Ian Zhao wins 2018 Alberta Open

By Sammy Yao
Ian Zhao is the youngest Alberta Open chess champion in the history of the tournament at 13 years of age! Previously only Richard Wang of Edmonton came close when he was the co-winner in 2013 at the age of 15. This stunning result will surely go down as one of key events in Alberta chess history. Congratulations Ian!
