|Jan-06-15|| ||Penguincw: Congrats to Zhao Jun for winning the 90th Hastings Chess Congress (2014). He started out with 7 straight wins before "limping" in the end with 2 draws with black. He placed a full point ahead of 3 players.|
Zhao Jun went 8/9 in the tournament, which is a TPR of 2852. With his current rating of 2595, he's in line to gain 25.6 to rise to 2620.6, which I believe is a career high.
