Report from Batangas, Philippines.
We have been here a few days now and Mark is training hard under Norlito's guidance and playing chess morning, afternoon and night with strong sparring partners. Note: Norlito's son is FM Paulo Bersamina, Mark's regular sparring partner.
Amazingly open sharing with fresh new insights into the game and we have also been discussing a good format for FGM to conduct future training for Malaysians who want to make their mark in International circuits. I think we really have something good here and our skill sets are very complementary.
Will let you guys know more when I get back.
ps: FM Paulo is 15 years old.
All my best for Malaysian chess.
