  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!
Jun-09-09  Ladolcevita: He is from the same city as Zhuchen,DingLiren,and Me:)
Jun-09-09  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. To Chess.Games.Com I could be wrong but it seems to me you have not a beautifull game of Ye Rongguang played in Groningen in 1996. His opponent was Van Beers. The game 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 e6 3.Bg5 c5 4.e3 Qb6 5.Nbd2 Qxb2 6.BxN gxB 7.Bd3 d5 8.Rb1 Qc3 9.0-0 c4 10.Bxc4! dxB 11.Ne4! Qa5 12.Nxf6+ Ke7 13.Ne5!!

How about Chi Ching Hsuan/ Qi Jinguan?

Are these latter two names the same GM?

I believe that Chi, the two Ye's (Ye Rongguang and Ye Jiangchuan), and Torre were the dominant GMs from Asia before Anand's star rose far and high into the chess sky.

<silvermoon: yes, but when?>
