|Nov-11-11|| ||wordfunph: from untitled player to Grandmaster, congratulations GM Lu Shanglei!|
|Nov-12-11|| ||Ladolcevita: Congratulations!
But I havent heard about this player before,anyway I just found out his Chinese name,and his QQ Weibo(one kind of Chinese versions of Twitter),according to that,he was born on July 10th 1995,in Benxi,Liaoning Province.
In view of his age,I think he's really promising~~

|Oct-19-14|| ||TITIKIZA: Junior world champion 2014|
|Oct-19-14|| ||sonia91: Congrats on winning World Junior Championship :)|
|Oct-19-14|| ||Strongest Force: I just saw the blitz-spanking Lu gave to the world champ. This youngster should have his picture put up here.|
|Oct-19-14|| ||Penguincw: Congratz to Lu Shanglei for winning the World Junior Championship (2014) with a score of 10/13 (+7,-0,=6), half a point ahead of Fedoseev, Duda and compatriot Wei Yi.|
This tournament has gained him not only a whopping 33.2 rating points to a career high 2566, but I believe he clinches a spot in the 2015 World Cup.
|Oct-20-14|| ||twinlark: Congratulations to Lu Shanglei in winning the World Junior. It does indeed qualify him to compete in the World Cup next year.|
|Oct-21-14|| ||Fiona Macleod: This guy is a world champion material.|
|Oct-21-14|| ||sonia91: Interviewed by India Times, he said he was thinking of giving up on chess and going to university, but now this result gives him the confidence to continue playing chess: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/...|
|Jun-22-15|| ||Penguincw: Congrats to Lu Shanglei for winning the "Albena blitz 2015". He entered as the highest rated blitz player at 2781, and proved it, by scoring 9/11 (+9,-2,=0) and winning it, ahead of 2 other guys on tiebreaks.|
|Jun-22-15|| ||sonia91: He also won the Golden Sands Blitz:
It seems he is a strong blitz player, it's remarkable also his 2nd place at Aeroflot blitz 2015: http://www.chessarbiter.com/turniej...
|Jun-22-15|| ||Penguincw: I love how he wins it with the same score both times, in the same country...|
|Jul-10-15|| ||Penguincw: Happy Birthday to Lu Shanglei! He didn't have too great of a birthday though, as he lost to Ding Liren in 20 moves. :| The day before that (R7, Thursday, which I believe is Jul 10th there), he drew Bu Xiangzhi.|
|Sep-15-15|| ||ambongtumbong: congrats Lu.. onward to the 3rd round of World Cup.. not an easy task to beat your compatriot Wang Hao on the 2nd round.|
|Sep-17-15|| ||AzingaBonzer: Lu drew with Topalov after the latter blundered a winning advantage. One down, one to go, then on to the rapids.|
|Sep-18-15|| ||AzingaBonzer: Lu has survived the classical games. On to tiebreaks.|
|Sep-18-15|| ||Whitemouse: Lu is impressive. Topalov has more than 200 points higher in rating.|
|Sep-18-15|| ||AzingaBonzer: True, but Lu is probably underrated. I'd estimate his true playing strength to be somewhere between 2650 and 2700.|
|Sep-18-15|| ||Chessgames Bookie: If anyone's looking for a bet on who will the Topalov - Lu Shanglei tiebreak match, try here: World Cup R3,Tiebreaks: Topalov - Lu Shanglei.|
