"The Whitgift 13-year-old recently won the Coulsdon Premier with 8.5/9, gaining nearly 100 world rating points which will make him England's highest ranked under-18 after Howell in the July Fide list."
"Lower down the tournament table [in Hastings 2008] the significant performance was by Yang-Fan Zhou. The fast-improving 13-year-old from Whitgift, Croydon, who had showed promise last year in the British championship and the world U-14, scored 5/10 against opposition including four IMs, played far above his modest rating, won a couple of nice attacks and looked a potential master."

Yang-Fan Zhou breaks English international master drought

How does Zhou's performance compare to some the other "picket-fence" scores in tournaments?

How does Zhou's performance compare to some the other "picket-fence" scores in tournaments?>
It's obviously a wonderful result (and <extremely> rare these days), but apart from the two GMs the field was pretty weak, with Zhou's other opponents all rated between 2000 and 2300. http://www.e2e4.org.uk/brighton/Feb... It certainly doesn't compare with the greatest such tournament result, Fischer's at the US Championship 1963/64 (1963). See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_... for the other contenders. I should look up Belyavsky's 13/13 result at Alicante 1978, the last significant perfect score, and work out how Zhou's result compares to it. I ran across it in Chess Informant recently. IIRC, that tournament was something like a Category V tournament, average rating 2338 or some such. Of course the average rating of Belyavsky's opponents would have been lower than that, since doubtless he was the highest-rated player.
|Jan-26-14|| ||FSR: By my calculation, the average rating of Zhou's opponents was only 2238, presumably meaning that his TPR in beating them all was only 2638. A wonderful result for a FIDE Master, no doubt, but hardly record-setting.|
