  WannaBe: Seems like Li is a fairly young man.

Third photo down on the right hand-side.
This was world youth champ in 2003.

May-03-05  cade: Yes Mr Wu is the most promising British youngster on the scene at the moment in my opinion. I think he is potentially top 10 in the world material.

I hope so at least.

May-03-05  iron maiden: What's his rating? I can't find him on the FIDE page.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: This was from 2004, on here, he is listed as 2236. And he was in the U16 group!

May-03-05  cade: He is currently rated 2262.
May-03-05  iron maiden: In that case I would probably suggest Howell as being more promising.
Nov-13-06  watergun7: Hello. I'm Li Wu...
Premium Chessgames Member
  TheAlchemist: <watergun7> Hello!
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: The Dancing Li Wu Master... Pun potential here for a Game Of the Day.
Premium Chessgames Member
  pawn to QB4: Hi watergun7. Don't suppose you'll recall an easy win at a 30 minuter in Derby 3 years back v a patzer who risked Fischer's ...Nh5 in the Benoni? My question: is it true you were a pupil of Tony Miles and if so, any impressions?
Apr-19-07  watergun7: Hi... I haven't been on chessgames for a long time, sorry for the late reply. I was fortunate enough to recieve some coaching from Miles (but only a few times before he died). He helped me with my chess quite a bit I think, but I didn't really concentrate on it. For example, he taught me that the best way to understand an unfamiliar middle game position is to play blitz with someone your own strength from that position, swapping sides each time, until you can't find any more plans. I'm afraid I don't recall that particular game <pawn to QB4>. And I believe it's the <Dancing Wu Li Masters> (wu li has lots of meanings in chinese, using different characters, here it means physics).

  WannaBe: More than a year later... =)

<watergun7> Yes, but for a pun, it doesn't have to be exact. And by the way, I'm Chinese, so I understand the pronounciation and the accent on the words are important.

Hope to see/hear more from you!
