May-31-09  Drunken king: what happened to Wang Yue? looks like his litle brother is playing for both XD.

Premium Chessgames Member
  parmetd: why is Hou Yifan not playing hte womens...
May-31-09  rgr459: ji dan = chicken egg
May-31-09  gazzawhite: Why is chessgames saying that the top 12 Chinese players are competing when that clearly isn't the case? It should instead say "12 of China's top players".
May-31-09  supertimchan: Chessgames doesn't admit Wang Yue is a top player in China.
Jun-01-09  gmhwanaby: correct, not a top player but the best player in china today.
Jun-01-09  messachess: Wow. Ding Liren (no rating in dbs.) and Ji Dan are playing (at least we know Dan is) way above their rating level. Fantastic.
Jun-01-09  notyetagm: Li Shilong vs Wang Hao, 2009

Damn, Wang Hao wins *again*!

5 1/2 out of 6 now for Wang Hao!

Jun-01-09  notyetagm: Wow, look at these scores:

Wang Hao +5


Hou Yifan -1
Ni Hua -1

Amamzing performance by Wang Hao.

Jun-01-09  notyetagm: Next victim for Wang Hao: Zhou Jianchao.

  parmetd: Ding liren already has one GM norm.
Jun-01-09  Dredge Rivers: Personally, I'm rooting for Wang Chung! :)
Jun-02-09  Ezzy: Great score by Wang Hao, but I must say he was extremely fortunate not to lose against Yifan Hou.

Yifan Hou v Wang Hao

Yifan Hou played 36 Rd4?? She only had to play 36 Ne3! and black's knight is lost because the rook on c8 is pinned.

Extremely fortunate escape by Wang Hao.

Jun-02-09  ALwoodpusher: Folks you have to go see the splendid game Bu played last night at Maybe someone can graph the final move (20...Qxd1!!)
Jun-02-09  supertimchan: Ni Hua is doing very badly.
Premium Chessgames Member
  hcbsb: A very interesting game was Hou vs Ding, 21...Rxe3! this deserves to be checked, then the surprising 23...Rxc5!

Guess the Petrov can be a winning weapon after all!

Jun-02-09  dumbgai: 2297-rated Ji Dan a full point ahead of 2700+ Ni Hua? Wow...

And yes, Ji Dan = chicken egg hehe

Jun-02-09  ronaldducalang: Why isn't Wang Yue playing?
