  Check It Out: This <Ding Liren> guy has got it going on.
May-30-13  TugasKamagong: One player here has got his name rendered a** backwards. In Chinese the surname comes first, and it's that way for 9 of the players. The only exception is Yu Yangyi. Not sure who's at fault here. Probably not the the guy who created this tournament page, as he merely linked to the players' individual pages. In Yu's player page <Yangyi Yu> his name is inverted even if at the bottom of his bio there's a link <en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yu_Yangyi> that shows his name in the correct form.

  messachess: As I have said, it is inevitable that one day, maybe sooner than we think, a Chinese GM will dominate the FIDE wc cycle. This is simply because, for one thing, board games in general are big there, but also, with that many players and with nothing to do but play chess (like the old Soviet Union), it's inevitable.

  messachess: One has to wonder: China is not a poor country one one level. Will that mean that prizes there will attract top GMs from around the world to play in their tournaments someday?--like this one.

  messachess: <TugasKamagong> I'll bet you that it's OK to say it either way in China.
May-30-13  chessmoron: <<TugasKamagong> I'll bet you that it's OK to say it either way in China.> No. It's not acceptable in China. Family name always comes first and then given names.
May-31-13  jakaiden: Well, this website is not in China. And the names would be listed last name first in the database. Do you expect chessgames to accommodate the peculiarities of every language, Chessmoron?

If the track in Go is followed, the Koreans may not be far behind.

But China will trump at some point, if only because of the numbers. I am reminded of the old saying about Soviet chess, "If you send 10,000 schoolboys into the Young Pioneers Chess Club, you're bound to get a Spassky or a Botvinnik or a Petrosian out the other end.

The thing is, most east asians actually don't care for chess. Koreans, Japanese and Taiwanese take it about as seriously as tic-tac toe. Despite the fact that China has produed some strong players, the general attitude toward chess there is simply 'mehhh'. If you look at the biggest Chinese board/card games news sites, you'll find Go/Weiqi dominating the front pages, then Xiangqi, then chess. In fact chess often feels more like an amateur game there, as of now every single member of the Chinese national team is a university student. This would be unthinkable for the hundreds of Go professionals. There's the singular counter example of Li Zhe, who had to practically abandon his professional go career to go to university, Kamsky style.
