The Philippines is set to have another grandmaster, the country's thirteenth ever, after IM Rolando Salvador topped the inaugural International Chess Tournament Fermo-Porto San Giorgio, in Italy. Salvador actually finished equal first on 7 points from 9 games with GM Vladimir Epishin, of Russia, but was declared winner on tiebreak.
The fine performance there meant that Salvador earned his third and final grandmaster norm. Here's a win over the 2589-rated GM David Alberto.
