Zhao wins in Brazil!

After taking an early lead in the 2nd Euwe Stimulans Tournament in Brazil, Australian GM Zong Yuan Zhao ended the event tied for first with Brazilian GM Gilberto Milos, on 6.5/9. Zhao scored 5 wins, 3 draws and a single loss, the Dutch GM John van der Wiel.
Zhao's score of 6.5 was good enough for a performance rating above 2600 and indicates that he is in good form going into this years Olympiad.

Yuan won on countback and apparently is returning home with a nice first place trophy. :)

So how many ratings points does this bring David closer to his GM title?
