    It is a famous personality in the world of chess coaching.

    I see.

    Any chance Wesley breaks 2700 this year?

  • #15

    Next up for young Wesley So is Wijk aan Zee, in about a week. Hopefully he prepares well for this tournament, so he can win the whole thing and join his contemporary Anish Giri and the big dogs in Group A next year.

  • #16

    drawn 2 games so far...

  • #17

    again another draw after 3 rounds...looks like he won't be able to win group B this year

  • #18

    He's within a point of leader Luke McShane with still plenty of matches left. As long as he doesn't lose a game, he's got a chance to catch up.

    BTW after Wijk aan Zee comes Aeroflot within a couple of weeks. Hopefully he can perform well there too, maybe get a ticket to Dortmund by winning.

  • #19

    3 consecutive victories - vs. Ganguly, Fressinet (2707), and Navara (2708) - for a joint first with McShane and Efimenko, but the highest TPR so far.
