[what is this?]

Grandmaster (2009), three-time Chinese Champion (2009, 2011 and 2012) and World Champion in 2023.


<Youth and Junior> Ding Liren was runner up on tiebreak to Nan Zhao at the 2004 World U12 Championship in Heraklio. He placed =3rd at the World Junior Championship (2012), half a point behind Richard Rapport and the ultimate winner, Alexander Ipatov.

<National> Ding Liren (丁立人) first competed in the Chinese Championship when he turned 13 in 2005, scoring 3.5/7. He competed again in the 2008 event before winning the Chinese Championship (2009), becoming the youngest player ever to win the Chinese national title, This result also gained Ding the final GM norm he needed to be awarded the GM title. In 2011, he won the national championship a second time, when he took out the Chinese Championship (2011) with a round to spare, and two points clear of the field. Ding completed a hat trick of championship wins in China when he won the Chinese Chess Championship (2012) outright with 8/11, a full point clear of outright second placed Yangyi Yu. He narrowly missed a fourth championship win in the Chinese Championship (2014) when he placed =1st alongside Yangyi Yu, but came second on tiebreak. A year later, Ding finished clear second, behind fellow wunderkind Wei Yi at the Chinese Championship (2015).

<Continental> Ding gained his first GM norm, a double norm, at the 8th Asian Continental Chess Championship (2009). Soon after winning the 2012 Chinese Championship, he placed equal fourth (sixth on tiebreak) at the Asian Continental Chess Championship (2012).

<World> In 2007, Ding scored 6.5/9 at Chinese Zonal 3.5, failing to qualify for the World Cup (2007) by the narrowest tiebreak. He subsequently qualified for the World Cup (2011) as nominee of the FIDE President, but lost the first round rapid game tiebreaker to Filipino prodigy, GM Wesley So, thereby exiting the competition. He qualified by rating for the World Cup (2015) in the first round he played and defeated Canadian Tomas Krnan in the opening round to advance to the second round where he defeated Ernesto Inarkiev. In the third round he overcame Gadir Guseinov to win through to the Round of Sixteen where he lost to compatriot wunderkind Wei Yi to exit the event.

Standard Tournaments

In August-September 2010, he was =3rd at the Florencio Campomanes Memorial Tournament in the Philippines, half a point behind the joint winners Le Quang Liem and Zhao Jun. In October 2011, he placed =4th with 6.5/9, a half point behind the three joint leaders, Jianchao Zhou, Ngoc Truongson Nguyen and at the 1st Qinhuangdao Open Chess Tournament. There followed =3rd behind Hua Ni and Bu Xiangzhi in the 3rd Hainan Danzhou Super Grand Master Chess Tournament held in June 2012 and =2nd (3rd on tiebreak), half a point behind the winner Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, at the SPICE Cup (2012).

In February 2013, Ding placed =4th with 7.5/10, half a point behind the three co-leaders at the Reykjavik Open (2013). In April 2013, he was invited to the category 20 Alekhine Memorial (2013) his 3.5/9 was near the bottom of the field, but against that it was close to a par for rating performance, and includes a brilliancy against the eventual winner of the event, Levon Aronian. (1) In May 2013, Ding Liren won the Hainan Danzhou GM (2013), a category 15 event, outright with 7/9. In July-August 2013, he came =2nd (3rd on tiebreak) at the category 19 Biel (2013) tournament. He placed =3rd at the Cappelle-la-Grande Open (2014), equal first at the Hainan Danzhou GM (2014) and 5th at the Petrosian Memorial (2014).

Ding Liren's best result to date came at the Tata Steel Masters (2015) in January 2015, when he scored 8.5/13 to place =2nd alongside Anish Giri, Wesley So and Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, half a point behind the winner Magnus Carlsen. This result pushed him into the world's top 20 and became the second best player in Asia, second only to Anand. A few months later in July 2015, he played in the category 17 Hainan Danzhou GM (2015), placing outright 3rd with 5.5/9 (+3 -1 =5), an absolutely rating-neutral result, behind the winner Yue Wang and runner-up Hua Ni. He was equal third at the quadrangular round robin event, Bilbao Masters (2015), staged in October 2015, drawing all his games with a performance rating slightly below actual rating. He reprised his result at Wijk aan Zee when he again placed equal second at the Tata Steel Masters (2016) behind Carlsen and alongside Fabiano Caruana. During this event, he momentarily overtook Anand as the top Asian player in the live ratings.

Team Events

<Olympiads> Ding played board 3 for China at the Istanbul Olympiad (2012) held in Istanbul in September 2012, narrowly missing both team and individual medals when he scored 7.5/10 with a TPR of 2764. He played board 2 for China at the Tromso Olympiad (2014), winning individual bronze and team gold.

<World Team Championships> Ding played for China at the World Team Championship (2011) as a reserve, helping his team to win silver. Playing board 2 for China in the World Team Championship (2013), he won team silver and individual bronze and won the team gold and individual silver (on board 2) at the World Team Championship (2015).

<Regional Team Championships> Winning the the 2012 Asian Team Championship Chinese Team Selection Tournament qualified Ding to play in the 17th Asian Team Championships held in Zaozhuang, China in May 2012. There he won team gold and individual silver playing board 4 for China. At the 18th Asian Team Championships held in 2014, he won team and individual gold (for board 1).

<Summit Friendlies> He played on the Chinese team that lost to Russia in the Russia - China (2009) summit event. A few years later Ding was a member of the Chinese team at the Russia - China (2012) summit, which was won by China in the classical section, although Russia won the overall event. In April 2015 he helped China defeat India in their summit match in Hyderabad. Ding was also a member of the Chinese team in the novel China - Russia Challenge (2015) event, which involves one member of each team playing one game at a time, with the winner of the game remaining to play opponents from the next team until he loses, at which time the new winner "defends the stage" against the next opponent(s) from the other team. In his match up against Sergey Karjakin, Ding drew the classical game and traded wins in the two blitz tiebreakers before bowing out in the Armageddon blitz game that Karjakin drew as Black. The second half of the event was completed at the end of 2015, and won by Russia.

<National Leagues> Ding Liren's first FIDE rated game was at the 2004 Chinese Team Championship, when he scored 1/4. He has played for the Zhejiang team in the Chinese League since at least 2008 inclusive. During this time, his team took the bronze in 2010 and he has played 134 games with a 67.9% result ( +65 =72 -17) overall. He won team bronze in 2010.

Ding Liren played for the T.S. Alyans team in the Turkish Superleague in 2014, his team placing 5th.

Rapid and Blitz

On 13 May 2012, Ding Liren played in the 11th Asian Blitz Championship and placed equal second with 7/9, half a point behind Wesley So. He participated in the IHMS Mind Games staged in Huai'an in China in 2016. The Mind Games consisted of men and women's groups each contesting rapid, blitz and Basque portions of the event. He won the Basque portion (two rapid games played at the same time against the opponent) of the event after scoring 4/7 in the IMSA Elite Mind Games (Rapid) (2016), a point from the lead, and 17.5/30 in the IMSA Elite Mind Games (Rapid) (2016), two points from the lead.


Ding Liren won the Ding Liren - Gelfand (2015) match held in July 2015 by 3-1 (+2 =2). He was eliminated in the first round of the China Chess Kings (2015) by Shanglei Lu.

Ratings and Rankings

Ding Liren's initial rating was 2230 in January 2004. He rapidly rose in the ratings, crossing 2600 in November 2010 and 2700 in October 2012. He did not fall under these benchmarks at any time since. He was one of the world's top juniors ranking in the top 20 from January 2011 exiting in January 2013 when he was too old to be qualified as a Junior. His highest ranking was world's #3 Junior throughout the 2012 calendar year. He also entered the world top 100 in May 2011 and has remained in that elite group on continuous basis since then.

His highest rating and ranking to date occurred in June 2018 when his rating climbed to 2798, and his world ranking to #4.

< Earlier Kibitzing  · PAGE 31 OF 31 ·  Later Kibitzing>
May-05-23  fabelhaft: Ding Liren’s first game as World Champion is already tomorrow, with white against MVL in Bucharest. Round 2 he is white against Caruana, round 3 black against Nepo.
May-06-23  Sally Simpson: I was reading something earlier that in an interview Ding said if he lost the final he was going to give up chess.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Check It Out: Yes, that was a post-match interview. These guys burn out quickly. They play intensely from age 7-30, and then they've had it. Modern gms play a lot more otb games than old school gms. Not to mention the tens of thousands of online blitz and bullet games.
May-06-23  stone free or die: Here's the interview itself - I assume his first sit-down interview as WCC -

<World Champion Ding Liren: "I thought if I lost the match, I'd retire from chess">

(I always wish that Ding was EQ'ed at 2x the volume of the rest)

Aside- I wonder who decided who went first in the tweeter hashtag: <Nepoding> (Age before beauty?)

Looks too much like a verb to me.

May-06-23  ex0duz: In his first game since becoming WC, he basically got a QGA and an easy draw with white vs MVL in about 25-30 moves. Both played well with not even one inaccuracy.

So far so good. Seems like he's taking it easy so far. Shouldn't he have rested more first? I mean he just finished playing an emotionally and physically grueling WC match just a few days ago. I hope he didn't just play solid without going for any risky lines now that he's WC, but who knows. Wasn't that how he got that 100+ game unbeaten streak and also got his highest rating of all time? Maybe he needs to go back to such a style. No more Ng5 h6 h4 fishing poles every second game vs 2800s and certainly not against Carlsen lol.

He should pick up the London vs Carlsen since he said in a recent interview that the London is Carlsens weapon of choice when he wants to play without prepping.

May-06-23  stone free or die: I think one of the biggest lessons Ding learned from the grueling WCC competition was to "stay hydrated".

A good lesson for us all.

  Joshka: <Petrosianic> I don't lie. Numbers are correct, and you know it. If you can read? You just choose to use only classical games, but we are in the age of everything goes now, blitz, rapid, and of course you knew that's what i was talking about. Like playing stupid hey? 40 to 22 with 52 draws, that's dominate.
Premium Chessgames Member
  chancho: <I don't lie.>

That's a lie right there.

Everyone lies!

May-10-23  Petrosianic: <Joshka: <Petrosianic> I don't lie.>

I cited several examples of your doing so, which you have yet to dispute. But let's look at the one and only one that you ARE disputing...

<Numbers are correct, and you know it. If you can read? You just choose to use only classical games, but we are in the age of everything goes now, blitz, rapid, and of course you knew that's what i was talking about. Like playing stupid hey? 40 to 22 with 52 draws, that's dominate.>

Exactly, numbers don't lie, but you do. To recap what you're talking about, I said that Carlsen's record against Ding was +1-0=9, a number confirmed by this site's own database. You just now admitted it was true (i.e. "You just choose to use only classical games...") But initially you said that that statement was a lie, knowing that it wasn't. That was a lie on your part.

Had you said something like "That's only classical games, man! Blitz and Rapids! THAT'S the measure of chess strength!", that would not have been a lie. Had you said "Carlsen would have a huge advantage against Ding in a Rapids playoff", that would have been a very reasonable opinion, but definitely not a lie. Instead of saying those things, you chose to lie.

To recap, any factual statement you know to be false is a lie, even if you're very emotional when you say it, and even if you believe that you're telling it in a good cause. I hate to belabor such an obvious point, but I've got the feeling that you may not even have known what a lie is up till now, and may be distressed to suddenly realize how many you've told over the years.

  perfidious: <Petrosianic....I've got the feeling that you may not even have known what a lie is up till now, and may be distressed to suddenly realize how many you've told over the years.>

Many in life are sold a bill of goods and are too lacking in perception, whatever the reason, till it is too late. Self-deception is the worst sort of lie in many ways.

May-10-23  Sally Simpson: 'On the chessboard, lies and hypocrisy do not survive long.' - Lasker

(who btw was a bigger cheapo merchant than even me - what a hypocrite! :))

I see in that Ding interview he has not changed. We have to grant him a ton of of leeway because English is not his mother tongue but he really should at least try and look happy.

When I met him it was really difficult getting anything out of him. I think he like Scotland, hard to tell.

I soon got bored with him and went off looking for Anand to see if he wore a wig. Much more fun. Twice he caught me looking intensely for the join. If it a wig it's a good one.

What else is new...Oh Yes Nepo does not like being called 'Nepo' anymore due to the modern term 'Nepo-Baby' (kids born of celebs who have been given a lift up the ladder due to who they are. Nepo in this case = Nepotism.)

So how about; The chess player formally known as 'Nepo.'

We could call him Ian but then people would get him mixed up with Ian Rogers.

Ian Rogers' last post (of two) here was in the furor that followed Wes So and Pavel Eljanov agreeing to a 3 move draw to share first prize in the 2013 Reykjavik Open.

Eljanov vs So, 2013 (kibitz #58)

Ian was set upon by some here (he too was called a hypocrite) and no doubt thinking this place is infested with argumentative nutcases (which carries more than a slight grain of truth - it is!) he never came back.

May-10-23  Petrosianic: <Sally Simpson> <Nepo does not like being called 'Nepo' anymore due to the modern term 'Nepo-Baby'>

At least the Finding Nepo jokes are mostly forgotten.

May-10-23  stone free or die: So from on it's Nepogesundheit?!

  Joshka: < Petrosianic> You know exactly how I framed my statement, I included all games, and stated Carlson is dominant. For you to pretend you do not understand this, is your problem. Which I of course only know too well, you have many. Get some mental help, you might appreciate life more. I will not be addressing this statement of mine anymore, since you choose to not believe it. Carlson dominates Ling.

I said I do not lie, so you are claiming i do? ok let's see what you have conjured up? I'm ready for battle, your move!;-)

May-10-23  Petrosianic: <Joshka>: <You know exactly how I framed my statement, I included all games, and stated Carlson is dominant.>

Are you saying that the lie wasn't a lie because you said <other> things that weren't lies? It actually doesn't work that way. But I never said <everything> you said was a lie. Certain specific things I listed were lies, but there were true statements and statements of opinion in there as well. I even agreed with your opinion that Carlsen would be a heavy favorite in a Rapids playoff if a match between them should get that far.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Joshka: <petrosianic> Again, you say I lied, where? Again do not bring up the won/loss record for Ling and Carlson, as i have proven Carlson dominates. So nothing more needs to be said about that subject. Again you say I lied, where??? (hint , I do not, so do not waste your time looking, as it will be a needless waste of time) You really need to get a life.

  FSR: James Canty annotates an amazing win by Ding Liren over Duda on
May-22-23  DanLanglois: wow, clever thread. Also, sarcasm is clever. And also, see what I did there.
May-22-23  Sally Simpson: Hi FSR,

That James Canty vid. Were you being sarcastic? Every 10 seconds it kept switching from him and a diagram to a full screen of just him talking and back again.

I went fast forward to see if the whole vid was like that. Yes. This is no good, very off putting. You try to study the diagram to see what he is on about. Then it's gone! whilst a full screen of just him tells us what should be played. Then it's back again to the diagram for 10 seconds and then only him again. Are all his vids like that?

May-24-23  DanLanglois: If it seems relevant, I note that a tool, especially a screwdriver, for making small adjustments, is called a 'tweaker'.
