Jan-12-08  pawnofdoom: <Whitehat1963> That would have been a nice pun if it weren't for the fact that "Li" is pronounced Lee and not Lie
Jan-12-08  Jim Bartle: ...and shi tall.
Jan-12-08  sweeviltree: Peter Long Dong Mo
Jan-23-08  silvermoon: <Li Shilong> wins against Fabiano Caruana.

(comment unfortunately in dutch -P=N L=B T=R D=Q)

Li Shilong - Richter
1. d4 Pf6 2. c4 g6 3. Pc3 Lg7 4. e4 d6 5. Pf3 0-0 6. Le2 Pa6 7. 0-0 e5 8. Le3 Pg4 9. Lg5 De8 10. h3 f6 11. Lc1 Ph6 12. Te1 Pf7 13. Lf1 f5 14. dxe5 dxe5 15. b3! Had Li hier e5 al op de korrel? Voorlopig dreigt eerst La3 met onaangename aanval op de f8-toren. 15. .. Kh8 16. La3 Tg8 17. exf5 gxf5

18. Pxe5!!?
We kunnen ons voorstellen dat Richter hier bijna van zijn stoel viel. 18. .. Lxe5 19. Lb2 f4
Sosonko en Ligterink suggereren hier als verbetering 19. .. Pg5, waarna wit net als in de partij ongetwijfeld 20. Txe5! had gespeeld,

met als mogelijk vervolg:
A) 20. .. Pxh3+ 21. Kh1 (zeer riskant is 21. Kh2 Dxe5+ 22. Kxh3 Tg6 23. Dd2 Kg8 24. Te1 Dd6 en wit heeft slechts lichte compensatie voor de kwaliteit) 21. .. Pxf2+ 22. Kg1 Pxd1 23. Pxd1! Dxe5 24. Lxe5+ Tg7 en wit moet bewijzen dat hij genoeg heeft voor de pion, of: B) 20. .. Dxe5 21. g3! (21. Pa4?? Pxh3+ 22. Kh1 Pxf2+) 21. .. Tg7 (enige zet om niet de dame te verliezen) 22. Dd8+ (22. Pa4 De7) 22. .. Tg8 en volgens de computer heeft wit nu niets beters dan remise met 23. Dd1 Tg7 enz. 20. Txe5! Pxe5 21. Pd5 Tf8
Op 21. .. Tg5 volgt droog 22. h4.
22. Dd2!
Een tikje subtieler dan 22. De2, wat eveneens prima was. 22. .. c6 23. Te1

en in deze afschuwelijke situatie gaf Richter op. 23. .. Tf5 helpt niet na 24. Ld3! gevolgd door 25. Lxf5 of 25. Dxf4, al naar gelang.

Sep-18-08  ingberg: Currently leading at the 4th Pichay Cup, half a point ahead of Zhang Zhong

Sep-20-08  ingberg: Lol, he did in fact win it :)

Apr-10-11  wordfunph: 2520-rated GM Li Shilong finished 11th from 12 participants in the recent Chinese Championship with +3-7=1 clip with 2483 TPR..

i was impressed with his opening knowledge but he needs to check his endgame skill, he cracks under time pressure just like his game against GM Ni Hua, he missed Nihua's obvious Qxh6+ and resigned.

  HeMateMe: I think he's bigger than his results.
Apr-17-11  DeepFriedLiver: Has he really never played with Abhijit Kunte?
Aug-30-11  Wyatt Gwyon: A grower not a shower?
