Yifan Hou, a new chess star on the horizon

Yifan Hou will seek another GM norm in Merida

A few weeks ago the Chinese chess prodigy Yifan Hou won the Ataturk Masters tournament with the convincing score of 7,0/9, a point ahead of the second. She did not lose a single game and with 5 wins and 4 draws did not leave any chance to the other participants. Besides, she covered a GM norm, as there were 2 GM players and she had well above 2600 performance.

This is not the first time that Yifan Hou performs well at a competition, it is rather something that becomes a habit for her. Here are some interesting events and the scores she achieved in them.
