RP 2010 Olympiad Team

I've just checked Olympiad registration site to find out about the RP squad and it looks like we now have a team. According to that site, the following will comprise both the Philippine men's and women's teams (in no particular order).

Abraham, Tolentino (Captain)
Gomez, John Paul
Laylo, Darwin
So, Wesley
Torre, Eugenio
Antonio, Rogelio Jr

Legaspi, Edmundo (Captain)
Perena, Catherine
Cua, Shercila
Cua, Sherily
Bernales, Christy Lamiel
Camacho, Cheradee

The men retain 3 players from two years earlier with So, Laylo and Gomez getting a guernsey. Villamayor is out and is replaced by another veteran, Antonio. Interestingly, the Pinoy legend Torre is back in for OTB action after his stint as captain in the last Olympiad. The skipper's duties go to some dude named Abraham Tolentino. I've never heard of him, so perhaps some of ourRP-based readers can elucidate.

On the distaff side, there's only one change to the lineup with Rivera dropped and replaced by another Cua, Shercily.

is this the final line up? or is it still subject to change?

Probably still likely to change.

Battle of Grandmasters going on and some of the women "selected" not doing so well.
Isn't Tolentino the Secretary General of the NCFP?

THERE WERE ONLY FIVE MEMBERS OF THE TEAM, IS THERE ONE ADDITIONAL RESERVES TO UP THE NR OF PLAYERS TO SIX AS PRACTICE BEFORE? PARAGUA IS NOT INCLUDED, I BET FOR HIM FOR INCLUSION IF THEIRS A NEED.
