Jun-05-09  joebuck: A great win for Ding Liren!
Jun-06-09  VaselineTopLove: The knight first on d6 and then on b6 proved to be a thorn for black.
Jun-06-09  notyetagm: It would just be a sensation if Ding Liren were to win this tournament.

Does anyone know how old he is?

Jun-06-09  Zhijun: //Ding is 16.5 now,born in 1992.He is now a highschool-boy only. //In fact,Ding Liren was 7th in 2008 Chinese Championship Group A,so he remains in Group A 2009. //By the way,A lot of Chinese juniors(under 2500) and girls(under 2350)players are most underrated in the world,because they are lack of opportunites to participate the opens or tournaments like Russian and European players.If Ding have the same opportunites as Carlson,He will absolutely be as strong as Carlson. //In China,chess is not popular in all,the reason is that people usually play Chinese chess(XiangQi£©and Go.Believe it or not, almost every little boy can play Chinese chess but not chess. //As you know or not,China has 1.4 billion peoples,that means more than 1 billion peoples can play Chinese chess.
Jun-06-09  visayanbraindoctor: 11...e5 by Wang looks like a pretty acceptable thematic break at first. However, Ding's 13. e6 and 15. e4 broke up the center. Wang then moved his rook away from the e-file 15... Rf8; and White moved his rook right on it 17. Re1. After 19. exd5 exd5, Ding got an open highway for his rook up the e-file, while Black's bishop still remained undeveloped. Wang probably underestimated the resulting positions after his attempt at the thematic break. He seems to have been thinking of conjuring up an attack on the f-file, but Ding simply exchanged off the Queens. The thematic sacrifice Bxh3 that Wang was probably also thinking of never got off the ground.

Jun-10-09  capatal: That youngster, Ding Liren, won the event with 8½/11 and a near-2800 TPR, defeating Wang Hao in the penultimate round to put a cap on an incredible tournament. He received a terrible gift in the last round (a forfeit win when his opponent showed up a couple of minutes late), but considering that he was undefeated and beat three of the four highest-rated players in the tournament, his success was no fluke. -

I think he is a HUGE talent! I wish he could get more experience against GMs outside of China. His playing style is very special.

Is Chinese chess bigger than Go in China?

Nov-24-09  arnaud1959: A game full of tactics. The final position is instructive: White threatens a4-a5-a6+ and Rc8#

A deeply conceived sacrifice that reveals a real talent. I hope Ding Liren gets invited to European chess tournaments.
