FIDE player card for Wen Yang

(born Jul-07-1988, 28 years old) China
[what is this?]
IM (2007); GM (2007). China's 25th Grandmaster.

His IM norms were won at the 2005 U18 World Youth Chess Championship held in Belfort, France, the 2005 World Junior Chess Championship held in Istanbul, Turkey (Nov 9-22 2005) and at the Aeroflot Open 2006 A2 Group in Moscow, Russia. He won his first GM norm at the 2006 World Junior Championship and acquired his GM title when he won his second (a 20-game norm) at the 2007 Asian Continental Championship.

Wen Yan won the 2010 Singapore Open with 8.5/9. His equal second placement at the Asian Continental Championship in 2014 earned him a qualification to play in the World Cup (2015). There he defeated Igor Kovalenko in a mild upset in the first round but then lost to Peter Leko in the second round and was therefore eliminated from the World Cup.
