|Dec-23-12|| ||notyetagm: Ding Liren vs Lu Shanglei, 2012|
<qqdos: <newzild> Is the pun not the lament of Lu's mother!?! This game impressed the panel of Chess Informant to win Best Game of Volume 115.>
Yes, an unbelievably aggressive *and* sound attacking game by Ding Liren. Leko did say that the young man is a genius, or words to that effect I believe. :-)
|Dec-24-12|| ||rannewman: Whychess published an interview with Ding Liren: http://whychess.com/en/node/6196|
feels kinda awkward, he is 20 years old but in this interview he gives the impression of a much younger child. Maybe it's just bad transaltion..

|Feb-05-13|| ||Trololol: What do you mean rannewman? I actually thought the opposite.|
Btw how can I quote people?
|Feb-05-13|| ||Pulo y Gata: <Trololol>: Just enclose the quote inside this little <> whachamacallit. Like <this>.|
|Feb-06-13|| ||torrefan: A very handsome guy, this Chinese chess genius.|
|Apr-21-13|| ||csmath: Ding Liren mates Aronian!|
|Apr-22-13|| ||IndigoViolet: Not exactly, Mr. Charisma, is he? Let's face it, Orientals just don't play well in the West.|
|Apr-23-13|| ||Abdel Irada: <Let's face it, Orientals just don't play well in the West.>|
Way to convert a single instance into a universal law, <IV>!
Let me see if I can do this, too.

<Let's face it, Russian grandmasters are extremely comely brown-eyed brunettes.>
•[Look at a picture of Magnus Carlsen]
<Let's face it, Danes are rated almost 2900.>
•[Look at a daguerrotype of Wilhelm Steinitz]
<Let's face it, old masters lived in a black-and-white world where color hadn't been invented yet.>
I had no idea NonSequiturs™ could be so much fun.
|Apr-23-13|| ||perfidious: Good old <Indigo> doesn't quit, even after the admins have warned him to cease and desist from his racism, which is a blot on CG's pages.|
The relentless non sequiturs are merely annoyances for the most part, but this poster's sublime bigotry is intolerable.
|Apr-24-13|| ||IndigoViolet: Rules are for the little people. Geniuses follow a higher calling. |
I reiterate my point about the lack of Western interest in Oriental societies and culture. I dub this the Yellow Curtain. The notion that China can become a cultural super-power on a par with Britain and America is ridiculous.
|Apr-24-13|| ||Abdel Irada: <IndigoViolet: Rules are for the little people.>|
Midgets? Dwarfs? Leprechauns? Fairies?
Good luck with enforcing them.
<Geniuses follow a higher calling.>
That is true. And one other thing about geniuses: They never call themselves that. To recognize and proclaim their gifts is left to others.
<I reiterate my point about the lack of Western interest in Oriental societies and culture. I dub this the Yellow Curtain. The notion that China can become a cultural super-power on a par with Britain and America is ridiculous.>
Two words: <Bruce Lee>.
(Actually, I could also mention a lot of other names, but I'm sure a self-anointed genius doesn't need examples multiplied for him.)
|May-23-13|| ||ketchuplover: The Hainan Danzhou event is underway.|
|Jun-02-13|| ||parisattack: Ding did not fare so well with the Elite - but when he dropped down a notch, he was awesome. |
He just needs more international experience to move up further.
|Jul-01-13|| ||Drakodan: <Geniuses follow a higher calling.>|
It's pretty Dunning-Kruger in here.
|Jul-31-13|| ||JoergWalter: <IndigoViolet: Rules are for the little people. Geniuses follow a higher calling. [...] The notion that China can become a cultural super-power on a par with Britain and America is ridiculous.>|
China was a cultural superpower before America was discovered and Great Britain had fish'n chips.
Follow your higher calling but not here.
|Oct-11-13|| ||evlozare: awesome display of endgame savvy by gm ding liren against young sensation gm wei yi.|

Abdel Irada: <I nominate myself, <Abdel Irada>, for "Best Informed.">
|Oct-12-13|| ||evlozare: oh no, after that nice endgame win comes an unexpected endgame loss. lots of very strong chinese underrated players.|
|Mar-24-14|| ||capablancakarpov: It seems that Ding finished second on tiebreaks in this year´s Chinese Championship.|
|Jul-06-14|| ||Penguincw: I know it's kinda late, but congratz to Ding Liren for edging out countryman Bu Xiangzhi on tiebreaks at the 5th Danzhou Tournament (2014), both with 6.5/9. He was also one of only two people to be undefeated in the tournament (the other Ruslan Ponomariov).|
Liren gained 11.5 points and has jumped to a career high 2738 and 21st best in the world (also #1 Chinese player, passing Wang Hao).
