Aug-03-06  DutchDunce: Gao Rui Kas Pa Rov?

Well, at least he drew one game...

Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: Well, his opponents here were quite strong
Jun-28-08  Newmark: Gao Rui - rated 2139 & born 1992 - won the First Saturday June IM event. And he has already gained a whopping 258.85 points this rating quarter, meaning he will go over 2400 on July> Maybe one to watch in the future.
Sep-06-08  akhc: Jumped 259 points from April to July 08. This quarter so far he's picked up another 135 points which will take him up to 2533 and he's only 16. He's certainly taken his opportunities and I think we'll hear more of him soon.

Sep-09-08  Newmark: Other top Chinese male juniors include:

Zhou Jianchao (age 20) - rated 2604 (+8)
Li Chao* (age 19) - rated 2590 (+15)
Zhao Jun (age 21) - rated 2568
Zhou Weiqi (age 21) - rated 2556 (-7)
Wen Yang (age 20) - rated 2487 (+16)

*Li Chao is currently playing somewhere in the Philippines

Sep-09-08  shintaro go: <*Li Chao is currently playing somewhere in the Philippines> Correct. He is currently participating in the 3rd PGMA International Open, where he is the defending champion. He is the fifth seed (top seed GM Kazhgaleyev Murtas of Kazahkstan 2641). Other notables: GM Zhang Zhong 2632, GM Nguyen Ngoc Truong Son 2579, GM Eugene Torre, GM Susanto Megaranto, and GM Wesley So.

Oct-19-09  redwhitechess: He is an IM now!
Jan-07-13  Kikoman: He gained his final GM norm at the recent Hastings Chess Congress (2012). :)
