  1. You must feel very dumb when you realize as an institution that you could have arguably the best chess player in the world right now and because you didn't support him now he's playing for the us. I mean, 56 games without losing, amazing.

  2. Mah boy Wethley Tho pulling through ;).
    Just kidding, but he really is an amazing player.

  3. emigrante, que saca cara por Estados unidos que dira Trump

  4. Congratulations Wesley So, very strong and steady performance !

  5. "thank the lord. all the glory goes to him." i believe the only book unrelated to chess he reads is bible.

  6. congratz GM SO! proud of you being filipino! mabuhay!!!

  7. Obviously Wesley is using Stockfish in his games. Dirty cheater.

    But seriously 56 games without losing, wtf?!

  8. US is very close to having three players over 2800 at the same time. That would be a first. Wesley is now US number one. It's just too sweeeeeeet!

  9. On the contrary Wesley So will get his U.S. Citizenship quite very quickly for a hardworking well deserved victory a pride to be a FilAm and Trump our President will make this a reality!!!

  10. Wesley is becoming a Monster ! This guy will be world champion !

  15. Pinoy in the house!!!!!!! Wesly So the Grand Master originally from the Philippines but representing U.S.. thats whats up!! Hell yeah!! So. Keep going man.. Sky is the limit

  16. His speech impediment seems so easy to correct. I wonder if he has talked at all with a speech therapist.

  17. Anna has made a great job interviewing the players, she's so fresh! Anna hizo un exclenete trabajo entrevistando a los jugadores y comentando las partidas, es muy fresca!

  18. The Philippines was too corrupt to support chess in any way. But now, maybe The Best President in the World: DU30, and The Best Chess Player in the World: Wesley So, can change the minds of Filipinos worldwide and build our very first Wesley So Chess University.
