(on the left are the links to access all the rounds) and very often I meet new tournaments, usually play the same players with varying results among themselves, with the exception of Hou Yifan, who often lose many games. Personally I like the style of chinese players, always seeking to win with both colors. Sorry for my bad english.

  Nightsurfer: How come that <Wang Yue> has become interested in Chess? He learned to play Chess at the age of four (!!) because he would watch people play <XiangQi> in the streets during summer every day after dinner, please compare http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wang_Yue.

Therefore<Wang Yue>'s career is one more proof for the thesis that has been put forward by Professor <David H. Li> - namely the assumption that the stunning success of Chinese players in the international Chess circuit is entirely due to the fact that they are all weaned on <XiangQi>, that thrilling and fast and combative Chinese version of the game, please read the interview on http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail....

  Nightsurfer: Apart from <Wang Yue> there are more big names among China's RISING STARS who have first learned Chinese Chess <XiangQi> before switching to International Chess, namely the two female stars Xie Jun and Zhu Chen - plus the male top performers Zhong Zhang and Bu Xiangzhi , please check out their corresponding personal pages!

  Nightsurfer: In case that you would like to know more about that mysterious Chinese brand of chess that has been the basis of so many Chinese careers in International Chess, namely the thrilling <XiangQi>: 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 compare 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 vs Phan Thang> has been battled out on February 28th, 2003, at Hamburg, Germany, at the place of the Vietnamese <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 .

  Nightsurfer: The name-dropping, namely with regard to players who both play International Chess and <XiangQi>, can be continued: members of the club are the former coach of the Women's Chinese Olympic Team, that is Liu Wenzhe; the World Champion in International Chess 2004, that is Rustam Kasimdzhanov; the most handsome guy in the chess circus, that is Alexander Grischuk , and the former German candidate to become World Champion of International Chess, that is Robert Huebner , please check out the personal pages of these players!

  twinlark: <blade2012>

What's even more curious is that China hasn't reported the results of the 3rd Danzhou Tournament (2012) to FIDE yet, two months on.

That means that the disasters by Wang Yue and Yifan Hou haven't been rated and Wang Yue will reappear in the 2700 list on Wednesday on the back of his results at the Russia vs China (2012) match (which came <after> Danzhou), when his "real rating" will be well down, at 2685.

Also, Yifan will show up ranked ahead of Anna Muzychuk, who by rights should now be the top ranked woman in the world after Judit Polgar.

Curiouser and curiouser.

  Nightsurfer: <twinlark> & <perfidious> You have got a big point - as everybody knows who has ever tried to do business and/or to strike a deal with Chinese people ... yes, I do know that my posting violates <POLITICAL CORRECTNESS>, so just fu.. (!!) it, that fu...ng (!!!)<POLITICAL CORRECTNESS> - since my posting is based on personal experience, I swear!!
Dec-14-13  ex0duz: Congrats to Wang Yue for winning the Sports Accord Rapids, and for getting back the title of China's strongest!

I don't remember him winning any tourneys apart from this(and i think he did reasonably well at the recent world team championships).. where did he pick up all his points from? Was it against 2700+ dudes, or just all against like 2500-2650 guys?

  waustad: <blade>How a specific player does and how a team does are different issues. In many leagues, etams go up and down a level due to a year's results. I don't know about China, but sometimes players are loyal. Pia Cramling has played for the same team in the Swedish league since well before Wang Yue was born.
Mar-31-14  Penguincw: Happy 27th birthday to GM Wang Yue!
