GM Eugene Torre on Chess Development

I found a YouTube video of Asia's very first chess grandmaster, Eugene Torre. In the video he gave us a glimpse of what it was like growing up in a chess family living in a basically non-chess country, the Philippines of the 60's.

He reiterated and explained a couple of times the role of his family, especially of his father and older brothers, in training him in the game of chess.

With all the accomplishments he has made and the pride and glory he has given to Philippine chess, he never forgets. Truly, a role-model for every Filipino chess player to look up to.

Kudos to the people behind the production, Entrebuff.com:
