'09 '11 '12 Chinese Chess Championship winner

'19 Grand Chess Tour winner

China’s number 1 was a fixture in the first edition of the Tour, but has missed the last two events of this season. A real big-hitter who has had to battle playing in a disadvantageous timezone and connection problems as he tries to make his mark.
