Wang Hao

Black to play after 16.Qxg7

The incredible performance of Wang Hao, who finished 2 full points ahead of the GM-filled field at the Malaysian Open, suggests that the next rising star of chess is likely to come from the East. There is excellent coverage of the recently concluded tournament at the ChessBase site by Edwin Lam Choong Wai. There you can download the games as Zipped PGN or play over the incredible game Rogers-Hao, Malaysian Open 2005 (from which the diagram above is drawn).
