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 ;)

ex0duz: All his recent elo gains was solely from chinese chess league? He must be crushing everyone.. anyone know of or have links for some good games?
   Jun-11-17 Nakamura vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017
ex0duz: <PawnSac:In the post-game interview they both agreed that the idea Nd4-e2-g3 instead of Nb3 is new territory.> Yeah.. I really liked this opening knight maneuver when i saw it being played in the game. I might 'borrow' this for use in my own games now instead of just ...

ex0duz: What category tournament is this? Is this the highest ever? There's like 4 players above 2800, and everyone else is 2880+, with only Giri being 2771 atm(he was probably higher when he accepted the invite?) Average should be like 2800 or just below it? haha that's ridiculous with 10 ...

ex0duz: THanks for those informative posts <cro777> Maybe they just don't care about Ding reaching 2800 just yet, and they rather him play as much as possible in order to get the most experience etc? And also use him to train the next generation and also make their chess leagues look ...
   May-23-17 Wang Hao (replies)
ex0duz: Wang Hao seems to be going through a tipsy-turvy period in terms of his rating. He can't seem to stay above 2700 these days.. and even seems like a real struggle just to make 2700 now :( What's going on with him in his life? Anyone know what he's doing? He's finished school/uni, is ...
   May-22-17 Gelfand vs Ding Liren, 2017
ex0duz: I think Boris has trouble vs Ding lately, he lost 3-1 to Ding in their 4 game match a year or two ago. Also, it's not just his age that made his play 'erratic'. He's still a great player, it's just that Ding has his number, and he was already in an uncomfortable position when he made

ex0duz: Ding the sole winner? Mamed sole second? w00t. And Hou Yifan finished strong too. Great event for the chinese players. Ding > Gelfand it seems, i remember they played a mini match last year or so and it was like 3-1 or 2.5-1.5 to Ding.. If Ding can keep this up, he will break 2800
   May-09-17 Chinese Championships (2017)
ex0duz: The top 3 seeds apart from Wei Yi are all rated between 2610-2615.. the rest are under 2600, 3 players are under 2500. How come so low??
   Apr-30-17 Wei Yi vs Huu Thai Le, 2017 (replies)
ex0duz: is the finish 13.Kxh7 14.Qd2(?) Or is there a better continuation?
   Apr-17-17 Yifan Hou (replies)
ex0duz: Finally got a decent picture of Hou. Congrats for the +2 start at GRENKE.. beating both Caruana and Meier! Hope she can come back strong after losing the match vs Ivanchuk, which was kinda expected based on skill/rating/experience difference.. Ivanchuk isn't washed up just yet, if ...
