QUN MA (born 1991) China
[ what is this?]
Qun Ma (马群) won his first GM norm when he scored 6.5 in the first 9 rounds of the 2nd Chairman Prospero A. Pichay at Subic in June 2011, going on to score 7/10 and equal 4th at that event. His 2nd GM norm came at
10th Asian Individual Championships (2011), when his 5.5/9 was sufficient to win a 20 game GM norm and the title of grandmaster.
He tied for 1st at the
Universiade (2013) and his incredible 7/7 performance at the Asian Nations Cup (2014) helped secure China 1st place. Last updated: 2017-01-19 05:15:40
