That's a very good start. His draw was with black against the top seed Milos.

Lets hope he does not give up chess due to Work commitments and gets to 2650.

I'll be very interested to see how he goes at the Olympiad. 2650 performance is very much a possibility.

Let's have none of this talk from you alright. Look what happened to your beloved Aussie Olympians. They were pummeled left, right and centre, going home crying to mama.

Maybe we would have won more gold if John Howard was running the show. Those Labors have really sent the country downhill overnight.

+5=3-1 is a pretty fine score, and bodes well for Dresden.

A great result :D What is especially satisfying is that it confirms Zhao's consistency as he has been turning in PRs of around 2600 now for more than 18 months.
