Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-17-16  UrVileWedge: I haven't really been following the Chinese chess scene, but is there a reason Bu Xiangzhi isn't playing? I would have thought he'd easily be strong enough to qualify.

  Penguincw: Weird to see a lot of top Chinese players absent. I know Li Chao is at Norway, so he can't play, but not sure about others.

Should still be a great tournament nonetheless.

Apr-17-16  dumbgai: Ding Liren: match with Wesley So
Li Chao: Norway
Yu Yangyi: probably busy with school
Wang Hao: inactive/retired
Wang Yue: unknown
Bu Xiangzhi: unknown
Hou Yifan: school
Apr-18-16  Doniez: Wang Hao played until last Friday 4/15 the Chinese league, scoring 3,5/4
Apr-18-16  starry2013: I thought Li Chao was banned from Chinese events for now anyway?
Apr-18-16  sonia91: Wang Hao also is busy with school, I think: in a recent interview with Chessbase he said he needs a break from chess and focus on university in order to complete his masters degree.
Apr-19-16  Mr. V: Why would Li Chao be banned? Maybe I'm out of the loop but I've never heard anything like that.
Apr-19-16  sonia91: <Mr V> He had a dispute with a sponsor of a Beijing club.
(see "China chess league" section)
Apr-21-16  dumbgai: Wei Yi finally appears to be back in form. With a good showing he could return to 2700+.
Apr-21-16  AzingaBonzer: After yesterday's win against Zhao Jun, his living rating is at 2698.8. One more win today and he'll be back over.

  HeMateMe: I thought Yifan was competing in this event, these days. Is her rating not high enough to qualify?
Apr-24-16  Eduardo Leon: <HeMateMe> If I recall correctly, she said she would finish her degree in fall or winter (I don't remember which). So she might be busy with that. If she weren't busy, she in most likelihood wouldn't have withdrawn from the Women's Grand Prix.
Apr-25-16  CountryGirl: A certain young player is running a-Wei with this tournament....
Apr-26-16  sonia91: Lu Shanglei drew all his games so far, a Chinese Giri? :)
Apr-29-16  AzingaBonzer: Congratulations to Wei Yi.
