Wesley Maintains Top Position

IM Wesley So kept his chances of a high placing in Bad Wiesse as he drew with 5th seed GM Vereslav Eingorn of the Ukraine. The 13-year old inches up to 6 points, with 8 others players, just a half point behind sole leader GM Al-Modiahki of Qatar.

Pinoy results were:

So, Wesley - Eingorn, Vereslav draw
Khenkin, Igor - Dimakiling, Oliver 1-0
Gonzales, Jayson - Burmakin, Vladimir draw
Gomez, John Paul - Degraeve, Jean-Marc 0-1
Cordts, Ingo - Laylo, Darwin 0-1

So's next opponent is Greek GM Stelios Halkias who already faced two other Pinoys in this tournament (a win over Gonzales and a draw with Darwin Laylo).

please, write simply Ukraine.

"the Ukraine" was used when that country formed part of the USSR and/or Russian empire (before 1917). Ukraine became an independent state in 1991 (after collapse of the USSR).

Also, the name of German town is Bad Wiessee (not Bad Wiesse) :)

I wish all the luck to your friends!
