<Of course it can lead to players growing to hate chess - I well
remember one of the top Chinese players describing the country as
a giant prison camp, which is probably not an entirely inaccurate
assessment. However, some people actually enjoy playing chess
and thrive on the lifestyle. My own first encounter with a Chinese
player was at the Vidmar Memorial in then Yugoslavia in 1979.
Chi Ching Hsuan (or Qi Jing Xuan , as he is now spelt, as the west
makes further attempts to come to terms with the Chinese
alphabet), then clearly the top Chinese player, made a promising
debut on the international stage. A lesser known fact, though, is
that his delegation included a 14-year-old girl called Liu Shi Lan.
During the course of the tournament she asked my then wife, an
experienced international with a rating of about 2200, if she would
play a few games to gain experience. They did, at various time
Of course with a seasoned international against a 14-year-old child

Liu competed for China women's national chess team for five times at the Chess Olympiads (1980–1988) with an overall record of 68 total games played (+25, =27, -16). She had the second best Rating Performance and won a bronze medal at the first board at the 27th Chess Olympiad in Dubai, 1986.
She reached her highest FIDE rating of 2260 in July 1990.
|Mar-06-13|| ||perfidious: Tony Miles was a canny one, only revealing his ex-wife's fate against that teenage girl after being shown the door.|
|Mar-06-13|| ||FSR: Strange. You'd think an experienced player rated about 2200 would be able to do better against a 14-year-old whose peak rating (some 11 years later) was only 2260.|
|Jan-24-16|| ||TheFocus: Happy birthday, Shilan Liu!!|
