Zong Yuan Zhao Bags Norm

Australian chess fans are celebrating this morning after hearing the important news that international master Zong-Yuan Zhao has just secured his second GM norm in Spain. We have confirmation here and here.

The Australian will now head off to Sevilla** followed later by a stint in the 6th Gibtelecom Chess Festival in Gibraltar.

** Note that this is the first link I found that pertains to a Sevilla event. We're awaiting confirmation if that is, indeed, the correct one.

However the site you list covers all events within the Seville Chess Federation.

There is also another event which usually gets held in Coria del Rio a town outside Seville shortly after the Gibralter Masters. Zhao might be interested in that event too.

Finally, let's not forget suitable satellite events at Linares.
