This piece of news is old but it will be of some interest to our overseas readers - especially Filipinos. Thirteen-year old Australian junior Zhigen Lin topped the 2006 Elwood Bendigo Bank tournament in Victoria. Zhigen Lin secured first place on 6 points, a half point ahead of his nearest pursuers. His victims included IM Guy West and Pinoy FM Jesse Sales.
Sales, who is presently a resident of Melbourne, Victoria, scored only 4.5 points.
