfonso (2457)
Mariano, Nelson (2454)
Sanchez, Joseph (2446)
Bitoon, Richard (2433)
Barbosa, Oliver (2421)
Dableo, Ronald (2421)
Mascarinas, Rico (2416)
Garma, Chito (2415)
Nadera, Barlo A. (2405)
Salvador, Roland (2396)
De Guzman, Ricardo (2393)
Ramayrat, Cris (2370)
Maga, Mirabeau (2370)
Alaan, Vince (2370)
Chiong, Luis (2364)
Bernal, Eduardo (2355)
Sadorra, Julio Catalino (2351)

Jesse Sales, who visited Australia last year, is 21st with a rating of 2349. Among nations, the Philippines is ranked 40th based on rating average (2489). The country sports 5 grandmasters and 21 international masters.
