My username is yoyoyoyoyo1234. My name is David Li. I am an advanced chess player who loves chess very much. I discovered chess.com when I was in 5th grade. I am in 7th grade right now, and I am 12 years old. I focus on my studies while also having time to play chess. I think chess is also a way to get better grades in school because it helps my concentration, attitude, and also it helps my brain get a workout. I am most active in this club called Complex Chess League. I am co-owner of it and I will appreciate it if you join!!! My favorite opening is the Italian Game, Ruy lopez, and Vienna Game. For black, I like Sicilian Defence and Caro-Khan Defence. Also I am underrated, so don't be surprised if I beat you in rapid easily, because I am dominant to 1600+!

I am good at 3 Check and had beaten NM's before, which is awesome! Also I had beaten lots of titled players in King of the Hill. However, my crazyhouse skills are not enough to beat titled players yet. Also my live 960 is pretty good over 1400, which is where I will stop for now.

Closest Friends on Chess.com

I do have a lot of friends, but I will point out the most active ones. (Please do not get offended)






Can I get top 100?

The question is can I get top 100 in the world in any type of chess?


I also can receive memberships as payment for coaching sessions. If you want to be coached, message me and we will work out pricing, and other stuff.

Also you may give me memberships anytime you want! Just when I don't have a membership!

I have a platinum membership because I begged my parents for one by bribing them with very good grades in school. They agreed finally and they make sure that it is not a distraction from my learning.

I am hosting a tournament with a 1 month golden membership prize for 1st place! Good deed of the chess.com server!


Goals are important because they will help you plan your future. These are my goals-

2000 Rapid, January 2022

Accomplished 1400's

I am trying to get 1400+ rating in everything by 2022. It will be hard, but I will try. Here is the list:


Bullet (Done)


Puzzles (Done)

Live 960 (Done)

3 Check (Done)

King of the Hill (Done)

Crazyhouse (Done)

Bughouse (Done)

*Puzzle Rush doesn't count since there is no rating count for it.
