lostemperor: I'm happy to have met Ye Rongguang the first Chinese IGM. He now lives in the Netherlands but it seemed to me then, he did not feel very much at home in Holland. Also he doesn't play a lot of chess anymore but Chinese chess. He is a great guide and friend for Chinese players visiting the Netherlands. Happy New Year Ye!
Atking: <Ladolcevita> I met Ye Rongguang 2 times in Thessalonicky and Manilla. He congratulated me to draw a game vs one of his chinese friend and we becames friend too.
