Jan-23-08  silvermoon: Born 1979. Now 29 years old.

Is the coach of Hou Yifan.

Rating as of January 2008 is 2505.

Highest rating is 2550 [July 2002].

Apr-07-08  playerXchess: Shaoteng is presently in Spain with Hou Yifan as her trainer.

He looks so much like a younger version of Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, it's scary.
