Double GM Kills for Pinoys

Round 5 turned out to be a happy hunting day for the Filipino contingent in Bad Wiesse. While both Gonzales and Gomez went down to grandmasters Halkias and Georgiev respectively, 13-year old IM Wesley So and IM Darwin Laylo, on the other hand, scored victories also against grandmaster opposition.

Playing white, So defeated GM Michael Prusikin; and Laylo, relying on his favourite Scandinavian, overcame 8th seed GM Andrei Sokolov.

Dimakiling had a draw against FM Ludwig Deglmann.

Laylo's next opponent will be 4th seed Evgeny Postny. On board 6, Wesley So has GM Vadim Burmakin.
