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 ;)

   Mar-06-23 Nepomniachtchi - Ding World Championship Match (2023) (replies)
ex0duz: <SChesshevsky> How do you know it's months of strenuous and months of it being a torturous chore? He could just make his team do most, if not all of that kind of stuff. He just needs to study Nepo abit which he has already done from his last WC defense. I don't see why he needs
   Jun-29-22 FIDE Candidates (2022) (replies)
ex0duz: Yeah, Ding is playing great now after a slow start, which is usually the case for him it seems. Same as last candidate's before it ended or dropped out.. Hopefully Nepo loses a game and ding wins a few more at least to keep things interesting. If Nepo wins one more it will probably ...
   Jun-29-22 Ding Liren vs Duda, 2022
ex0duz: Sorry, don't know how to edit or delete my previous post, but you can see Ding make his 40th move and also Dudas time and the speed and nonchalance with which he played Bxe4 also. I think it's a good addendum for people who view this game in the future, since that was the critical ...
   May-26-22 Mishra vs Wei Yi, 2022 (replies)
ex0duz: Did Wei Yi lose on time? Sure, he's down a pawn but why not play on in such a position? Not like there was zero chance to create complications and hope for mistake or blunder.. not like he was playing Carlsen or something lol
   Mar-18-20 Vachier-Lagrave vs Ding Liren, 2020 (replies)
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.
   Dec-08-19 London Chess Classic GCT Finals (2019) (replies)
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 ...
   Dec-05-19 Ding Liren vs Aronian, 2019 (replies)
ex0duz: Great bear: after Kh5 37. g4## is instant unnavoidable mate. So basically it's forced mate in 2
   Oct-26-19 H Wang 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 Hao Wang (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.
   Oct-02-19 World Cup (2019) (replies)
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 ...
