|Dec-24-16|| ||belgradegambit: Jeff did get the invite to Tata B tournament!|
|Dec-25-16|| ||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.|
|Jan-17-18|| ||ketchuplover: Not fairing too well at Tata Steel 2018
|Jan-17-18|| ||MissScarlett: Nor faring.|
|Mar-13-18|| ||waustad: He's having an excellent tournament at the Spring Chess Classic A 2018. After 7 rounds hes at +3 leading the field by a full point.
|Mar-15-18|| ||waustad: He wound up winning the tournament by a point and a half, with 6.5/9, picking up 21.7 elo in the process.|
|Apr-28-18|| ||Penguincw: Congrats to Jeffery Xiong for winning his first game at the U.S. Championship game.|
In an interview with Maurice Ashley, it's revealed he's an NBA fan. In the playoffs, he has the Cavs squeaking by the Pacers in Game 7, but no chance of helpless Lebron getting by overpowered Toronto. I like his predictions.
|May-13-18|| ||Penguincw: Heh, stick to chess. ;)|
|Jun-01-18|| ||Penguincw: Jeffery Xiong recently competed at the Summer Chess Classic (Group A), scoring 50%, where he was the top seed.|
Still, I'm impressive that he was the top seed in a group of all 2600+ GMs.
|Aug-08-18|| ||1d410: Looking at this guys notable games... boring boring boring, is there any excitement to this guy. Magnus played some thrilling games at this guys age, any examples? Not too thrilled with this guy so far...|
|Aug-08-18|| ||JimNorCal: Don't listen to 1. d4 1-0, Jeffery
Just win, baby.
|Aug-31-18|| ||1d410: Maybe he should start playing with pieces then...|
|Sep-01-18|| ||offramp: His parents couldn't spell "Jeffrey".|
|Oct-22-18|| ||ketchuplover: 3253 at IOM thru 3 rds. Next up MVL
|Oct-23-18|| ||ketchuplover: Drawn goes MVL!|
|Oct-24-18|| ||ketchuplover: Down goes Rapport!|
|Oct-25-18|| ||Jambow: 2700 club looks sooner rather than later for this one. Very promising talent.|
|Oct-25-18|| ||SugarDom: I think I won 350 dollars betting on Xiong vs Rapport. I knew Rapport will push it and pay the price.|
|Oct-28-18|| ||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.|
