Feb-25-09  BIDMONFA: Zhou Weiqi

ZHOU, Weiqi

May-23-09  jon01: Zhou Weiqi seems to be another top player rising from China.
May-24-09  Ladolcevita: ZhouWeiqi is Bu Xiangzhi's second,because they are close friends.

But I think ZhouJianChao is possibly more promising than ZhouWeiqi

Oct-25-09  mnntman: Put in a 2700+ performance in Chigorin Memorial

Oct-25-09  redwhitechess: He just shared first at Chigorin Memorial. The lady Ju Wenjun now a WGM is first in female category. No CG link to this event?
Feb-15-10  tonsillolith: Wow that is just bizarre; "Weiqi" is the Chinese word for the board game Go.
