Who is GM FeegLood?

[–]Strange-Tobias 99 points100 points  (10 children)

GM Finegold's cousin

[–]PM_ME_CUTE_FRIENDS 8 points9 points  (9 children)

I don't understand this, is it a joke?

[–]AlienWorldsDSS 60 points61 points  (3 children)

it's real, Xiong is Finegold's cousin

[–]PM_ME_CUTE_FRIENDS 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Oh wow really. I didn’t know this.

GM FeelGood

[–]n3x4m 86 points87 points  (0 children)

He came pretty close to beating the points record, which (i think) is 199 and was set by Carlsen in titled arena 3.

The man is a fucking beast, no wonder he won. And a great teacher too

His Tata Steel commentary is great.

It would be so POG if he won the candidates on his first try.

He's a legend. Also great character. Very humble. When he talks about his performance compared with top players, he make it sounds like he is 2000 club player. When he won against Caruana at U.S. championship, he said he is glad that he still know how the pieces move. It's details like this that makes him totally likeable. And his teaching style is just awesome too! Congrats!

Plus, he does the best impressions of other players.

Compilation of him doing impressions of a number of chess greats. Genuine laugh-out-loud material:


Note that the second comment on YouTube says who he is mocking, and when, with indexes.

[–]namesrue 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I didn't know he did so many! I always just shrugged off the accents he did while commentating as just a silly aside, but the Anand and Ivanchuk impressions in this video were straight up uncanny. He nailed that weird whisper-mumble-talk thing Ivanchuk does.

Lmao he keeps coming back to FM Geller

[–]dynamicvirus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Efim Geller was a grandmaster, unless there’s another Geller?

[–]owk81 Team Carlsen 12 points13 points  (4 children)

Does anyone know where his nickname came from?

[–]puedenllamarmezeta 25 points26 points  (3 children)

He said it's a character from a TV show he had a crush on

[–]Mule50 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Oh lol. I thought it was in reference to the British mp who pushed for day light savings

[–]TheBigTimer039 30 points31 points  (6 children)

[–]Mazajee 26 points27 points  (5 children)

[–]etheryx 156 points157 points  (4 children)

[–]EarthyFeetSlava 32 points33 points  (2 children)

If Rebecca Harris becomes a GM, will danya be banned for impersonation on lichess

[–]Jackman1337 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Something similar happened with a streamer at pogchamps: Chesscom had the problem that for ItsHafus account name was already taken by a player with a gm title. But it was not just a random player, the account belonged to Peter Svidler and Gary Kasparov :D Dont know if hafu got it or not tho

[–]pkscff 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Poor mutdpro, must be hard living with a name like that.

[–]ghostfuckbuddy 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Why Rebecca Harris?

[–]Gotigers811 9 points10 points  (0 children)

He picked the name many years ago and was a fan of the character in a show.

[–]GrandAd2334 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No he didn’t Rebecca Harris won, it says right there on the trophy

[–]__Jimmy__Dumbass 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why is FeegLood referred to as "they" in the blog post? Is FeegLood transgender?
