  WannaBe: Player of the day and a birthday!! =)
Premium Chessgames Member That's not a coincidence: our software works differently now. From now on, you'll be seeing lots of players selected on their birthdays.
Jul-12-07  whiteshark: Is she owning a patent on

<Spinning steel ring for making track and base seat respectively and combined as one body> ??

I'll be dying to know.

Jul-12-07  wouldpusher: <whiteshark> Probably, but that could be a different Gu Xiaobing. As some of us know, different words in the Chinese language(s) have different intonation and meaning but may be transliterated/romanized in the same manner.

Perhaps only she can give light to your question...

Jul-13-07  whiteshark: Thank you, <wouldpusher>, guess you are right, when saying

<As some of us know, different words in the Chinese language(s) have different intonation and meaning but may be transliterated/romanized in the same manner.> !!!

  WannaBe: It is really too bad, that Bu Xiangzhi never played Gu Xiaobing

We can have Bu Gu Gai Pan as game of the day...

Someone stop me, please...

Jul-12-09  wordfunph: I once saw Master Gu Xiaobing playing against GM Mark Paragua..

Happy Birthday Master Gu Xiabing!

Jul-12-10  lentil: Weirder yet: The chinese calculate birthdays by the lunar calendar, so "our" birthday seldom corresppnds with "theirs".
Oct-25-10  wordfunph: ever beautiful and charming WGM Gu Xiaobing as live commentator and interpreter in Nanjing..

Mar-20-17  cro777: WGM Gu Xiaobing and GM Zhao Jun – newly married chess couple:

Mar-20-17  cro777: A wide range of chess friends attended the wedding scene:

Mar-21-17  JimNorCal: cro777: Thanks for posting all the links to cool photos!
