Corus 2009. Group C. Round 13.

It shouldn't surprise anybody that Wesley So and David Howell drew their last round. That clinches sole first place for So in Group C. I am not even going to put up a diagram of the final position because it was a draw of convenience more than anything else. Congratulations to Wesley So. This performance will qualify him to, at least, Group B next year. If So continues to play competitively during the course of this coming year, he may even end up in Group A which isn't a stretch, in my opinion. He deserves a hero's welcome in Manila. I think he is the best player the Philippines has ever produced, notwithstanding Torre and Balinas. I hope that I have provided some good coverage of his games in Corus 2009.
