Hou reaches 2600

  • #1

    Hou has reached 2600 for what is the first time, I believe.

    She still has quite a hill to climb to match Judit's best of #8 in the world though.

    1 Polgar, Judit g HUN 2686   0 1976
    2 Koneru, Humpy g IND 2607   18 1987
    3 Hou, Yifan g CHN 2602   23

    1994

    Happy New Year Goldendog, I don't know anything about Hou.. so why are you following her progress ?  

  • #3

    Happy New Year to you too, kco.

    She's a top woman player, current WC, young...I hope she really takes off and can make a mark not just among women.

    Well it been 21 months ago since your last post. So how is she doing now ?

  • #5

    Yes "Hou" is she doing?

  • #6

    She looks much better with longer hair.

  • #7

    She's not made much progress.

  • #8

    Would that statement #8  'qualify' for you goldendog ? Wink

    I still can't believe there's somebody named Humpy.

    Hou should start competing in men's events if she wants to get better IMO.
