XiMing Zheng takes second place for Toronto in North American championships

Toronto could do no better than seventh in the team results of the Fourth North American XiangQi Championships, but three-time Toronto champion Zheng XiMing salvaged our pride by finishing second in the individual standings.

The first place team was US Central, an all-Vietnamese team from Houston. Second went to Calgary’s A team, and third to Houston.

The individual tournament was won by Oscar Peng (彭 佳 文) of the New York’s United East Chinese Chess Club (UECCC). Third went to Yogi Thang Do (杜 國 勝) of US Central. Zhi LianLi, who came second in the 2011 Toronto championship, finished 24th in this event.

Our contratulations to the prize-winners, and to all those who participated.

Below are the official results of the tournament.
