Chinese professional rating:
In 2021-11-02, Go Ratings ranked him #31 internationally and #21 in China.
Zhao has had three teachers: Han Ye, Zhao Wendong and Li Kui.
He reached the semifinal of the 2021 Samsung Cup, eventually losing to Park Junghwan. His victory over Yamashita Keigo in the round of sixteen was reviewed live by Michael Redmond.
In the same year, he again reached a major semifinal, that of the 9th Ing Cup. This time he lost (0-2) to Shin Jinseo.
As of 2021-11-18, Go Ratings ranks him as #29.
bugcat: This is way too low imo. There's no way that a player who reaches both the Samsung and Ing semifinals in the same year isn't in the top ten.
