[what is this?]

Grandmaster (2005).


Wang Hao was born in Harbin, Heilongjiang.


<2002-2004> Wang Hao's earliest success includes winning the Qingdao Zhongfand Cup in July 2002 at the age of 12. In late 2003, his ELO jumped a spectacular 210 ELO points from 2215 to 2425 because of excellent results in three events. The first was the Chinese Teams Championships in September 2003 where he scored 5/7, adding 58.5 ELO, the second the World Youth Championships U14 in Halkidiki in October 2003 where he scored 6/9 and added 91.5 ELO points, and the third was the Chinese Individual Championship in November 2003 when he scored 6/10, adding 60 ELO.

The experience and success in these tournaments in late 2003 provided him with the improvement and the confidence that success instilled as the springboard for his spectacular assaults in 2005 when he leapt from untitled player to Grandmaster.

<2004> In July 2004, he won the Children of Asia, a youth tournament in Jakutsk with 5/5, and played in the U16 and open Olympiads (see below) and the 2004 Chinese Championships.

<2005> Wang Hao burst onto the international chess scene in 2005 with his first major tournament win at the 7th Dubai Open. An untitled player at the time of the event, and who turned 16 during round 5, he scored 7 points out of 9 to finish ahead of 53 Grandmasters and 30 International Masters with a 2731 performance. He followed this victory up with another at the 2005 Malaysian Open, this time spreadeagling the field with a score of 10/11 and a performance rating of 2843. His performances in these events, as well as in the Aeroflot Open (2005) A2 group where he had scored 6.5/9, provided the three GM norms he needed to earn him the GM title at the age of 16 (leap frogging the FM and IM titles altogether) to make him China's 20th Grandmaster.

<2006> Wang Hao came =2nd behind Yue Wang in the double round robin Chinese Men Selective tournament that finished in January 2006, scoring 12/18, and competed in the Aeroflot Open (2006) scoring 5/9, and in the Aeroflot Open (2007) this time scoring 5.5/9.

<2007> Wang Hao started 2007 with an equal second in the Singapore Masters followed by a win in February 2007 at the GACC Tournament at the University of Malaya, 4th at the Philippine International Open at Subic Bay, won the powerful double round robin (14 round) Selective Tournament for Asian Indoors Games 2007 in May and came 2nd in the Peoples Chess Festival 2007 in Stockholm in August.

<2008> The year began for Wang Hao with his =3rd place at the Gibraltar Masters (2008), half a point behind the winners. In March 2008, he won on tiebreak from Hannes Stefansson and Wang Yue in the Reykjavik Open (2008) with 7/9 points (2721 rating performance). In July 2008, he came 5th out of 10 players at the Category 18 9th Karpov Poikovsky (2008) in Russia where he scored 5.0/9 (+2=6-1), a half point behind the joint winners, with a TPR of 2734.

<2009> In May 2009, he scored 5.5/10 (+3 -2 =5) at the Bosnia (2009) in Sarajevo with a 2725 performance, placing =2nd with Borki Predojevic (2nd on countback) and behind the winner Pavel Eljanov. In September 2009, he was runner up to Wang Yue in the Chess King tournament in Jinzhou.

<2010> In May 2010, Wang Hao came first on count back ahead of Zahar Efimenko in the 40th Bosnia International tournament in Sarajevo. He scored 5/9 to come in 6th – again half a point behind the joint leaders - at the Tal Memorial (2010) and 5.5/9 to place =3rd (4th on count back) at the Hainan Danzhou GM (2010) in June, again a half point off the lead.

<2011> 2011 started modestly for Wang Hao in his first Tata A (formerly Corus A) tournament, but his 6/13 (+3 -4 =6) and a 2728 performance rating in the Tata Steel Group A (2011) included wins over Alexander Grischuk and Ruslan Ponomariov. Wang Hao came 2nd at the the 26th Summer Universiade Individual Men in Shenzhen,China, with 6.5/9 behind an incandescent Chao Li who demolished the powerful field with 8.5/9. He won the rapid chess section of the inaugural SportAccord World Mind Games, which also featured blitz and blindfold games in addition to other board games such as Go, Draughts, Bridge and Xiangqi.*

<2012> Wang Hao's finest moment so far has come with his outright victory in the Grandmaster Tournament at the Biel Chess Festival (2012) ahead of outright second placed Magnus Carlsen, after winning his last round game against Anish Giri.

<2013> In May 2013, Wang scored 4.5/9 in the category XXI Norway Chess (2013), but shocked the field by defeating world #1 Magnus Carlsen and World Champion Viswanathan Anand in successive rounds, turning the event result into a slight rating plus for him. He was not so fortunate at Dortmund Sparkassen (2013) where he scored a modest 4/9 but pulled back to some extent at the Kings Tournament (2013) where he placed 2nd with 4.5/8 behind Fabiano Caruana.

<2014> In April 2014, Wang Hao participated in the inaugural Gashimov Memorial (Group B) (2014), the category XVII second tier of a tournament to commemorate the late Azeri grandmaster. He scored 5/9 to place =3rd in the ten player round robin event.

<2015> In April he played in the Bangkok Chess Club Open (2015), and placed 4th with 7/9, half a point behind the three co-leaders of the event. In June, he competed in the 10th Edmonton International (2015) in Canada, and placed =2nd behind Pentala Harikrishna, and alongside Vasyl Ivanchuk and Surya Shekhar Ganguly.

Championship Events

<Age>: In 1999, Wang came third in the U-10 Youth World Championship in Oropesa del Mar, Spain. In October 2006, he came =5th in the World Junior Championship (2006) and a year later, he placed third in the World Junior Championship (2007).

<National and Continental>: Wang has participated in all the annual Chinese Championships since 2003 except for 2011, coming =2nd in the Chinese Championship (2009), =2nd in the Chinese Championship (2010) and =3rd in Chinese Championship (2015). In September 2007 he came in second place behind Pengxiang Zhang at the Asian Individual Championship (2007) in Manila.

<World>: In October 2005 he qualified for the World Cup (2005), when he came joint first in the Beijing Zonal 3.5 tournament but lost his first-round match against Vladimir Malakhov. He made it to the second round of the World Cup (2007), before succumbing to Ruslan Ponomariov. He fared slightly better in the World Cup (2009), but was defeated in the third round by Shakhriyar Mamedyarov. He qualified for the World Cup (2011) via his rating, but withdrew at the eleventh hour for health reasons. He is qualified by virtue of his rating to play in the World Cup (2013), where he defeated Qingnan Liu in the first round but was eliminated when he lost to Russian veteran GM Aleksey Dreev in the second round. He again qualified by rating to play in the World Cup (2015) and defeated Milos Perunovic to progress to the second round where he unexpectedly lost to compatriot Shanglei Lu and was eliminated from the Cup.

<2012-2013 FIDE Grand Prix series>: Playing as the AGON nominee in the FIDE Grand Prix London (2012), Wang Hao scored 5.5/11 to place 6th and get 70 GP points on the board for his 2014 World Championship campaign. He placed =1st alongside Sergey Karjakin and Alexander Morozevich with 6.5/11 in the FIDE Grand Prix Tashkent (2012), increasing his Grand Prix tally to 210 points. His 3rd outing at the FIDE Grand Prix Beijing (2013) was disastrous, placing =9th and scoring insufficient Grand Prix points to be in a position to contest the top 2 positions needed to qualify for the Candidates Tournament 2014, which combined with his results from the World Cup 2013, have eliminated him from the 2014 World Championship cycle. His final outing at the FIDE Grand Prix Paris (2013) had no bearing on the outcome, but in the event he placed =7th with 5/11.

<Events leading up to 2020/21 Candidates Tournament>: Wang Hao had his most important victory to date at the Isle of Man Grand Swiss (2019). He tied for first with Fabiano Caruana, ahead of such superstars as world champion Magnus Carlsen, Levon Aronian, Hikaru Nakamura, and Alexander Grischuk. This result qualified Wang Hao for the next Candidates tournament, since Caruana had already qualified for it by virtue of being the challenger at the prior world championship match.

The World Championship Candidates (2020/21) featured two Chinese players for the first time, the other being Ding Liren. The tournament also proved historic in that it was interrupted at the midpoint due to the COVID pandemic, and only resumed a year later. Wang Hao had a disappointing result, finishing last with 5/14. After the tournament ended, he announced his retirement from chess. This proved to be short-lived.

Team events

<Olympiads> In August 2002, Wang Hao played on the fourth board of the gold medal winning Chinese national team in the U-16 Chess Olympiad in Kuala Lumpur, scoring 3/5. In July 2004, while still 14 years old, he won both individual and team gold with his national team in the U-16 Chess Olympiad in Calicut where his result was 8/9 on the first board, producing a rating performance of 2577. Two other members of this team also won individual gold. He was also a member of the Chinese team to the Calvia Olympiad (2004) (2nd reserve scoring 3.5/5), the Dresden Olympiad (2008) (Board 4, scoring 4.5/7) and the Khanty-Mansiysk Olympiad (2010) (Board 2, scoring 7/10 and winning individual bronze); and the Istanbul Olympiad (2012) (Board 1, scoring 6/10) in Istanbul.

<National Team Events> In January 2008, at the 15th Asian Team Chess Championship in Visakhapatnam, Wang won an individual gold medal for his performance on board three (5/6), helping the national team to also winning gold. In 2012, he played board one for China and won individual and team gold at the 17th Asian Team Championships held in Zaozhuang, China. In July 2006, he scored 3.5/5 to be the best performing member of the victorious Chinese team that defeated Sweden in the China-Sweden Summit for the Aigo Cup and was a member of the victorious Youth team in the Youth - Experience (2006). In August 2007, he competed in the 4th Russia - China Match (2007) in which China was victorious, scoring 5.5/10. In September 2007, he was part of the victorious Chinese team in the UK vs China Match (2007). In September 2008, he competed at the 7th China - Russia (2010) in Ningbo where he scored the highest in the men's category with 3.5/5 and a performance rating of 2844 for the men's team. In September 2010, he was again a member of the victorious Chinese team defeating Russia in its annual match; Wang Hao scored 3.5/5. His performance for the Chinese team in the World Team Championship (2011) was exemplary, scoring an individual gold for board one and a team silver; his personal contribution was 6/9 with a TPR of 2854.

<National Leagues> In April 2008, Wang competed at the Russian Team Championship (2008) in Dagomys, Sochi for the team ShSM 64 (Moscow), where he achieved a score of 8.0/11 (+5=6-0) and a performance rating of 2795. In 2010 he again played with the ShSM -64 (Moscow) Team which on this occasion won the Russian Team Championship (2010) outright with 16/18 points; team members included Boris Gelfand, Sergey Karjakin, and Fabiano Caruana. He also played for ShSM-64 Moscow in the European Club Cup (2011), coming fourth on board 2, with the team placing 5th and for SOCAR on board 6 at the European Club Cup (2013), winning individual and team bronze. He again played for SOCAR Baku in the European Club Cup (2014), on this occasion winning team gold and individual bronze for board 6.

In 2010 and 2011, Wang Hao played for Hebei in the Chinese League, his team placing 7th out of 10 and 9th out of 10 respectively. In 2012, he played for Chengdu Bank Team, the team placing 12th out of 12. In 2013, he played top board for Qinhuangdao, which placed 12th out of 12. (1) In 2014 he played for Beijing, which came 5th in the Chinese League. (2) In 2015, he is again playing for Beijing, on second board.


Wang Hao was =2nd with 4.5/7 in the rapid section of the chess portion of the 2014 Mind Games held in Beijing. In the blitz section, he scored 13/30 in a powerful field, adding a handful of blitz rating points to his personal tally.

Ratings and Rankings

Wang Hao's highest rating and ranking to date were in January 2013 when his rating was 2752 and his world ranking stood at #14. In July 2013, he again reached 2752 albeit with a world ranking of #15. Since his high tide marks during 2013, Wang Hao's competitive output has gradually declined in the following couple of years, with periods of inactivity and a concomitant and gradual decline in his rating and ranking to the low 2700s.

Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: What on Earth is with Wang Hao with all those draws with a lot to play in Abu Dhabi? It are far too many draws to be just a "Swiss gambit" by now.
Dec-18-16  sonia91: He won the 2016 PSC- Puregold International Chess Challenge in the Philippines:
Dec-19-16  joeyj: Actually, he won back to back Open tournaments in the Philippines this Dec 2016:



Apr-02-17  falso contacto: Back to the fight apparently.
Apr-10-17  ex0duz: Congrats on your recent successes, you wizard! haha

Seems like he's regained his enthusiasm for the game, or perhaps schools finished for good or something? :P

But yeah. He's back over 2700! Or at least on live ratings anyway..

Let's just hope that he's here to stay and will try and fight for the crown seriously, and not just as a 'chess tourist'. I'm sure Wang Hao can play just as good if not better than Ding Liren, although Ding is probably better at blitz. But then again, according to live ratings, only Magnus is ranked above Ding in blitz.. Ding is even ranked higher than Naka, which is no mean feat. I wouldn't mind watching a blitz match between Ding and Naka..

May-23-17  ex0duz: Wang Hao seems to be going through a tipsy-turvy period in terms of his rating. He can't seem to stay above 2700 these days.. and even seems like a real struggle just to make 2700 now :(

What's going on with him in his life? Anyone know what he's doing? He's finished school/uni, is he working or doing anything else other than a full time chess pro?

Even at his peak, he was still a uni student, no? Does anyone know if he's sick of chess or..? Why is a former 2750 player doing so 'bad' now.. he used to be the best outta the chinese, now he's been overtaken by everyone.

Ga yao Wang Hao!

May-31-17  sonia91: He won the Asian Continental Championship 2017 in Chengdu, China with 7/9 on tiebreak from Bu Xiangzhi. Wei Yi was the top seed.

<> forgot to cover the second strongest continental championship (after the European one of course)...and alas it's not the first time

Aug-05-17  cro777: Wang Hao’s 28th birthday (August 4). Congratulations!

Wang Hao: "I am not a typical chess player."

According to Wang Hao, his chess image has never been "obsessed with" and "hard study".

He studied advertising at the School of Journalism and Communication, Peking University.

(Wang Hao won the 16th Asian Championship in June in Chengdu).

  Penguincw: Congrats to Wang Hao for winning the Longtou Cup Open by half a point with 7.5/9 (+6,-0,=3). Pretty easy tournament for him, as the 2nd seed was rated 2653 and the 3rd seed was rated 2597, but oh well.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: I just found out that Wang Hao participated in the 2005 World Cup, with a rating of 2519, but <untitled>. Wow. Must be a record.
Mar-24-19  sonia91: Wang Hao recently won the HDBank Open in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam for the second time, scoring 7.5/9:

Previously he also had a strong showing in the 17th Aeroflot Open (Group A) (2019), finishing 4th on 6/9.

He is currently playing in the strong <Sharjah Masters> (a tournament he won back in 2017, when its first edition was held) in the United Arab Emirates. Vladimir Fedoseev, le Quang Liem, Alireza Firouzja also play:

Mar-24-19  parmetd: Probably not Kramnik played 1992 Manila as a 2590 FM.
Apr-01-19  sonia91: <parmetd> Then he was not untitled, and Kramnik never took part in a World Cup as a 2500+ untitled player, which <Penguincw> was pointing out.

Wang Hao shared first (2nd on TB) at 3rd Sharjah Masters (2019). Prior to this open, he won the 1st Hail Rapid Chess Tournament in Saudi Arabia: (report by IM Irina Bulmaga, who won the women's section)

Welcome to the Big Dance of CANDIDATES.
Oct-22-19  UncleTarrasch2: Congrats! The super GMs were probably wary of this apparently low ranked 2700 shark lurking in the Isle of Man. Now he’s jumped aboard the Candidates ship
Oct-23-19  ex0duz: I've always felt that wang hao is as talented as ding, he just isn't as motivated and doesn't work as hard.

Congrats on making the candidates, I hope this rekindles his motivation and I hope he's back to stay.

  Penguincw: Wang Hao performed well at Gibraltar Masters (2020), placing 2nd on tiebreaks after a 7 way tie for 1st (which resulted in a 4 player playoff).

FYI, that was before his win against Ding...

Everything has an end

'.. From a technical point of view, I [Wang Hao] feel no emotions during the game – only tiredness. A state of a body desert. Previously, my mood was not that stable. And that is no good; it is much more difficult to win. ..'

'.. From our very pleasant [and remarkable] conversation, I [ Diana Mihajlova ] could detect his sensitive character, openness and sincerity. He likes to observe and pay attention to the world around him, perhaps lacking the 'ealthy' indifference that many top players possess. His dedication to his university studies must have taken its toll too. But, this is not the end. ..'
