Favourite player: Kasparov, on and off the board. :)

Playing styles i respect.. Karpov, Tal, Fischer, Morozevich, Kramnik, Geller, Morphy, Capablanca(for his natural talent/genius).

Updated bio as of 28th of January, 2017

Current players I'm following;

Wei Yi, Yu YangYi, Ding Liren..

Those are my 3 young hopefuls, and i think all 3 of them can challenge Carlsen to a WC match and have good chances. The other like Wang Hao and stuff don't seem as dedicated to being a chess professional and have other interests(like school/uni etc), otherwise they could probably go as far too.

Also a big fan of Nakamura. Waiting for the day that Naka beats Carlsen in a classical game.. otherwise i don't think he really has a chance vs Carlsen anytime soon.. haha

I play on lichess currently(imo they have the best interface/system, unlimited or even real time engine analysis, unlike, or at least last time i used :P), and only play 15/15 games or longer. Not a fan of blitz faster than that, because i like to have a drink/smoke or two and still be able to win etc..

lichess>>yahoo chess, which was my chess site progression.. i think lichess rating is higher than or yahoo, but they use glicko system, and i'm not sure about the other two but i'm guessing not because like i said, i wouldn't have a chance against 2000+ player at 15/15 on yahoo back in the day.. maybe i've just gotten better? i don't think so, but who really knows.. -_-

My account @ lichess =

Send me a message here or there if you would like a game or anything. I haven't played much recently, but chess isn't something that needs to be rushed and it will be there even when i'm an old man. Or an older man. Or whatever. I'm still young at heart, and that's all that matters ;)

ex0duz: What's the idea behind whites Qf3/Qg2? I think the first loss must have rattled ding.. else I don't think he would play f5/g5 pawn storm and be that aggressive with black.

ex0duz: Ding has improved tremendously since he got destroyed by carlsen in 2017 match, and based on recent encounters I'd say he even has the psychological edge and better score. As for ding vs caruana, isn't it well known that caruana isn't as good at faster time controls? Caru might have ...

ex0duz: Great bear: after Kh5 37. g4## is instant unnavoidable mate. So basically it's forced mate in 2
   Oct-26-19 Wang Hao vs D Howell, 2019 (replies)
ex0duz: <Oct-26-19 goodevans: <ex0duz>, <ndg2>, You both ask what Howell was thinking when he played 18..Bd5. Well there's a very plausible explanation given in <Sally Simpsons>'s earlier post if you're really interested.> Sally said it was complications in order to ...
   Oct-23-19 Wang Hao (replies)
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.

ex0duz: Oh, I forgot to add that modern china is not mao era china., or even Deng era china.. ie referring to Tiananmen. See CCP response to HK 4 months of daily riots. No PLA is involved still, and hk police response has been admirably restrained(even including the rioter getting shot ...
   Sep-23-19 K Alekseenko vs Ding Liren, 2019
ex0duz: Wow what a game from ding! One shot after another! Attack all the way, even when a draw will get him to the next round.. I need an engine to check all the lines in real time, since it's too wild for me to work out all the interesting lines.

ex0duz: <keypusher: <Sokrates> I assume because Liren (or Li Ren) is two different characters in Chinese. His full name: 丁立人> Yeah. 3 characters in Chinese so i put 3 words/characters in English. <<Ding Liren (DL): My first name is Liren and my family ...
   Aug-16-19 Ding Liren (replies)
ex0duz: <Pyrandus: Good Morning! Ding "Liren"? In the chinese Languege (langue chinoise) do not exists the voice "R". Why "liRen"?> Japanese is the one you're thinking of, but they change the L to R sounds. Chinese(mandarin) has both L and R sounds, and Cantonese(hk etc) has sounds ...
   Aug-11-19 Ding Liren vs Carlsen, 2019 (replies)
ex0duz: Ding would be perfect challenger for carlsens WC title.. Carlsen may have beat Ding handily last rapid/blitz match but Ding has probably improved since then immensely. Come on Ding, make us Chinese proud!
