|Mar-02-12|| ||Penguincw: Welcome back to 2700 Le Quang Liem!
Going 2/2 was enough for him to re-join the club.
Right on point!
Tomorrow, he faces Russian IM Viacheslav Diu (who also has 2 points), with the white pieces. He is rated 2484, meaning Le has to win, to gain 2.3 points, and stay in contention for 1st, as there are currently 11 players tied 2/2 and 21 players half a point back. Not a lot of breathing room.
|Mar-03-12|| ||Penguincw: Drawn! Ouch. He is now at 2697.3, which I believe is lower than he started with.|
Round 4 has him facing country man Vo Thanh Ninh (rated 2340), with the black pieces. Pretty much a must win situation. 3 players have 3 points, while he is among the 15 players half a point back.
1-0: -9 (2688)
1/2-1/2: -4 (2693)
0-1: +1 (2698)
Not the best, but it can only get worse.
|Mar-06-12|| ||wordfunph: "He is an absolutely new kind of chess player, who hasn't been spoilt by the games of Capablanca." |
- GM Evgeny Bareev (on GM Le Quang Liem)
|Mar-06-12|| ||AnalyzeThis: Interesting comment. Wonder what it means. Is he saying he's more like Alekhine?|
|Mar-06-12|| ||Penguincw: I missed 5 rounds, so here's how it ends out. He is now at 2700.2. Although he is a full point behind the leader, Ni Hua, he is very likely to finish second ($5,000), as a draw is sufficient for at least tied.|
Tomorrow, he has black against Sang Cao, currently rated 2529.
1-0: -7.2 (2693)
1/2-1/2: -2.2 (2698)
0-1: +2.8 (2703)
Must win (not that he can really catch Hua).
|Mar-07-12|| ||Penguincw: Congratz to Le Quang Liem for placing second place ($5,000). Really nice job. In the final round, he beat Sang Cao with black to finish just a mere half point behind Hua. Lastly, he has gained 5 rating points so far this season and is now World #40 at 2702.9.|
|Mar-13-12|| ||wordfunph: blessings on your 21st candle, happy birthday LQL!|
|Mar-13-12|| ||brankat: Happy Birthday!|

<Le Quang Liem shares his thoughts on the recent case in which two members of the national rowing squad did not return to Vietnam after their two-month training trip in Australia.>
|Apr-26-12|| ||Nightsurfer: In my foregoing postings I have underlined the fact that the career of <Le Quang Liem> has a lot to do with the deep-rooted culture of chess - namely: Chinese Chess <XiangQi> that is called <Co Tuong> in Vietnamese language! - in Vietnam.|
In that very context I have posted a POEM (!!) that <Ho Chi Minh> himself has written on that great game <XiangQi> aka <Co Tuong>, please see my posting dating from <May-24-11>.
In case that you would like to know more about that mysterious Chinese brand of chess that is called <XiangQi> aka <Co Tuong>: herewith the link that will lead you to a clip that the German program of MTV has produced on Chinese Chess aka <XiangQi>: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0NBX....
The Chinese version of Chess can be compared to modern strategic <tabletop games>, please watch a clip that features the climax of a game of <XiangQi> after having transformed the traditional pieces into units on a tabletop: Red army corners Black General, and that is the matrix of the dreaded <HORSE-CANNON-PALCORNER-CHECKMATE> - please watch the final moves in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_ef... .
The foregoing clip has transformed the final moves of the friendly game <Rene Gralla vs Phan Thang, Hamburg 2003> into a scenario of <Chinese Battle Chess>.
That very game Rene Gralla (Red) vs Vietnam-born <Phan Thang> (Black) has been battled out on February 28th, 2003, at Hamburg, Germany, at the place of the Vietnam-born <Doctor Quang Nguyen-Chi> at the square <Berliner Platz> in the eastern part of Hamburg.
The well-known <Doctor Quang Nguyen-Chi> is a mentor of Chinese Chess, herewith a photo: http://shaolinchess.de/svalban0.gif .
|Apr-26-12|| ||Nightsurfer: The game that has been featured in the <XiangQi>-video that has been aired by MTV, please see my foregoing posting dating from <Apr-26-12>, namely the contest between the well-known German experts on e-sports and electronic games, that is to say: Daniel "Budi" Budiman (herewith the biography: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel...)/ Red vs. Etienne Cedric "Eddy" Garde (herewith the biography: http://www.esport.de/wiki/Etienne_G...)/Black - please see once more again the clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0NBX... - , can be watched from the first move to the last check by following the link as follows: http://www.gameone.de/blog/2010/9/g... , you have just to click on the second picture on that very page!|
