Chen Yaoye was born in Beijing, China. He is a young Go player who, at the age of 16, had already beaten Lee Chang-ho, arguably the best Go player in the world. He has won a title, the 2005 National Go Individual with a record of 7 wins and 2 losses. At the time he was 15 years and 9 months of age, the youngest Chinese player to win the tournament. After beating Lee in the 10th LG Cup, he scored two more wins in that tournament to progress to the final. In March 2006, he faced off against Gu Li in the final of the 10th LG Cup. Chen had lost the first two matches, but won the next two games to tie it at 2–2. It came to the final fifth game, and Chen lost. He was promoted to 9 dan in 2007 after he was runner-up to Lee Sedol in the Asian TV Cup.
Chen's style is characterised by his strong preference for early territory, much like Cho Chikun.
