  cro777: GM Jeffery Xiong and his coach GM Babakuli Annakov:

Premium Chessgames Member
  Keyser Soze: Hehe so tiny. Yeah US chess looking brightly!
Aug-20-16  gokusano: Xiong, Sevian, Liang and Troff will breath down the throat of the USA top 4 soon. Those front running four, still in their young age, have their glory days numbered by these upstarts. Happy days for American chess.
Aug-20-16  MCDreams: A happy day for you Xiong. Ugoku is now a fan. He will gift you with spartan chinelas.
Aug-20-16  gokusano: <MCdreams> is a wicked troll, the wrinkle one! Mc will gift you a kiss...of death! Don't get near to her, be on guard always! Ah, maybe she'll recruit you someday. Recruiting is her business.

  Keyser Soze: I think this generation including Wei Yi is the one who might dethrone Carlsen. Unless he gets bored and old and slip like Kasparov.
Aug-21-16  Strongest Force: I can't wait for Kasparov to say: "this young man needs my tutelage: pronto!":)
Aug-21-16  dx9293: <SF> He already gets tutoring from Kasparov through GK's Young Stars Program...
Aug-21-16  Strongest Force: I would pay to see GK get spanked by a top program in a g/3 or g/5.
Aug-22-16  MCDreams: The US sends talented youngsters while other countries send overaged piglets.
Aug-25-16  Isilimela: Well done Jeffery - that's an awesome score in the WJC! Wonder what Bobby would have scored had he played in WJC in the sixties ?!
Oct-08-16  Imran Iskandar: Congratulations to Jeffery for breaking into the live top 100 for the first time after beating Akshat Chandra in Millionaire Chess!
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: A future contender for world champion.
Oct-14-16  fisayo123: Top 100 at 15.
Nov-01-16  Open Defence: So he is the future...
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: Present imperfect; future worse.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Jambow: All right we have Xiong as our hottest prospect and he is 2660 already. Sevian broke into the 2600 club too. America has some promising up and comings in her midst and three monsters on the front lines with Nakamura, Caruana and So.
Dec-24-16  belgradegambit: Jeff did get the invite to Tata B tournament!
Premium Chessgames Member
  joeyj: He is in the list @ Tata Steel Challengers 2017

Jan-27-17  JohnBoy: 17 mo younger than Yi, 50pts behind.
Jan-27-17  todicav23: Even if Wei Yi is playing well in Tata Steel I think at this point Xiong has higher chances of becoming a WC candidate in the future. For some reasons Wei Yi stagnated for almost two years (at least his rating did).
Jan-27-17  sac 4 mate: Even when his rating stagnated, it did so at a higher level than Xiong has reached so far. Both these kids have enormous potential, but let's see Xiong break into the top 30-40, where Wei Yi has been the past two years, and then exceed that level, as Wei seems to be doing now.

A bit surprising though that there are still only a handful of Xiong's games in the database from before 2016.

Jan-28-17  ex0duz: Happy New Years Jeffrey! Gung hi fat choi, xing nien quai le! Excuse my poor chinese.. haha

But looks like you're currently tearing it up, i hope you win tata b and we see you in the A group playing vs the likes of Wei Yi who also seems like he will have a good result with like 1 round to spare and him being clear second and half a point behind So.

So is also part/half chinese i think, so it looks like it's a good time for the chinese/asians in chess, even if you are both from the US(you and So), while Wei yi is chinese national. I'm Chinese from Australia, so i can root for you all equally :)

From what i've seen of you in the tata interviews on YT, it seems like you're someone that i'll have to keep an eye on, and i think that you will go far in chess if you keep up whatever it is that you're currently doing. But remember, chess isn't everything in life, so it's good/healthy to also have other interests and other things you can fall back on. Here's to you and your continued success in your chess career and even just in general in life itself mate.

Jun-16-17  ketchuplover: best wishes at the world team championships
Jun-26-17  fisayo123: He's had a rough few months with the step up in opposition he's faced for the first time in his career. Patience to adjust is essential.
