    Not sure about that, all i know is that she is working and she hasnt said anything about it being canceled. There are fighters from Shanghai that will be there doing an 8 man tournament.

    Here is a wechat post that is being circulated:

    Seems the major areas were guarded last night: Tianfu Sq, Chunxi Lu and Rem nin nan lu. If someone ventures into the city, please tell your exp if you see cops. This isnt bad as a few years ago when there were ‘protesting’ Japanese something with a policeman on every street corner.

    And im not from CHengdu but i live and work here now.

    That sucks, I stopped using paypal since it uses 5% feels for round trip. Bitcoin is better and easier I think.

    I use taobao to pay for my phone. You need online checking to pay for taobao.

    It will open ‘next week’ as they say, but i highly doubt it (realistically i say in 3 weeks). Will give location soon once it opens. It’s called ‘Running Tiger.’ A cheap knock off name from Tiger Muay Thai in Thailand.

    I was able to use wexin to buy meals, the specials online. I have ICBC (online buying avail) and by entering my card number and create a password, i am able to purchase things online. I can use alipay too, but there are too much passwords i have to remember for it so i dont bother with it.

    Get ICBC, makes life easier. Also make sure you can make online purchases of over 1500 RMB, so you can transfer money infront of your computer.

    Just had checked my official ranking.. Its under 1200, kinda funky really.

    Yea i tied a GM in college at a simul (he was playing 25 people).

    Havent played chess in years. Just ‘life’ has been busy and cant play it as much as i like to. Def not as good as i use to be.

    Great site to improve chess skills/tactics.

    Officially im 1300-1400 Ranking in Chess. Poss 1200. But i tied a GM in a simul and tied a master at a starbux back home. I beat someone over 2000 at a starbux before and many over 1700 in rank games. Havent played chess in years, gets boring if playing 2+ hours.

    New gym will be called ‘Running Tiger.’ It will open in August. There will be crossfit there or some other form of calisthenics. If not my teammates will run a class.

    There is no website for this gym yet. Still in the process of making the gym.

    There will be a new gym opening up in Chengdu, next to IFS (like 1KM due east, next to the river). It will be about 30-40000 sq meters. Will likely open in August. Not sure what kind of equipment they will have but price is about 2500 a year.

    It will also dub as a martial arts center, which is why im advertising.

    Moved on to Astrill and never been happier. Had my VPN on for few days on straight with no interruptions also my torrents as well. Strong doesn’t allow torrents, F them.
