  Penguincw: Ding Liren is becoming a likely candidate for back-to-back Chinese Championships (men) won.
Mar-30-12  waustad: Both of the top 17 year olds seem to be having a tough time at the moment. Hou Yifan has lost to the two lowest rated players in the tournament and Giri is playing at a 2479 performance in Plovdiv. Maybe both need a little break from tournament play.

  HeMateMe: <Hay> my nick is a reference to a guy in pro football who played with the words "He Hate Me" written on his jersey. I think its a reference to the coach, who beat the guy up verbally.


I'm gonna get this trademarked, just like J Lin has trademarked "Linsanity".

With my sports agent <Shams> (who only gets 5%, BTW) we'll make a fortune in sports marketing. Right now we're bidding for the naming rights to the stripper basketball league that Dennis Rodman is trying to green light. Dennis wants the league, all female players, to just wear strategically placed tassells, throughout the course of the game(s).

Worm says "It will be done tastefully".

  Penguincw: Almost half way there, Liren leads by a full point.
Apr-01-12  aporia: To Penguincw, Ding Liren has already won back to back chinese championships and is now on target for three in a row. He has authored some of the most exciting chess games of the last few years, and one wonders when he will begin to appear in high-profile tournaments.

Not exactly. Back-to-back means two consecutive. He won in 2009, and 2011. In 2010, Wang Hao won the championship (see: Chinese Championship (2010) for games).

  HeMateMe: Yifan is tied with a bunch of people in the middle. Pretty impressive showing.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Natalia Pogonina: Wondering why Wang Hao isn't playing...
Apr-02-12  Kinghunt: Since when is being a half point out of dead last pretty impressive?
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: She shares the middle area with three or four of the best players in China. I call that impressive.
Apr-02-12  Rockhopper: <Natalia Pogonina: Wondering why Wang Hao isn't playing...>

Good question. There was an interview with him after the World Mind Games where he won the rapids. It seems that he is seriously studying, so maybe he decides against becoming a professional chess player.

Also, he has a heart problem, cardiac flutter I think. I don't know how serious it is, but it's surely not good for playing competitive chess. Last year he cancelled his participation in two top tournaments because of that.

It's a shame, because Wang Hao is currently clearly the best Chinese player and his games are very exciting.

Apr-02-12  Rockhopper: <HeMateMe: She shares the middle area with three or four of the best players in China. I call that impressive.>

I think that Yifan is one of the most talented players around - men or women. However, I can't quite agree with you. She is #4 seed in this tournament and her rating is only slightly lower than that of Ding Liren. In her last few tournaments her RP was almost always 2700+, here it is below 2600.

In her first game she was playing very sharp, obviously trying to outplay a "weaker" opponent, and that backfired. She's playing more reasonable now and she could still end up with a good result.

  HeMateMe: Well, the day is young. We'll know better how much she has improved, over the next few days. Chess needs people like Yifan.
Apr-02-12  jcnorcro: Help this old duffer out!!
In Game 5. Ding Lin vs Lu Shanglei...
Where is White's win after Black plays
24....., Qe7?? I just do not see it.
Was time the issue because B and P for
connected passed pawns should be enough.
Apr-02-12  plimko: <jcnorcro> 24. Rf3 with idea Rfg3
Apr-02-12  Shams: <plimko> <jcnorcro> 24...Qe7 25.Rff6 also crushes.

  ajile: <HeMateMe: I bet they serve that on the rocks.>

I've heard that Wang and Shilong are big hits with the ladies.

Apr-03-12  Phorqt:
Apr-03-12  Kinghunt: <Rockhopper> Exactly. Hou is one of the most talented young players in the world, and I'm sure we'll see a lot of fantastic achievements from her. However, this is not one of them. To call her result so far anything but disappointing is self deceptive.
Apr-03-12  spawn2: GM Bu is having a not so good tournament.
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: why are there only two pages of games?
Apr-04-12  waustad: <hehateme>Because they've played 6 games a day for 7 rounds perhaps, with one game missing?
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: Oh, thanks. I was thinking this was one of these giant tournaments, with 25 people, like in Europe. Mia culpa.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Tightens up a little. Yangyi Yu has made it a half point game, but Ni Hua is one and a half behind him.
