Oct-09-08  LaFreaK: Wesley So is under rated dog..
maybe He should be on 2640
Oct-18-08  just a kid: Two young guns playing one game.I like that.
Feb-09-09  gene1964: it would be interesting to see what they'll bring to the board if ever they meet again....

  mini cooper s: i'll bet my house on Wesley Barbasa So 100%
Jun-20-09  Winter: Still amaze after all these years.

Jun-20-09  Whitehat1963: No offense, but it's about as meaningful and predictive of the future as this game: Negi vs W So, 2003
Jun-20-09  Whitehat1963: Or this game, for that matter: Kasparov vs Waitzkin, 1988
Jun-20-09  WhiteRook48: deflection!!
Jun-30-09  just a kid: If they met again I would say So will be more likely,but Caruana would put up a very good fight.
Jul-11-09  granyid: if this is the game of an 11 year old, how about now.
Jul-11-09  kurtrichards: This was in 2004. Both went on playing quality chess. Caruana won Corus B and So won Corus C in 2009. So topped earlier (2008) the Dubai Open.
Jun-16-10  mayfel: so and caruana will meet again in july in biel

And here is that game, played earlier today: F Caruana vs W So, 2010

Mar-08-13  tolitz4x: SO BRIGHT!!! but today look at Fabiano Caruana He is now the top 11th elite player in FIDE with an elo 2760 (as of March 2013)59 elo pts ahead of Wes.
Mar-08-13  JPi: Obviously So has a great talent. But Caruana is a hard worker. Actually I will favor the second. Give So the conditions to develop and I agree we will have another young talent on the top.
Sep-03-14  mysql: Nice win by So against the world #2.
Sep-03-14  Pulo y Gata: Riiight. When these kids were, what, 10000th or so in the world?
Feb-02-15  pinoy king: Foreshadowing of the future.
Nov-12-15  kamagong24: great alternative against the Sicilian, might be better than the Rossolimo

  Robyn Hode: Wesley So is much better now. He may be even better than Caruana. He's now probably the only player that can play Carlsen and have a chance to win.

  iking: these kids have no inkling how great they can be 15 years after .. we have seen their labors .. Caruana @ #2 and Wesley SO @ #4 ... more years to come.
Dec-14-16  catlover: So seemed to get a lot of control of the board out of the offbeat opening. By move 16 he had a much stronger position than Caruana.
Dec-14-16  Grbasowski: Kids.
Dec-14-16  ChessHigherCat: If 19. Qxa2 then Qe5 and black has nothing better than 20. RxB since on f6 white wins a whole piece (ņahaha, as Snidely Whiplash would say)
