Just win, baby.

Aug-31-18  1d410: Maybe he should start playing with pieces then...

  offramp: His parents couldn't spell "Jeffrey".

Oct-25-18  Jambow: 2700 club looks sooner rather than later for this one. Very promising talent.
Premium Chessgames Member
  SugarDom: I think I won 350 dollars betting on Xiong vs Rapport. I knew Rapport will push it and pay the price.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Calli: Xiong is up about 20 points to 2675 on his Isle of Man results. #69 in the world and I guess the youngest member of the top 100. Has white against Gawain Jones in the last Rd.
Mar-20-19  JimNorCal: "His parents couldn't spell "Jeffrey""

I noticed that too. Oh well, using unusual name spellings is fashionable now. They can say "we meant to do that"

Premium Chessgames Member
  parmetd: This is how my parents spelled my brother's middle name... it's just a less popular spelling alternative.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Sally Simpson: ***

'Jeffrey'or 'Jeffery' is actually the lower working classes way of spelling it.

The correct way is 'Geoffrey' and I should know.

(insert smug gums emoji)

It says Geoffrey on my Birth certificate but I sold the 'REY' to Guillermo Rey


Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: The lowest-class name around is "Micheal", a name given by parents that are so stupid they cannot even spell the name they want to give their son.
Premium Chessgames Member
  SugarDom: <offramp: The lowest-class name around is "Micheal", a name given by parents that are so stupid they cannot even spell the name they want to give their son>

It's the Chinese pronunciation.
