"xsfye" - Chinese 9d with 202-0 score!

Xsfye is kind of a funny player on Tygem.  He won 202 games, and lost none! But ... he started as 18 kyu - it's the lowest rank on Tygem.  However, the way Tygem works with its ranking system, if you win a bunch consecutively, you can actually skip two ranks.  So, xsfye skipped the rank of 8d, and has played no games as 9d.

So while he is 9d on Tygem, he has only played other 7d players. Here is one of xsfye's recent games
His opponents didn't have significantly good stats, so I didn't list them.  xsfye's stats are pretty basic: He's 202-0, and he has 36024 ranking points.

What do you think about xsfye? Is he professional? Or even top professional?

My personal opinion: he is not stronger than European 6d or KGS 7d

Alex's question is more like a challenge question to readers to see if readers are able to measure Black's rank thru his game or not.

I would say Black plays like KGS 8d at least.

If you think that he's about 6d in Europe, why you ask if he may be top professional? This is the question like: might bicycle win F1 race?! ;-)
