Favourite player: Kasparov, on and off the board. :)

Playing styles i respect.. Karpov, Tal, Fischer, Morozevich, Kramnik, Geller, Morphy, Capablanca(for his natural talent/genius).

Updated bio as of 28th of January, 2017

Current players I'm following;

Wei Yi, Yu YangYi, Ding Liren..

Those are my 3 young hopefuls, and i think all 3 of them can challenge Carlsen to a WC match and have good chances. The other like Wang Hao and stuff don't seem as dedicated to being a chess professional and have other interests(like school/uni etc), otherwise they could probably go as far too.

Also a big fan of Nakamura. Waiting for the day that Naka beats Carlsen in a classical game.. otherwise i don't think he really has a chance vs Carlsen anytime soon.. haha

I play on lichess currently(imo they have the best interface/system, unlimited or even real time engine analysis, unlike, or at least last time i used :P), and only play 15/15 games or longer. Not a fan of blitz faster than that, because i like to have a drink/smoke or two and still be able to win etc..

lichess>>yahoo chess, which was my chess site progression.. i think lichess rating is higher than or yahoo, but they use glicko system, and i'm not sure about the other two but i'm guessing not because like i said, i wouldn't have a chance against 2000+ player at 15/15 on yahoo back in the day.. maybe i've just gotten better? i don't think so, but who really knows.. -_-

My account @ lichess =

Send me a message here or there if you would like a game or anything. I haven't played much recently, but chess isn't something that needs to be rushed and it will be there even when i'm an old man. Or an older man. Or whatever. I'm still young at heart, and that's all that matters ;)

   Jan-18-19 J K Duda vs A Giri, 2019
ex0duz: I don't understand why 19.Ng5 is better than 19.Nb4, since 19.Ng5 just loses a piece, no?
   Jan-16-19 Wang Hao vs M Kravtsiv, 2008
ex0duz: <<saturn2: >Generally speaking double threats are nasty because one cannot defend two threats in one move easily. Here 38 e7 threatens both exf8 and Re8. In fact here black can defend those two threats in one move: 38...Rf6. But then comes in the third threat 39 e8D> ...
   Jan-16-19 Tata Steel Masters (2019) (replies)
ex0duz: Like I said ding plays brave, and has chalked up another win, this time vs shankland in a great positional game. Outplayed shankland from start to finish and shankland was basically in zugswang In the middlegame even though it was a relatively open position and with 5 minor pieces ...
   Jan-16-19 V S Gujrathi vs Carlsen, 2019
ex0duz: Nice hold to vidit! Indias handsome young hope! I like him and hari, both smart handsome strong Indian players. Where is hari in this tourney? Why did they pick vidit instead, he's been playing weaker than hari I think
   Nov-06-18 Ding Liren (replies)
ex0duz: Congrats to ding! Worthy accomplishment. Hope he can keep up the form and not let it slip since he knows he got the record already. Knowing human psychology it's at times like this that one usually lets their guard down, maybe due to adrenaline fading etc.. Hope this doesn't happen ...
   Oct-27-18 Kamsky vs Ding Liren, 2011
ex0duz: Awesome attacking game by Ding. I remember kamsky also had his own game where his dual bishops pinned kramnik to death.. one of my favourite games showing bishop domination. This game shows bishop/queen battery with a checkmate dominance skewer(mate if skewered piece ever moves lol),
   Oct-18-18 Carlsen vs Ding Liren, 2018 (replies)
ex0duz: Damn so close and yet so far. Great defense by Magnus. If Ding could have won this it would have capped off an amazing run of form and gained him the max rating he could gain from a single win, maybe he would be 2815 or more after this win(if he won). It didn't seem that complex ...
   Oct-14-18 China Chess Kings (2015)
ex0duz: <Knock-out tournament played in Taizhou, China 24-30 November 2015. report: .... TWIC: .... Wei Yi beat Bu Yangyi in the final match 1-.> Who wrote this description? Who is "Bu Yangyi"? Bu ...
   Oct-14-18 Ding Liren vs J K Duda, 2018 (replies)
ex0duz: <qqdos> what suboptimal moves? Like 31.Re1 which was more pragmatic and still 100% winning rather than 31. Qxf4? This is an incredible attacking game from Ding, which he executed without hesitation or error. He had to walk a maze on a tightrope, and one error meant he would ...
   Oct-06-18 Wei Yi vs J Stocek, 2018 (replies)
ex0duz: Wow what went wrong for Wei Yi and how? Was he going for too much and went wrong due to team situation etc? To stuff up an attack so badly and throw all caution away makes me suspect that
