The 83rd Annual Southwest Open was held in Irving, Texas on August 31–September 4, 2017. Our club player, Zile Cao, attended this nation-wide tournament. After 4 days, 7 rounds of long games, he won the first place of “Class B” with $300+ prize. This was a good experience for him to compete with strong players from other states. Playing the long games also improved his skills in deep thinking. Congratulations to him!
