|Nov-22-05|| ||VishyFan: surprise! surprise! Shakh has played 12 moves so far in the last round game with jan smeets, i expected a draw inside 10 moves.. :)|
|Nov-22-05|| ||DCP23: A draw.
Shakh wins the Junior Championship!
|Nov-22-05|| ||VishyFan: Li Chao(b) finished with a score of 8.5/13......., he is set to gain a whooping 132 ELO points.....|
|Nov-23-05|| ||nsteinme: The official list has Li Chao gaining only 54 points (only 54!? still amazing).|
|Nov-23-05|| ||VishyFan: <nsteinme> the official list just defaults the 'k' factor for everybody to 10, which is not the case with Li Chao...|
his current K-factor is 25.......
so, 5.38 X 25 = 134.5 ELO gain, which is whoooooooping!
is this some sort of record?
|Nov-23-05|| ||lostemperor: <VishyFan> Li Chao performance is awesome but there is a boy who gained more this year. Gaston Needleman. He gained over 150 points at Buenos Aires. I hope and think we hear more of them both. |
Btw. what's that (B) behind Li Chao name stands for? I see that also in the official list.
|Nov-23-05|| ||alexapple: There is another male chess player in China with the exactly the same name of Li Chao and the same characters and of course the same pronounciation.|
Maybe you hv noticed that,In China, there are two female chess player with "same" name of Wang Yu. BUT the "Yu" corresponeds diffrent Chinese characters and different tones.
(In China, almost every (NOT ALL) character has its normal tone. there are 4 tones in Chinese offical language,also called PUTONGHUA. so in most cases one prounciation corresponds 4 tones and corresponds mutiple characteres. )
|Nov-23-05|| ||lostemperor: <alexapple> maybe we should call this player Li Chao(A):). I notice chessgames.com has some problems with Chinese names also sometimes. Xie used to be confused with Xu. Here an example with a respected kibitzer <whitehead1963> Xie Jun vs Wang Lei, 2000 Sorry that is whitehat1963. Now I got confused here:)|
You know what the most frequent name in the databas is? Tan. http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches... With 15 million Tans in the world that may not be so surprising. Four of them use to be one and the same person! It is corrected now. There use to be a <"Tan", "Tan Huang Luang", "Tan H.L."> and Tan Hiong Liong who were one and the same person LOL. No wonder there are so many Tans;). Now I only see two Tans who are one and the same person. Lian-Ann Tan and Tan Lian Ann. I guess..
|Nov-26-05|| ||yalie: why didnt koneru humpy play in the boys' section?|
|Nov-26-05|| ||Udit Narayan: <yalie> LOL!|
|Nov-29-05|| ||Knight13: Man... I'm gonna work my hardest to become the future World Junior Champion! :). I'm gonna reach 2500 in no time!|
|Nov-29-05|| ||alicefujimori: One thing that annoys me about the record of the Chinese players' names is that they don't differentiate which one is the surname and which one is the actual name. In case a lot of you don't know, in Chinese the surname actually comes first before the name. So for example...Xie Jun..."Xie" is actually the surname and "Jun" is actually the name. Like "Li Chao". "Li" is actually the surname and "Chao" is actually the name.|
So it would be nice if the people doing these pgns and tournament records could record the Chinese names properly.
|Nov-30-05|| ||Knight13: <alicefujimori> Well you know what? "Xie Jun" in Chinese is "Jun Xie." Chinese put the last name first, followed by the first name, unlike we do the opposite. It's different countries, man. Different culture. Accept it. The Chinese might even think we got weird names and we write our names strangely ;)|
|Nov-30-05|| ||notsodeepthought: <Knight13>: <<alicefujimori>... It's different countries, <man>. Different culture. Accept it.> Hmmm, I could be mistaken, but speaking of "different cultures", in most countries where <Alice> is a first name, that person is not a <man>... you may want to "accept" that too.|
|Dec-01-05|| ||sneaky pete: <notsodeepthought> Go tell that to Alice Cooper and see if he accepts it, man!|
|Dec-01-05|| ||notsodeepthought: <sneaky pete: <notsodeepthought> Go tell that to Alice Cooper and see if he accepts it, <man>!> I knew that was coming... but seriously, how many other guys whose first name is Alice do you know?
(incidentally, how would you know whether I am a guy or not?)|
|Dec-01-05|| ||Knight13: <notsodeepthought> Okay <<man>>. We got it. It's cool <<man>>. It's cool.|
|Dec-01-05|| ||Knight13: <notsodeepthought> I mean, come on, man! Don't you hear people say, "What's up, man? How's it goin', buddy?" Saying "man" is how people talk. It's not saying that you're a "man" or something. Another: "Hey, man, you got somethin' ta say?" It's just the cool-talkin'-style some people use. ;)|
|Dec-01-05|| ||notsodeepthought: <Knight13> I guess I'm not cool. Fortunately I don't sound retarded either.|
|Dec-02-05|| ||Knight13: <notsodeepthought> True. Not everone's like that.|
|Jan-10-06|| ||Laskerfan82: Shahriyar won this tournament very convincingly ... it felt like he was in a different league altogether. Should be interesting to see how he performs in Corus (albeit last minute notice)|
|Apr-29-06|| ||Danny121: You suke|
|Apr-29-06|| ||technical draw: Knight 13 should not reply after notsodeepthought. It looks like the poor mouse will get will be burned with hot coffee!|
|Dec-19-06|| ||notyetagm: Mamedyarov went like an undefeated +8 in this tournament. Anyone know what his Tournamnet Performance Rating (TPR) was for this excellent performance? |
At one point I believe Mamedyarov's TPR was over 3000(!), before he coasted home to win easily with draws in the later rounds.
|Aug-15-10|| ||notyetagm: With this tournament win Mamedyarov becomes the only **2-time** winner of the World Junior Championship.|
