IM Cardoso of RP

| 4 | Chess Players

International Master Rodolfo Tan Cardoso of the Philippines was its first International Master.  He was the only Filipino to win over the late former World Champion Robert Fischer; in their 1957 match in New York.

He has retired in the 1970's and is now into coaching.  IM Cardoso has recently conducted a 1-day workshop for children in MERALCO, Pasig City as part of its 105th Anniversary this month.

The kids were taught of the chess principles in a very participative environment.  He is a wonderful chess coach and knows how to keep the children in focus and alert at all times.


God bless.
