Wesley So is overrated by everyone because he is short, ugly, and young, But he is really only a 2000 level player who gets lucky a lot. Sometimes he can play OK, but even at his best he is garbage. Not even a 2600 would draw 2000 players the way Weasley, So does. Lotis Key plays better chess than this kid. <So> should go back to checkers.
Everyone fawns over the loser and parent-disrespecter Wesley So and his Cult of Melisande because of Political Correctness (aka: he has slit-like eyes like all Yellow Perils.) This collection shows how mistaken these loser fans are.

MVL's stance on Wesley So:
"He is a <typical counterattacking player>, that’s where he feels at ease. If he doesn’t succeed in finding more agressive ideas in the opening, in setting more problems to his opponents, it will not work in Berlin. Of course, he gets positions he could possibly win, <but it might not be sufficient at the Candidates tournament level>, where everybody arrives armed to the teeth.
By the way, he already had difficulties adapting to his new status in 2017 (Wesley So was world #2 from March to August – Ed.).
That being said, I noticed that he recently <tried to develop his style, to take a bit more risks, and I feel this is the right direction.> He certainly had enough time to make the same diagnosis than me, namely that he has the technical level to win the Candidates, <but that a little something is still lacking.>
For my part, I have a very good score against Wesley, who has never beaten me. I often won with black (the first three wins -Ed.). Admittedly, some of these wins are slightly out of date, and when he made his breakthrough to the top level, he generally tightened his game.
<I’m not convinced by his chances to win in Berlin, <except if he’s able to go further in his opening style change, and to accept the risks associated, namely the increase of technical mistakes.">>
