A short piece on Dimakiling

Rising Pinoy chess star 25-year old Oliver Dimakiling shows typical Filipino insouciance at what may lie ahead, leaving his fate to God:

I am concentrating on my chess career right now. But I’m not sure though on what to do next once I get the GM title. I’ll just go with the flow... whatever plans God has in store for me, I’ll live with it.

I suspect that Dimakiling's fondness for complications and tactics is also influenced by this quality. In RP we have a phrase for it: "Bahala na!"

This is a rather nice little piece by Mabelle Balmoja.
