The 4th Danzhou Tournament was won by Ding Liren with an undefeated score of 7/9 points.

The 10-player single round-robin competition was held from from 20-29 May in Hainan Danzhou and featured an impressive line-up of Chinese Grandmasters.

Ding Liren missed the recently held Chinese Championships because he had a starting place in the Alekhine Memorial instead.

The current youngest Grandmaster in the world, 13 year-old Wei Yi scored a respectable 4½ points.

The time control was 90 minutes for 40 moves and then 30 minutes to finish, with a 30 second increment from the start.
