I think Antic still can't get over his lost to Samar last night. Two straight losses against unrated Filipinos. That will surely hurt his ratings and ego as well :)But this lass from UST is surely a young woman to watch in Philippine chess.

50. b4!!

Teacher She's, WIM norm is virtually on the bag. Her opponents average rating was 2290.38 after 8 rounds, which means she only needed 4.5/9 to get the norm,provided her last round opponent was at least rated around 2000. JJ De Ramos needs at least 1.5/2, same with Raul Samar, provided though that De Ramos meets someone rated 2300+ in the last round while Raul Samar is 2050+, he can also afford a 1 out of 2 result to get the norm provided he meets a 2420+ player as his final assignment.

Sherily Cua is a long time varsity player from UST. I'm not sure if she's still playing for that University all I know is she's the one who's giving FEU, their rival and my Alma Mater a lot of head aches in recent inter college chess tournaments. She's a man eater actually.
