Pinoys warming up in Bad Wiessee

The 2008 Dresden Chess Olympiad is starting in about two weeks, but Philippines' squad is already in the heart of Europe for the final tests before the games start. GM Wesley So is absent though, making the team captain GM Eugenio Torre (2560) highest rated Pinoy in the starting lineup of 18.000 Euro worth Bad Wiessee Open. Torre is seeded 5th, while top favorite is Russian GM Vladimir Burmakin (2625).
