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: Promising young player.. someone to definitely keep an eye on. I'm guessing he's going to have a huge 2018, already had a great 2017. He will probably be a staple 2700+ player from now on, hopefully he can break through to 2750~ as the next step. IMO someone like Anand or Harikrishna
   Oct-11-17 Tarjan vs Kramnik, 2017
ex0duz: Sorry for double post but continuing on with the psychological part of it.. I think 'disrespect' and/or 'underestimation' plays a big part in it. IMO if Kramnik was playing vs 2600+ or someone younger, i don't think he would of played 30.Bf3 or even 31.Nxg3 since he would have ...
   Sep-25-17 Aronian vs Ding Liren, 2017 (replies)
ex0duz: <AndrewMD: I wonder if the other chinese GM are still there in Georgia with Ding Liren as seconds.> No. Ding said in one of his interviews that all the other chinese players had already gone home, and that he was only there with the trainer/leader of chinese national team Xu ...

ex0duz: <AylerKupp:As far as my estimate of 3 additional days I think I assumed that all the Rapid days could be played in one day and allowed one free day before the start of the Classic time control days and one free day before the Finals. The length of a tournament is also a ...
   Sep-24-17 Aronian vs Ding Liren, 2017 (replies)
ex0duz: <HeMateMe: Aronian has to be the big favorite here, but I think everyone thought So would beat Ding. You just never depends on which Lev shows up.> No, and no. Ding is the favourite here based on prior history, also the same for Wesley. If anything, Aronian is Dings ...
   Sep-13-17 Bu Xiangzhi vs Carlsen, 2017
ex0duz: <Ivanchuk, a great player for decades but what an arrogant arse he still is when he sees a microphone. Anand definitely a strong contender in that respect.> @barleycorn, what? When has Chucky ever said anything disrespectful or even something that made him look like an ...
   Sep-11-17 V Fedoseev vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
ex0duz: Wow. Naka walked right into that it seems. 7.Nxf7 was definitely prepared by Fedoseev. After seeing the results of the sac, i will admit that i like the position that arises after the exchanges too. It looks like it's really easy/natural to play as white, harder for black to find all
   Sep-09-17 R Rapport vs Wei Yi, 2017 (replies)
ex0duz: Is 60. Kh7 drawing, or is this endgame(3p+R vs 3p+B connected on edge of board) still losing due to that 'thematic breakthrough'? When was the last mistake from Wei Yi, or when did Wei Yi give away the last chance to draw? Was it 60.Kg7, or was it earlier than that? I don't trust the

ex0duz: <john barleycorn><ex0duz> what exactly are you trying to say? What do you mean? You had trouble understanding my post? I said it was risky for him, and wished him good luck. If i have to spell it out for you, when it comes to the chinese players who obviously want to ...

ex0duz: In this day and age of internet, women should have no more excuses about 'limited exposure' or 'no time to play' or whatever excuse they want to use. Where are the 2700+ female blitz players? Like i said, there was a study that showed that women played worse when they knew that the ...
