    Hi everyone,

    In the second game, I believe that Zhao would have actually played 44...Kg6 which is miles better than Kg5, which is a blunder allowing White to win a piece by 45.Rf5+ and then after 45...Kh4 46.Rxe5 g3 47. Re8 to keep the extra piece and stop the pawn on g3

    I might be wrong...... but I don't think so

    Take care and God Bless, Macavity

    With computer assistance, looks like 23.Bxh6!! indeed wins in Zhao's first game, but if Black puts up resistance White has a long and beautiful path to the victory.

    Here is an example of what might have been had black put up a struggle:

    What might have been

    At first blush 34...Bf8 looked like a possible escape route, with a new flight square for the king (e7) and the counter-threats of ...Re1# and ...Bxh6

    However White sweeps all that aside with 35.Rf3+ Ke7 36.Rf7+ Kd6 37.Qxg6+ Re6 38.Qxe6#, all forced

    Well done!. Although I think it's a little unfair that Zhao had to play two people controlling the black pieces.

    The kid is on fire. Beat previous tournament leader Larino and GM Movszisian to go to 4.5. Now only needs 2/4 for the norm - mind you, that 4 includes 3 GMs.

    I really hope Zhao does not "semi-retire" from chess after gaining his GM title. Wehave every reason to believe that his progress will go as far as the world's top 100!
